In September of this year, the AGP promoted a call for submissions inviting artists to submit new, recent, or past works that resonate with the contemporary moment.  A jury comprised of Sonya Jones (Curator of Collections at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery), Dyan Marie (practicing artist and a founder of C-Magazine, Cold City Gallery, DIG IN, Walk Here, Dupont Projects, BIG: Bloor Improvement Group, and the BIG On Bloor Festival), and Clayton Windatt (a Métis non–binary multi-artist currently Executive Director of the Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference/La Conférence des collectifs et des centres d’artistes autogérés) selected from works submitted by 179 artists living across Canada and beyond. The Art Gallery of Peterborough is grateful for the care, dedication, and experience they contributed to this process. Sonya, Dyan, and Clayton wish to extend their deepest appreciation to all those who applied and express the awe they felt learning about your work. It was a truly impressive response.  

This moment, complex and layered, merits a complicated response. Gathered here are works bringing forward themes of transition, anxiety, frustration, comfort, boredom, resistance, vulnerability, urgency, and resilience. Expressed through painting, needlework and textile, installation, film and video, photography, pottery, image transfer, drawing, text, collage, printmaking, assemblage performance, and sculpture, a conversation between artists who may never meet face-to-face hums and ticks in aggregate.
