Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens and at Centennial Square. Organized and circulated by the Dunlop Art Gallery
Please join Oakville Galleries for our fall exhibition opening on Sunday 19 September from 2:30 pm–3:30 pm at Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square, followed by a reception at Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens from 3:30 pm–5:00 pm. Diabolique curator Amanda Cachia will be present to speak about the exhibition.
Diabolique brings together twenty-one artists who address the impact of war, violence and human conflict on contemporary life. An electric mix of dark scenes and evocative narratives, the works in this exhibition pose pressing questions about the human capacity for violence.Marked by tangible and intangible elements of anxiety, hope and struggle, banalities and birthrights, and sublime truths within harsh realities, Diabolique begs contemplation of social and political crises both close to home and global in scale.
Diabolique features works by Bogdan Achimescu, Matilda Aslizadeh, Rebecca Belmore, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Dana Claxton, Douglas Coupland, Mario Doucette, David Garneau, William Kentridge, Wanda Koop, Fawad Khan, Emanuel Licha, Shirin Neshat, Michael Patterson-Carver, Dan Perjovschi, Raymond Pettibon, Nancy Spero, Althea Thauberger, Jason Thiry, Scott Waters, and Balint Zsako.
Curated by Amanda Cachia.
