Bryan Belanger
Make Your Bed
Front Lawn, Installation
We have heard the expression “You’ve made your bed, now lie in it.” As far as we know we didn’t ask to be born yet we’re forced to make our bed repeatedly, figuring out how to learn from our mistakes in order to survive. Yet we all know that one day we’re going have to lie in it, our final resting place, a bed of soil, so that our energy can be recycled into new life.

Studio 109, Sound Installation
There’s an entryway of black curtains. Inside, it’s too dark to be seen, but the walls are covered in sound machines of various shapes and sizes, creating a wash of only one of the senses—exclusively sound.



Juliana Neufeld
Creatures of Memory
First Floor lounge, Sculpture
At our core, we are all strange and compelling creatures of memory, imprinted by a complex set of emotional narratives that shape how we see the world.

Joy Broadbent
Hallway Galleries, second floor exhibition
This collection of paintings is an exploration of still-life and figures. It pairs flat, soothing colours with luminescent highlights, creating erased, sculptural forms. The paintings are layered with paint in order to both uncover and shelter objects and images.
