2ND Annual Art Show in recognition of International Women’s Day
JANUARY 14 TO MARCH 18, 2023
In partnership with Arts Society King (ASK), the King Heritage & Cultural Centre (KHCC) is pleased to present STEREOTYPE SMASH, the 2ND Annual Art Show in recognition of International Women’s Day.
Some images and societal beliefs (regarding gender roles and equality, ideal bodies, sexuality and aging, for example) have outlasted their usefulness, are dated, inappropriate or are just plain untrue. Artists were challenged to take a stereotype and reinterpret it - re-create, re-imagine, re-contextualize…smash it! Artists have used both the artwork and stories to interpret the theme.
Through the use of primary documents, original photographs and authentic artifacts, A Place to Call Home examines the history and heritage of King Township, on land originally occupied by Indigenous Peoples, up to the present day.
This long-term display hosts thematic pop-up exhibits throughout the year. The exhibition is located in the Walter Rolling Schoolhouse Gallery, formerly the Kinghorn one-room schoolhouse, S.S. #23, circa 1861.
Please note that due to renovations to make the KHCC more accessible, this exhibit is temporarily closed. Thank you for your patience.
These exhibits are coming soon to the King Heritage & Cultural Centre. Mark your calendars!
