May 16 – 27, 2018
One hundred years ago, on May 24, 1918 – at the very same time as this exhibition – women in Canada were granted the right to vote in Federal Elections.
This was a giant step in Waking the Dream to equality between women and men in Canada. Over time, there have been many ups and downs. In recent years, we are seeing a resurgence in the Women’s Movement, and indeed in many movements seeking social justice – the LGBTQ Movement, Indigenous Rights, Black Lives Matter, and Environmental Justice! And MeToo!!
Artists often see it as their place to provoke, to voice, to enlighten. This long-standing role of the Artist is at the heart of “Waking the Dream”. In this exhibition, various Propeller members seek to explore this idea of a dream-state and how that translates into reality through progress.
