TYRANNY brings together a group of contemporary artists who in unique ways confront dominant cultural narratives in the work they make. Included are examples of sculpture, installation, video, painting, and drawing that search for new and different perspectives while revealing wider truths about the world we live in.

In examining issues and concerns that are intertwined with the systems of influence, authority, and control, this permanent collection exhibition brings a fresh outlook on today’s society and political landscape to the forefront. Through the critical frame of their work, the artists in TYRANNY highlight art's ability to give voice, raise awareness, and challenge the status quo.

Evangeline: Evolution of an Icon
May 15 - October 31, 2021

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow never stepped foot in the lands of the Acadians, yet the heroine of his epic poem titled Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie became embedded in the history and culture of Louisiana and Nova Scotia. Longfellow’s poem received international acclaim when published in 1847. The public was fascinated with the story of a young Acadian maiden separated from her fiancé on her wedding day during the brutal deportation of the French-speaking people from Acadia, and her epic journey to find him. The success of Longfellow’s poem launched Evangeline into literary stardom and into the hearts of the Acadian people themselves. Uniting the Acadian people of Nova Scotia and Louisiana, Evangeline’s name and image became a symbol of Acadian and Cajun cultural identity.

This exhibition, organized by the West Baton Rouge Museum, provides a glimpse into Evangeline’s evolving status from her inception through today as a legend and heroine, to a brand image and celebrity, and ultimately into a cultural icon. Inspiring writers, artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs, Evangeline has appeared in many guises. Along the way, her image morphed from that of a demure Victorian-era maiden into a confident modern woman. This exhibition includes artworks by Canadian and Louisiana artists, including François Gaudet, Rémi Belliveau, Melissa Bonin, Mario Doucette, and George Rodrigue, as well as artifacts and paraphernalia to demonstrate Evangeline’s transformation and her timeless appeal. The exhibit opens Saturday, May 15 and runs through October 31st.

Symphony New Brunswick

Symphony New Brunswick is excited to continue our collaborations with the Beaverbrook Art Gallery and CollectionARTNB. We will be featuring art from New Brunswick collections projected on screen during our May concert, “Future Promises.”

Francis Poulenc's “Two Marches and an Interlude” will be paired with New Brunswick artist, Mario Doucette’s “1755 (Se réfugier dans la forêt II/ Take Refuge in the Forest II).” Both works evoke a playful narrative of taking refuge in the woods amongst the colourful flowers of spring. Some moments have a cheerful quality, like a glorious promenade, while others suggest something more sinister in the depths of the trees.

Concert Dates: 
May 12, 2021 7:30 PM Imperial Theatre, Saint John
May 15 , 2021, 7:30 PM The Playhouse, Fredericton
May 16, 2021, 2 PM Capitol Theatre, Moncton
