"The flag is a question for the art event itself, towards our political leaders, social amnesia, inequities in health and social care, and to all the plans we had made." - Siegel & Henderson | Tourism & Infomation
ON-DEMAND TUTORIALS & WORKSHOPS
Struts is pleased to launch a series of on-demand video tutorials and workshops, hosted by Production Manager Lucas Morneau.
In partnership with the Owens Art Gallery we bring you Umbrella Projects - a new collaborative venture designed to pool our resources, energies, and respective strengths in order to facilitate new, innovative, off-site programming during the pandemic.
POSTER: Lenka Clayton | Tragically, The World's Oldest Person Keeps Dying, 2020
We’re pleased to launch the first of eight new artist posters. They are each autonomous works, but can also be read collectively through the lens of the pandemic, with subject matter such as fear, safety and mortality.
POSTER: Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber | I'm not afraid, flowers just tremble
This painting comes from the artists' ongoing series Flowers. Each painting in the series depicts a flower, or flowers, accompanied by a text. Often these texts use the flowers to reflect on human experiences, with humour and melancholy.
POSTER: Melanie Colosimo | Life Saver
“Life Savers” is from a series of drawings that reflect on the role that community plays during a pandemic, when we are forced to be separated, but trying to remain afloat together.
POSTER: Séamus Gallagher | Terrified
From the series "Dear Friend," this work features the artist’s paper drag persona partaking in trivial/recreational domestic activities, such as day-drinking, doomscrolling, taking selfies, doing dishes, etc.
