Bahar Taheri: Oneness

October 26th - December 2nd, 2023

Bahar Taheri approaches contemporary concerns through painting, video, and mixed-media installations. Through her practice, she has delved into aspects of gender, identity, collective memory, and historical events, the means through which our socio-political circumstances are shaped.

More recently, her work is subtly moving from figuration to geometric abstraction. In addition, Taheri has been deconstructing buildings; folding and unfolding monumental walls until binaries, absolutes and hierarchies dissolve into a reconstructed rupture from reality.

Her project, Oneness, depicts a utopian universe at the intersection of several countries, cultures, and beliefs.




David Stewart: Cuts from PoCo

September 7th - October 14th, 2023
David Stewart, Westminster After Three Fifteen, 2022

My painting practice has an ambivalent relationship with the history of Canadian landscape painting. I am interested in how romantic notions of nature that correspond with popular modernist Canadian painters often fall apart in a contemporary context.

I use photographs of my suburban hometown of Port Coquitlam as the basis for many of my paintings. While these photographs have a connection to my own history, they also connect to a larger history of Canada and the legacy of colonialism in our country.




Mindset: Selected Work by Dzʿ Visual Arts Graduates

July 3rd - August 21st, 2023
Zion Axell Favro, Bodies Transcending

Catalina Hernandez Camacho, Zion Axell Fabro, Leen Jaafar, Jona Loomis, Ximena Ribeiro Tamiez, and Alessandro Ruvo present works which evoke a mindset in diverse and playful ways.

These graduates of Dzʿ’s respected Visual Arts program are distinguished by having began their studies in a global pandemic. Most started their Dzʿ coursework under partial, or ‘hybrid’ presence in smaller groups courses such as printmaking and sculpture; the rest were carried out in confinement at home, with online lectures and meetings

This was reflected in the work presented in this year’s graduation—a turning of the mind inward, to issues surrounding the self and occasionally family, which leads to the title of this presentation, mindset.

Renee Condo: Shifting Perspectives

March 30th - May 6th, 2023
Renee Condo, MNTU series, 2021

My work explores a connecting thread between Mi’gmaw and Eurocentric worldviews, using a visual language that is both symbolic and literal. It is enriched by the history of the bead to carry knowledge, communicate, evoke, and express Spirit. I embrace the bead as infinite potentiality, appearing divided, as part, and at once whole and all-encompassing. (Renee Condo)

Renee Condo (b.1979) is a contemporary visual artist of Mi’gmaw ancestry from the community of Gesgapegiag, Quebec.

Untitled: Dzʿ Commercial Photography

December 19th, 2022 - January 10th, 2023

Untitled is a varied collection of images presented by the fall 2022 graduates of Dzʿ’s AEC Commercial Photography Program.

Seven students, including Fiona Campanelli, Valeria Cori-Manocchio, Surah Field-Green, Nicholas Gagnon, Molière Solon, Nadim Zakkour and Atena Zare, showcase their work in portraiture, fashion, product, sports photography and more. Their adventure at Dzʿ began in an unusual way–on a computer instead of in a classroom.

Pareidolia: Dzʿ Professional Photography

December 8th - 15th, 2022
Mateo Vega Cantu

Pareidolia is the ability to see or make pictures out of randomness.

Twenty two students are showing their work, including: Ayah Alatrash, Yisségnon-Chris Avosse, Sophie Becquet, Samuel Bermudez Fernandez, Lemuel Campbell, Mark Cedeno Moreno, Emma Cloghesy, Emma Diz-Giguère, Jilliane Flores, Jade Franco-Ehrmann, Alexe Grignard, Elizabeth Huppé, Sandra Kucko, Desireen Layne, Bramanda Mahaputra, Nour Naggar-Osama, Maya Naidu, Thibault Quach, Damon Roloff, Bianca Tedeschi, Mateo Vega Cantu, and Daphné Voisine.




Biennial 15

November 3rd - December 3rd, 2022
David Baumflek, Poor Relations, ceramic, 2002

Biennial 15 marks 30 years of Dzʿ Fine Arts Faculty members exhibiting their current art works at the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery. It continues this long tradition of investigating the relationship between art making and learning, as well as reflects on the history of the biennial.

All faculty—past and present—of the Fine Arts department will have images and texts in the catalogue which accompanies the exhibition. There will also be a sound component containing faculty’s responses to the question of how the biennial has played a role in the pedagogical innovations of Dzʿ’s reputed Fine Arts Department.




Anna Williams: An Unquiet Mythology

September 15th - October 22nd, 2022
Anna Williams, Remedy, 2017

The Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery is pleased to present the work of Ottawa-based artist Anna Williams. This is the first Montreal exhibition of Williams, who has created technically and conceptually complex prints and bronze sculptures which reinterpret female roles, gender conformity, and attitudes towards nature in classical Greek myths.

Born in Ottawa, Anna Williams studied sculpture and printmaking at Mount Allison University (Sackville, New Brunswick), before returning to Ottawa, where she continues to work, garden, and live with her wife, children, dogs and an excessive number of houseplants.
