Forever in Flux resonates 

The NSCAD Feminist collective remembers the Montreal Massacre with messages in many mediums.

  • Dorota Forfa's breaking free/holding still .

The Montreal Massacre of 1989 still matters, and NSCAD's Feminist Collective is once again remembering the brutal incident with their group exhibition, showcasing incredibly varied works from female artists and allies. This year's collection of works will put your brain in overdrive, in the best possible way. Ashley Bedet's Sexy Socks is 13 minutes of video that playfully reverses gender objectification; Dorota Forfa's breaking free/holding still sees a stack of plates smashed to smithereens and then hot glue-gunned back together; Kathleen Lefevre's mixed media Timeline of Events Leading Up To and Including An Eating Disorder will stop you dead in your tracks and Elise Boudreau gives Beyoncé a run for her piles of cash. And that's not even scratching the surface. See for yourself until Saturday, or stop by for an artists' talk Thursday at noon.

To Dec 10, Anna Leonowens Gallery, 1891 Granville Street
