Timothy Long - Head Curator, Mackenzie Art Gallery: "Beyond the Stone Angel is an exhibition of deep personal significance to me, as it grew out of the loss of both my parents in a short span in 2015-2016. As I was processing that loss, I became aware of a surprising range of artworks addressing this subject, including a handful of works already in the MacKenzie's collection. The resulting exhibition of twelve artists is a poetic exploration that provides an entrance point to the grief that has affected so many of us, especially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic."

New Dance Horizons (NDH) LOVE + LOSS Series opens a window on liminal spaces exploring ideas, stories and resonances of love & loss, through live performance featuring dance, visual art, theatre, performance art, sound artists from across the country.
