A Nipissing Region/GTA Exchange Project in collaboration with the International Broken Forests Group

Exhibition: August 3 to 21, 2022

Presentations & Performance: Monday, August 15, 7 to 10 pm
featuring a performance by Neryth Yamile Manrique (Colombia) & Cecilia Stelini (Brazil)  
& Conversations and presentations by the Broken Forests Group & Old Growth exhibiting artists

Old Growth Resurrection, Regeneration, Intervention Exhibition:

From August 3 – 21, 2022, the Old Growth Resurrection, Regeneration, Intervention exhibition will be held at Propeller Art Gallery. It focuses on reconnecting artists and arts audiences to Old Growth trees and their habitats across the province. 

The Gallery component of the project includes the presentation of 39 artists, working in many different mediums, who have created new artworks that resurrect our personal connections to wild forests, regenerate interest in the well-being of the forests, honour the people who have devoted their lives to saving these old trees and intervene or record interventions that focus public attention upon issues of concern to environmentalists. The exhibition includes both Invited artists from the Broken Forests Group and artists chosen from an Open Call for Submissions to the project. 

Presentations & Performance: Monday, August 15th, 7 – 10 pm

At the Broken Forests event on Monday, August 15th Neryth Yamile Manrique from Colombia and Cecilia Stelini from Brazil will make a performance act entitled “Union”. The artists, using threads of colour red and burgundy, will unite the members of the Broken Forests Group. This symbolic act will represent gathering, togetherness and relation to continue on the journey. 

The project is designed to impact our forests and relatively unknown wilderness areas by focusing public attention on their present states, especially the Old Growth forests that are under threat from various human forces/activities. The hope is that this art project can direct our gaze upon forests in 2022 and encourage dialogues and actions around increasing biodiversity in these wild areas, protecting remaining stands of old growth, and retaining our spiritual connections to these special places and beings.
