Casting a line is a group exhibition bringing together Joi T. Arcand, Hassaan Ashraf and Annie Beach, Niamh Dooley, and Florence Yee, curated by Mariana Muñoz Gomez. The artists use language in their works as a tether through time, reimagining communication, power, healing and relation outside of imposed settler colonial structures. This exhibition was developed as Muñoz Gomez’s practicum project, as part of her Master’s in Cultural Studies: Curatorial Practices at the University of Winnipeg.

Performance by Hassaan Ashraf and Annie Beach: date TBD
