CCC
March 19, 2017 - April 22, 2017

CCC is the two person collective of Angela Shackel (audio) and Braden Labonte (visual). Through their combined effort they aim to create alternative avenues to engage with ideas of history, labour, introspection and identity. Their work uses a combination of audio, immersive environments and performance to examine a topic and create a cross disciplinary experience that engages the audience in alternate modes of knowledge translation. Past projects have taken the form of audiowalks, podcasts, short plays and temporal installations. By reexamining/remixing histories CCC’s projects poke and prod around the edges of learning that are harder to define – their works explore different fields of research and wade into places of ambiguity and uncertainty.

April 30, 2017 - June 3, 2017

Beth Frey is a Montreal-based artist working in drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. Using humour and pathos, Frey examines the boundaries and ruptures of the body as sites of growth and creativity vis-a-vis the boundaries and ruptures intrinsic to the art objects she creates.

Marco D’Andrea
June 25, 2017 - July 29, 2017

Born in Ontario, Canada, D’Andrea grew up in the small town of Sharon. In this semi-rural community the legacy of the 1970s – long hair, big cars, loud stereo systems and hard rock on vinyl – still had influence. Sound had weight and dimension; D’Andrea has strong memories of lying on the floor listening to Deep Purple records, feeling the bass in his body and imagining different worlds.

Marc Bell
September 24, 2017 - October 28, 2017

Marc Bell has befuddled and bemused his readers for over twenty years. He is the author of Stroppy, Hot Potatoe [sic], Pure Pajamas, and Shrimpy and Paul and Friends and is a co-founder of The All-Star Schnauzer Band. His comics have appeared in many Canadian weeklies, Vice, and LA Weekly. He has also shown his artwork in galleries all over the world. He appeared in Sackville, NB during the Spring of 2015 to distribute some jam (for FREE) but there were not many takers (if any). He sometimes updates his old blog marcbelldept.blogspot.com. He has an instagram account but doesn’t use it.
