New exhibition explores the interplay between dreams and reality
The mind-bending, untamed, and abstract world of dreams will come to life when Dream Marrow, the newest exhibition at the Burnaby Art Gallery opens on November 10.
Dream Marrow invites us to consider dreams and storytelling as collective endeavors with the power to connect, liberate and subvert. Hana Amani and Audie Murray, two contemporary artists working across mediums, chart collective futures brought into being through expansive cosmologies.
Dreaming, and other visionary acts, offer resistance to various forms of oppression, dispossession and rule. Some of our oldest and most widely read tales, such as The Thousand and One Nights, grew from the dreams of women resisting violence, and have since shaped political and social realities time and time again.
The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred a wide public interest in dreaming, with many individuals having reported the most vivid dreams they had ever experienced. Often attributed to the intense isolation and uncertainty-induced anxiety, dreams were both symptom and antidote for a sense of loss of future.
Dream Marrow welcomes you to the twilight hours and the resistance that charts its path across the starry sky.
Please join us for an opening reception Thursday, November 10, 7-9 pm. Artist Hana Amani will be in attendance and a cash bar will be available.
November 12 (Saturday) 10:00 am - December 23 (Friday) 5:00 pm
