Revolution or Reinventing the Wheel
Alongside Dalhousie Art Gallery’s exhibition "Why are we saving All these artist publications + Other Galleries stuffs?" Becky Welter-Nolan digs into Eyelevel Gallery’s archives to find patterns in the gallery’s programming and conversations. By revisiting and recreating these repetitions, Welter-Nolan asks if the artist-run centre is evolving or revolving. Welter-Nolan’s month-long project begins with an installation that invites viewers to rest, soothed by a soundscape of board conversations about the many displacements of Eyelevel Gallery. The project will build over the course of the exhibition period to include artworks, performances, and conversations that echo throughout the gallery’s archives.
