Here are a variety of shots from the Disturbances in the Field opening at the inaugeral exhibition at the Omineca Arts Centre, Prince George, BC on May 12, 2017. All photographs by Denis Gutiérrez-Ogrinc. Curated by Caitlin Chaisson. Featuring 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). From the curatorial statement: “The exhibition aims to complicate our understanding of land-use in Canada, using material and visual experimentation as tools for new modes of thinking. The artists cross the disciplinary boundaries of drawing, sculpture, mixed media, multimedia and performance, eliciting alternative and compelling ways to relate to the land.”
It began with a Territory welcome and performance of several songs by the Khast’an Drummers of the Lheidli T’enneh Nation.
