New Positions: Alexis Bulman, Andrew Cairns, Monica Lacey, Alexandra O’Sullivan
Ranging from photography to painting, video to installations, the New Positions catalogue features a selection of recent work by four young Prince Edward Island artists who represent a cross-section of developing local practices. Click Here

Jayce Salloum: history of the present
A mid-career survey of this acclaimed Canadian artist’s photo- and video-based installations, the exhibition catalogue explores identity, migration, and shifting global territories.

Allan Harding MacKay: Observing the Observer
The catalogue highlights the four-decades-long career of a P.E.I.-born artist who continues to make significant contributions to Canadian culture. MacKay’s career is marked by a consistent commitment to critical observation, and his focus has ranged from deeply personal portraits to difficult public engagements in the war-torn states of Somalia and Afghanistan. In his blending of 1960s conceptual practice, and a traditional, tactile studio approach, MacKay conveys an intellectually rigorous yet passionately felt understanding of the complex dynamics of the intimate, the social and the political.

His 2008 exhibition at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery featured work drawn from key periods in his life and over the past twenty years. The pdf catalogue includes an essay by guest curator Andrew Hunter, an interview-dialogue between MacKay and Calgary artist John Will, and reflections from the artist’s daughter, Simone Esther MacKay.
