Disturbances in the Field features new works by Annerose Georgeson (Vanderhoof), Bill Horne (Wells), Andrew Maize (Musquodoboit Harbour), Jennifer Annaïs Pighin (Prince George), Perry Rath (Smithers) and the RR7@Crysdale Crossing Collective (Karen Kellett, Judyta Frodyma, Joanna Smythe) (Prince George). The exhibition aims to complicate our understanding of land-use in Canada, using material and visual experimentation as a proposition for new paradigms. The artists cross the disciplinary boundaries of drawing, sculpture, mixed media, multimedia and performance, eliciting alternative and compelling ways to relate to the land.
Far Afield is a multifaceted artist-led initiative committed to experimental research, publications, exhibitions, community engagement, and emergent practices. Through temporary and long-term projects, Far Afield aims to support regionally-connected artistic and curatorial practices. As a collaborative platform for artists and a resource for multiple publics, the project advocates for the support of de-centered fields of interest and methods of working, particularly projects considered to be out of the way, out of the ordinary, or otherwise unexpected.
