“Do-Over” is a multi-disciplinary exhibition that brings together video, performance, and interdisciplinary artists working with notions of appropriation, citational practices, re-performance, and derivatives. International in scope, the selected participants approach art histories, popular culture, and new forms of media with pointed criticism, humour, and borderline obsession. The works engage with the many ways artists transform past and present archives, addressing power inequalities through incisive aesthetic gestures. The artists featured include Allana Clarke, Carrie Fonder, Steve Giasson, Myriam Jacob-Allard, Julie Lequin, Kelly Lloyd, and Nathaniel Wong.
Exhibition organized by Chalet Comellas Baker, Arièle Dionne-Krosnick, Didier Morelli, and Clinton Sleeper.
