The Rest and the Void
postponed until October 2021
The dates of the exhibition will change according to the sanitary measures.
The Rest and the Void is an immersive installation by Christeen Francis composed of large scale black and white woodcuts that reflect the changing city environment; disjointed, fragmented, and under construction. The exhibition attempts to reveal the fragility of the things we assume to be permanent by demonstrating; that the future of our cities is more vulnerable than we think, and that the places we call home are increasingly under threat.
Christeen Francis completed her BFA at NSCADU, spent nine years in New York City, and returned to her hometown of Montreal to complete her MFA at Concordia University. A printmaker and musician, she ran a print shop in Brooklyn and played in several bands. She is committed to social and political print that engages with local communities and the public at large. She has exhibited in Canada, the United States, Germany, and Iceland and is a member of the Justseeds Artist Cooperative. Her research interests include the right to the city, urban wildlife and wild spaces, and the homogenization of cities and culture.
