At a Time: Tender and Tense (2021)
At a Time: Tender And Tense brings together new works by 5 local (Edmonton) artists: Agata Garbowska, Luke Johnson, Riaz Mehmood, Sergio Serrano, and Brianna Tosswill. Each artist has participated in a SNAP residency program over the past 2 years, and while their practices and projects range widely, they share in the struggle and triumph of creating works during periods of social and physical isolation, constantly shifting constraints on access and studio activity, and a time of prolonged distance from community and from each other. While the challenges of the past two years aren’t overtly addressed in these works – themes of time passing and nods to historical and contemporary change captured through print and technological media landscapes are evident throughout.
"Poetic Resistance: The Public and Private Politics of Drone Warfare: An Interview with Riaz Mehmood" by Danielle Siemens, see SNAPLine: Public/Private issue (2021).
Organized by SNAP Gallery in Edmonton, Alberta. October 23 - November 20, 2021. For more on the exhibition, see At a Time: Tender and Tense (2021).
