Where

Feature Gallery

Unfolding throughout the evening, the opening begins with an illustrated artist talk by Evgenia Mikhaylova, whose work in installation, video, sound, drawing and performance examines the complexities of perception. She will be joined in conversation by Troy Gronsdahl, Curator Performance & Public Practice.

Brendan Fernandes will introduce his work Contract and Release, enacted by local dancers Lindsay Harpham, Mitchell Larsen and Marcus Merasty.

The evening concludes with several short works performed by pianist Sofia Mycyk, including an interpretation of Rodney Graham’s The School of Velocity, a work from Remai Modern’s collection being performed in Saskatoon for the first time. In the piece, Graham brings together the piano exercise of the same name with Galileo’s equation of the acceleration of falling objects.

A cash bar will be available along with refreshments. Admission is by donation; free entry for members and youth.

About the Artists

Evgenia Mikhaylova is a Russian/Canadian artist based between Guelph and Saskatoon. Working in installation, video, sound, drawing, and performance, she examines the complexities of perception, communication systems, and language.

Brendan Fernandes is an artist who examines issues of cultural displacement, migration, labour and queer subjectivity through installation, video, sculpture and dance. Contract and Release is choreography for a series of performance sculptures where the laborious act of stillness may suggest a form of political resistance.

Linsday Harpham is a professional contemporary dancer, dance educator and choreographer. Following her post-secondary studies, she participated in professional dance tours throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia.

Mitchell Larsen is a genderfluid artist whose practice incorporates music, theatre and dance with fabulist fiction, queer history, and poetry.

Marcus Merasty is a Nehiyaw/Woodlands Cree dance artist from Pelican Narrows, Saskatchewan. His dance journey began with learning Métis jigging and square-dancing and continued under the mentorship of Robin Poitras & Edward Poitras. In 2021, Marcus graduated from The Professional Program of The School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Sofia Mycyk earned her Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance degree from the University of Minnesota and has performed as a soloist with orchestras in Canada and the United States, most recently with the Stratford Symphony Orchestra, ON. She lives and works in Saskatoon.
