BEING+

Wednesday, January 12 - Tuesday, March 1

Free

‘BEING+’ is an online exhibition curated by Abisola Oni with the mentorship of Flavio Belli The exhibition explores the nexus between the experience of the individual and the objective social and cultural forces that bind this experience. Simone De Beauvoir recognizes the ambiguity of the human experience which suggests we are both subjects who act, and objects who are acted upon, constrained by our physical limits, social barriers, and the political powers of others (The Ethics of Ambiguity, pp.7-34). ‘BEING+’ similarly considers the variable states of selfhood and complicates the rigidity of subject-object relations.

‘BEING+’ consists of abstract, figurative, installation, and collage artworks by Biba Esaad, Noah Lima, Miles Ingrassia, Roxana Parsa, Michelle Cieloszczyk, and Michelle Rodrigues. The artists examine the experience of being in relation to social and cultural phenomena by expressing diverse subjectivities through formal elements and subject matter. Collectively, ‘BEING+’ considers nuances in the socio-cultural influences on gender, power relations, the racialized body, and the role of place and kinship in the conceptualization of identity. As a result, ‘BEING+’ forms an exploration of selfhood that lends itself to the understanding of collective memory.

‘BEING+’ is viewable online through propellerartgallery.com and TOAF.ca/BEING+
