Jayce Salloum: history of the present


A mid-career survey of this acclaimed Canadian artist’s photo- and video-based installations, the exhibition explores identity, migration, and shifting global territories. Curated by Jen Budney, the exhibition is a co-production of the Mendel Art Gallery, the Kamloops Art Gallery and the Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown, PEI. Vancouver-based Salloum, whose grandparents emigrated from Lebanon to rural Saskatchewan in the 1930s, has exhibited his work extensively internationally for more than 20 years. His vast archive of photos, documents and souvenirs offers open-ended narratives and celebrates ephemeral beauty.
