WAG shines spotlight on women, violence

  • Print

THE violence experienced by women worldwide will be the focus of a new exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art, which opens Feb. 1 and runs until April 20, features the work of 30 international artists, including Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic, Mona Hatoum and Wangechi Mutu, among others. The exhibit includes artworks across mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, multimedia, video and installation.

The exhibition was curated by Randy Rosenberg, executive director and chief curator of Art Works for Change, an organization whose mission is to "harness the transformative power of art to promote awareness, provoke dialogue, and inspire action."

"Off the Beaten Path touches on a social issue -- violence against women -- that unfortunately is prevalent in Canada," said Helen Delacretaz, the gallery's chief curator. "It affects us all globally. Our exhibitions committee felt strongly that this was a show we wanted to see here in Winnipeg, to foster dialogue, to bring attention to an important issue and, hopefully, to enact social change."
