We’re tooting our own horn in this one…well one of our staff that is.
An exhibition curated by KW|AG’s very own Barbara Hobot was featured in the academic journal Senses and Society.
“It’s exciting to see an interest in my project so long after the exhibition closed,” says Barbara, KW|AG’s Curatorial Assistant. “It’s rewarding when a show can reach past its enclosing walls and can incite further discussion beyond its timeframe.”
Before working at KW|AG, Barbara was the Curator-in-Residence at RENDER, University of Waterloo where she had the opportunity to develop an exhibition titled, Break It Down. The exhibition was on view from February 24 to March 21, 2009 and brought together five videos that used music and dance as a way to critique notions of celebrity and the influence of pop-culture on self-identity.
The Senses and Society essay featuring Break It Down was written by critic, curator and Associate Professor at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD), Jim Drobnick. Break It Down is one of seven Canadian and international exhibitions mentioned in the journal which relate to the topic of dance and visual art.
