Latent

January 6 - April 6, 2024

Legacy Downtown | 630 Yates St.
Lekwungen territory

The exhibition Latent emerges from conversations between artist Lynda Gammon and curator Carolyn Butler Palmer over the past several years about how artists who identify as women are often overlooked, ignored and sidestepped. At the Legacy Art Galleries, over the past decade the majority of solo exhibitions have featured the work of women artists and this exhibition furthers a desire to bring forward their work by honouring the many women who remain hidden in the University of Victoria's Art Collection and the mechanisms that conceal them from view: the vault, accessioning, and the catalogue.

Shaping Relations, Tethered Together

Curated by Mel Granley.

Shaping Relations, Tethered Together dives into Legacy's permanent collection to explore ideas of togetherness and that which cultivates relationships. Each work examines a different facet of the relationships people form with one another, the world around us, and our relationships with ourselves. Tenderness and the importance of connection are meditated on throughout the exhibition, through a diverse selection of media and artists.

Showing at the Legacy Maltwood Gallery on campus, please come visit this eclectic show and spend some time with us.
