We Could Go Anywhere, Anywhere But Here [Centre 3]

Stephanie Vegh: We Could Go Anywhere, Anywhere But Here

The disappearance of honeybees from our contemporary ecosystem poses a quiet threat to human sustainability on earth and has been a preoccupation of Stephanie Vegh’s studio practice for the past four years.  Centre[3]’s Members’ Gallery offers an ideal setting for this experiment as a white cube of modest scale that will allow the hive to disperse from a concentrated cluster in one of the gallery’s corners. Stephanie is interested in exploring the contrasting effects of the installation as experienced inside the gallery versus its viewing experience on the street whereby the gallery takes on the appearance of a vitrine preserving this threatened species as a zoological display.

Connecting through the arts has the power to transform communities.  As a not-for-profit centre we’ve established programming to help bring arts education and community arts to the greater Hamilton area.  Thanks to donor support our programming is always expanding to meet the needs of the region.  We welcome you to get involved!  Become a member, take a workshop, visit our gallery, or support our fundraising programs. Centre[3] for Print and Media Arts is an artist-run centre dedicated to promoting print and media arts in contemporary artistic discourse. As a production, exhibition, education centre and animator of community arts, Centre[3] supports both traditional and experimental print media and media art practices. The centre encourages research and innovation and provides forums for discussion and examination of critical and theoretical issues. Centre[3] supports artists in the development of their professional endeavours and acts as a resource centre for the visual and media arts community.

Mysterium Tremendum [Workers Arts and Heritage Centre]

Mysterium Tremendum is  a series of playful prophecies which end up looking more like proposals, which in turn attempt to move us towards transformative justice in Hamilton and beyond

Artist, organizer and priestess-in-training Radiodress continues her exploration of the sacred geometrical form of the Merkabah through activating a series of modular stages at WAHC. Working with recorded sound, live performance, collage and architectural renderings, Radiodress unfolds this mysterious shape whose cultural locations run a rich gamut from Kabbalistic visions to Afrofuturist cosmology. Working with local organizers, feminists, musicians and social critics, Radiodress asks how the Merkabah might speak to transformative justice, offering a collective movement towards shared consciousness and reverential dissensus. She presents a series of performances and events on her Merkabah stages throughout the summer in the gallery, on the local airwaves and in WAHC’s outdoor spaces. Mysterium Tremedum has been developed in collaboration with Caitlin Craven and Meaghan Ross as well as various local feminist activists and organizers.

Performances/Events on the Merkabah Stages

Friday, June 12, 6 – 8 pm: Originally built as a group project by artist Vjane Gordon and a local group of immigrant woman, this event will re-activate WAHC’s outdoor labyrinth through stories by local feminist organizers about their challenges as women in social movements.

Thursday, July 16, 7 – 10 pm: In the gallery space, Radiodress will be live broadcasting her monthly radio show, Republic of Love.

Saturday, August 22, 1 – 4 pm: Join Radiodress and Syracuse art/rock/noise/punk/riot grrrl/jamboree/feminist band Malvinas (Syracuse, NY) for a bring-your-own-Uke singalong of songs by legendary workers’ songwriter and ally, Malvina Reynolds.
We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council in making this possible.

Broken Simulacrum [Centre 3]

Amy McIntosh and Andrew O'Connor: Broken Simulacrum

Curated By: Jim Riley

This project, on which Amy McIntosh and Andrew O'Connor have collaborated, brings an intimate, interactive New Media installation to viewers. The installation includes a hallway within the exhibition space, extending to a single video screen. The viewers experience different videos that are representational of a familiar type of passageway.

When a single participant enters the space, their movement is tracked by proximity sensors. The participant discovers their movement forwards and backwards in the corridor impacts the image in front of them. The viewer then exits through a different opening,. As the participants manipulate their experience of the installation, an illusion of control is created

Continental Drift [Centre 3]

Andrea Kita: Continental Drift

Andrea Kita shares her photographs to convey a sense of place and inspire contemplation about the seven continents represented in her work. This collection of photographs provides a glimpse of the diversity both across and within the continents.  From dynamic urban environments to forgotten places, pristine natural landscapes to monuments of history and culture, there remain echoes of Pangea; reminders of the common roots of the land and our shared heritage of humanity. With every photograph, Andrea tries to capture the essence, or “somewhereness”, of each unique place and experience. Andrea works primarily with black and white photographs using both traditional hand printing and digital printing techniques.

Ephemeral Hues [Centre 3]

Callie Archer: Ephemeral Hues

The mood, colour, texture, contrast and values of life impact how Callie Archer interprets art. Abstract impressionism  embodies some of her work. Callie’s encaustic mono prints have been well-received. She thrives on playing in different mediums from day to day. The challenges of working with encaustic involve hot beeswax, medium and the richness oils render. While Callie also enjoys working in other media, her favourite medium is encaustic partly because of the joy of experimenting and its lack of predictability.
