Fossilized Sunshine Exhibit at the VAC Clarington
August 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until September 23, 2021
Fossilized Sunshine brings together the work of 7 artists who explore the relationship between cultural archeology and decolonial future building. Through the exploration of different “counter futurisms” including Afghan, Palestinian, Indigenous, and Afro-Futurism, each project employs polyphonic communities’ artefacts and their respective cultural histories as the building blocks to imagine diverse fictional realities divorced from Eurocentric subjugation. Conflating past, present, and future, the artists include a range of archaeological materials as catalysts to (re)invent diverging future realities severed from Western hegemony. The featured artists include Camille Turner and Camal Pirbhai, Shaheer Zazai, Larissa Sansour, Lisa Jackson, Wally Dion and Timothy Yanick Hunter.
