Digital Features

In this era of physical distance, the Artlab has established a Digital Features series to enhance its on-site programming. It is our hope that these features will expand on projects carried out by our students and faculty in useful ways, and broader their reach to virtual audiences.

Please email for additional details on this and any other programming. For updates on the evolving health and safety situation on Western campus please visit:

Eeva Siivonen - I left parts of myself everywhere
Sometimes in the night, the fox slips by

Sometimes in the nigh, the fox slips by

Studio PhD candidates from the Department of Visual Arts present Sometimes in the night, the fox slips by, a group exhibition of recent work by Anahí González, Philip Gurrey, Dong-Kyoon Nam and Sasha Opeiko. The show gathers a broad spectrum of investigations sharing a common interest in the relationship between poetic and theoretical potential in making. Some orient themselves toward the political, looking at labour issues both in Canada and abroad. Others probe the language of modernism with strategies centered on improvisation and decay. Others still, use a posthumanist perspective to deconstruct notions of the readymade or to renegotiate representations of melancholy. In concert they are the fox of John Burnside’s poem, deftly weaving a path through fence and thicket.
