Presented by AKA artist-run and Schleifmühlgasse 12-14
May 5 – June 13, 2015
Opening Reception May 5, 7pm
Schleifmühlgasse 12-14, 1040 Vienna, Austria
Amalie Atkins (Saskatchewan, CA), Jason de Haan (Alberta, CA), Melanie Ender (Vienna, AT), Agnes Hamvas (Vienna, AT), Divya Mehra (Manitoba, CA), Mindy Yan Miller (Saskatchewan, CA), Stephanie Patsula (British Columbia, CA), Eva Maria Schartmüller (Vienna, AT), Astrid Sodomka (Vienna, AT) Curated by Tarin Hughes
In a geographically unlikely partnership, initiated by Regina-based artist Zachari Logan, AKA artist-run and Schleifmühlgasse 12-14 have developed an exchange project connecting Austrian and Canadian artists working in a variety of mediums. Through an ongoing dialogue, curators Denise Parizek and Tarin Hughes have connected two exhibitions and adjunct programming around the land, water and geographic space. The slow moving rivers, the Wein/Danube in Vienna and the South Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, are the main geographical similarities shared between the cities. The idea of the slow but purposeful rivers finds resonance in the contemplative nature of the works included in the exchange.
