Here is an excerpted description of the show from the LAB's website:
“Alternorthern” was conceived in the tension that exists between nationalism, globalization, and individualism: the exhibition is a product of both cultural values and cultural hybridism. The nine artists in this exhibition function similarly in that they use their own identities to make gestures that transgress time and space. Each artist in the exhibition is Canadian, yet each creates work that speaks to issues pertinent to both Canadian and global geographic and political landscapes.
The show runs from February 12th to March 6th. The opening is February 12th from 6-9pm.
Hope to see you there!
