CORRECTION: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21ST, AT 7:00 P.M. OPENING RECEPTION: Three new shows opening.
Come to the Rooms for a reception celebrating their newest and upcoming art installations. Free to attend; all are welcome.

NED PRATT: ONE WAVE
September 22nd, 2018 – January 20th, 2019
A ten-year retrospective of Ned Pratt’s large-scale photographic works. Pratt’s respect for the landscape of the island of Newfoundland is the foundation for his work. His formal approach consciously undermines compositional rules to produce sophisticated and unique imagery. His approach to the act of looking transcends place, however, installing him as a significant new voice in Canadian art. With accompanying catalogue, to be released November 2018, and a national tour into 2021.

EMILY PITTMAN: UNSETTLED
Elbow Room Residency Series
September 22nd, 2018 – January 20th, 2019
With this new body of work, Pittman has created abstract versions of the essential building blocks of community. A wall drawing and colourful forms suspended in space suggest churches, houses, lighthouses and other historic buildings. Pittman explores how concepts of community and home are carried with us. Communities are much more than a collection structures – their significance comes from our associations and connections to the people within. This work was developed during an Elbow Room Residency, a Rooms Provincial Art Gallery program that provides Newfoundland and Labrador artists at the beginning of their careers with the opportunity to work in a dedicated studio for three months towards an exhibition and publication.

MICHAEL SNOW: NEWFOUNDLANDINGS
October 6th – December 30th, 2018
Curated by Scott McLeod and circulated by Prefix ICA, this exhibition brings together four video installations by Michael Snow, one of Canada’s most revered artists. As the exhibition title suggests, each of the presented works was produced on the west coast of Newfoundland, where the artist and his partner spend their summers among its cliffs, fields and coves. Unified by the omnipresence of the wind, the works also illustrate a number of Snow’s enduring preoccupations — sound, duration, and wordplay, as well as the nature of the frame, the camera, and the photographic act itself.
