Embodied Ecologies

Marsha Kennedy

Curated and circulated by the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery

April 8 – May 20, 2022

Embodied Ecologies presents a retrospective survey of the compelling, poetic, political and hauntingly beautiful work of Saskatchewan artist, Marsha Kennedy.  This exhibition explores the conceptual basis and evolution of Kennedy’s art practice through multiple       bodies of work that engage in concepts pertaining to the body, motherhood, feminism, spirituality, nature, ecology, environmental sustainability, and colonial impacts on the land, spanning the course of Kennedy’s impressive and prolific four decade career. Kennedy’s work has consistently engaged in exploring the complex, interconnected relationships between humans and nature and the issues that ensue when this connection is broken and disregarded. While she has worked with various subject matter and media, with different modes of presentation, and conceptually addressed a range of social, political and environmental issues in her ever-evolving practice, essentially Kennedy has remained true to an overarching, thematic vision and belief in the embodiment of flesh, the intelligence of the natural world and the interconnectedness of all lifeforms.

This exhibition brings together works in printmaking, painting, mixed media, installation and sculpture to present a richly layered picture of the diversity and yet unifying conceptual threads of Kennedy’s practice, highlighting the contributions of her work towards contemporary painting and feminist and environmental art in Canada, as well as reflecting on her impact on the broader arts community. Having taught in the visual arts, first in Ontario and then at the University of Regina for two and a half decades, while also serving as a mentor to emerging artists, she has influenced generations of artists and has contributed a strong and unique voice within Canadian contemporary art.

Submissions

Submission Procedures

The EAGM welcomes proposals from artists and curators in all media for exhibitions or special projects for 2020 and onward. The gallery presents a diverse program of exhibitions, lectures and meetings with artists, and is involved in the production of curated exhibitions connected to themes developed by the EAGM. Together, the programs propose a critical reflection on contemporary art and culture. The gallery offers three exhibition spaces for artist proposals, and welcomes submissions from curators and artists on an ongoing basis.

​The gallery has two exhibition spaces (Gallery I and Gallery II). The EAGM provides professional technical services for selected projects. The EAGM pays fees to artists and curators in accordance with CARFAC standards. Submitted projects are assessed and recommended for program inclusion by the curator. Please note that unless requested, we do not notify artists when a proposal has been received, and it can take some time for a decision to be made. Artists are always notified as to whether their submission has been selected for exhibition. Please note that our schedule is currently full for the near future, although we are happy to receive proposals to keep on file for future consideration.
