New Positions: Alexis Bulman, Andrew Cairns, Monica Lacey, Alexandra O’Sullivan
A selection of recent work by four young Prince Edward Island artists who represent a cross-section of developing local practices.
This exhibition presents recent work by a group of promising Prince Edward Island artists at an early stage of their careers. Following a year of studio visits and interviews with over a dozen local visual artists, four were selected to represent a wide range of interests and ways of working. Ranging from photography to painting, video to installations, New Positions showcases the continual renewal of an inventive and challenging cultural scene. Despite the broad scope of the show, relationships between the work chosen reveal a set of preoccupations that together suggest a shared interest in the status of the individual body in culturally-determined space and the function of art and its visual rhetoric in everyday life.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
