NEW MEASURES: A collection of new works created under different circumstances.

September 30, 2020

Collision Gallery

Oct 1-7th 2020

Featured Artists: Chris Gardiner, Dalia Hassan, Dorota Dziong, Felicia Cirstea, Franziska Barczyk, Hamid Mohammadi, Jill Price, Jihun Lee, Linds Miyo


Beginning in October of 2019, the Akin Studio artist residency entered its second year of successfully hosting a number of artists working across a wide range of disciplines. Hit by the material realities of COVID 19 like all other art organizations and institutional facilities, AKIN and the artists who remained at 158 Sterling Rd. needed to take new measures to not only remain safe while working in the studios and forge forward with their creative practice, but also needed to devise different ways of measuring productivity and success while coexisting and working with others as exhibition opportunities, teaching engagements and curatorial projects were all placed on hold. As seen by the work, the ever shifting parameters of a global pandemic resulted in some artists turning inwards, others turning to the empty streets for inspiration and some just needing to find meaning in play. Whether surreal or abstract, figurative or architectural, each artist has either intentionally or subconsciously captured different aspects of what it means to live in a time where everything we once took for granted has drastically changed or been unmade due to the dangerous realities of the once unreal.

March 20, 2020

2020 Undisciplined Conference

Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Queen's University

Kingston, Ontario

March 20 - 22, 2020

 

Organised by a group of Cultural Studies graduate students involved in modes of inquiry that intersect the humanities, social sciences, sciences, technology, activism, and the arts, UnDisciplined is a space for sharing scholarly, artistic, and/or activist work that theorizes or reveals forces that shape human experience. Join Jill Price for a 90 minute drawing workshop to explore how past ecological art practices might be adapted to the lawn and site of Fort Henry to culturally and ecologically this national historic site as a response to Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action and to assist in Kingston, Ontario's resistance to climate change. 

Participants will be provided with all drawing materials and source material. 

Ban Righ Speaker Series: Undoing as Activism: A Movement Towards Slow Art

March 16, 2020

Jill Price, PhD, Department of Cultural Studies

Monday, March 16th @ 12:00 pm

 

Hyper-sensitive to her Canadian settler history, present and future in a culture that remains complicit in the ecological erasure of Indigenous persons and land at home and abroad, Price sees the "goods" of today as the trash of tomorrow and therefore physical and lively extensions of colonization. Presenting on artists, industrial leaders and eco-citizens who embrace undoing and unmaking as creative acts, come add to the discussion on what does it mean to undo, what needs unmaking and how we might collectively de-accelerate the pace at which we design, extract and make.

Accelerated Art, Accelerated Culture UACC Panel

October 25, 2019

Chaired by Julian Jason Haladyn ( Canadian writer and independent curator)

Hilton Hotel, Quebec City

Friday, October 25, 9 am

As an iteration of my upcoming publication Undoing as Activism, this panel led presentation argues that by first unmaking that which already exists, one can slow the accelerated rate at which we think, grow, extract, produce, consume and dispose of goods. In addition to presenting personal art experimentations and reflections, the work of Peter von Tiesenhausen,Katie Patterson and Sharon Kallis will be brought forward to offer examples of art practices that resist acceleration both materially and aesthetically, demonstrating how many immaterial and material things become unmade when taking earth, the final audience and owner of all things, into account.

 

An UNTWISTING: A durational performance exploring the potential of unmaking and existing and hidden materials.

September 19, 2019

Thursday, September 19, 10 am - finished

Isabel Bader Performance Art Centre - Art & Media Lab

Kingston, Ontario

FREE EVENT

Currently pursuing a research-creation PhD in Cultural Studies and continuing to acknowledge my role as a maker, settler and consumer in the Anthropocene, "An Untwisting" is a follow-up performance to Undoing #1, a durational work where I unravelled a shrunk and damaged acrylic / wool poncho until it was beautiful piles of yarn.  These quiet gestures offer a way to explore how “unmaking” serves as a creative act and might reveal unknown potential hidden in our culture’s material excess so that we can begin to imagine design systems of production and exchange built on foundations of human care and environmental concern.

 

This more public sitting invites the viewer to be present so as to collaboratively discuss how undoing can become monumental  if we are to consider the value of human and non-human materials or view trash as an extension of our neo-colonial capitalist systems of global trade.
