SJIMA Presents, Stuff: We Become Our Things A Retrospective
A new exhibit, Stuff: We Become Our Things: A Retrospective opens Saturday, September 15 at the San Juan Island Museum of Art. The exhibit is part of The Female Gaze, Part 3, The Woman as a Visionary and Creator and will be showing until November 26.
Award-winning artist Nicola Wheston unveils a new installation that takes us from shopping at big box stores to witnessing empty plastic jugs, styrofoam containers and assorted trash ending up at the landfill.
Stuff: We Become Our Things: A Retrospective draws attention to the mounting issue of garbage and explores Wheston’s own relationship with trash.
Wheston is available to talk trash, and the very personal reasons behind her desire to illustrate the rapid rise of consumerism in the era of plastics and how the system is showing its cracks.
This award winning artist is represented by the Duthie Gallery, Salt Spring Island and by the Ian Tan Gallery in Vancouver.
