|10:00 AM - 10:00 PM ||Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)|
Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.
Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.
|10:00 AM ||Brantford: Our Immigrant Stories (Multi-Day Event)|
“Brantford: Our Immigrant Stories” is a Public History exhibit produced by the students of HI 323: Memory, Monuments, Museums at Laurier Brantford. The opening event will take place on April 4 from 2:30 to 4 pm in the RCW Lobby of Laurier Brantford Campus. The exhibit will be in two locations: one interactive exhibition (April 4 -18) in the RCW Lobby and one long-term exhibit at Brant Museum and Archives starting April 4.
The exhibits are based on an extensive archival research done by students on the history of early Brantford’s immigrant communities. While the city’s official history largely focuses on its industrial and military past as well as the accomplishments of select individuals like Alexander Graham Bell, this exhibit will promote diversity and inclusion, also to bring to light the marginalized and underrepresented groups in Brantford's past to the university and the city.
