This year, there is one word that unites us all: flux. To flux is to change and allow space to ebb and flow. This exhibition highlights emerging artists that have found a way to collaborate while in a time where we’re more separate than we’ve ever been.
In a time when inspiration is difficult to find, these artists worked to reinvent the way they create. To create from home is to find accessible ways to create, to fluctuate from our comfort zone, and to thrive. This exhibition will feature many materials, from soft sculptures, to painting, to digital works, proving that our limitations can sometimes lead to new and beautiful things.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
