Current Exhibition

Louie Fermor, Pulp

September 1 – October 14, 2023

For Pulp, Fermor uses re-creation as reclamation. Fermor has scaled-up sensational book covers from the 1950-60s Golden Age of lesbian pulp fiction to “life-size” and inserted themselves into the images, using paint and drag to costume themselves as each character. Pulp wrestles the cover’s cis-normative depictions of queer people back from their original creators and laughs: look who’s the pervert now.

The creation of the works in this exhibition were supported by Canada Council for the Arts and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

Louie Fermor (they/them)

Since graduating from the Alberta University of the Arts in 2016, Fermor has been a resident with the New York University Summer Studio program, Momus Emerging Critics Residency, and the Calgary Allied Arts Foundation, and are currently participating in the Artist as Changemaker program, via Mount Royal University. They have been a finalist for the RBC Painting Competition, a runner-up for the Canadian Art Writing Prize, and a winner of the M:ST and Luma Quarterly Critical Writing Prize and several grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and Alberta Foundation for the Arts. In 2023, they will be participating in the Action on Ableism project with the John Humphrey Centre for Human Rights and attending the Feminist Art Collective residency at Artscape Gibraltar. They have exhibited and published their art and writing in Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, and New York. Much of Fermor’s work describes time spent alone— either in solitude or by generational marginalization. Through themes of archetype, history, liberation, activism, queerness, and disability, they explore portraiture and storytelling, including both the stories we’ve committed to the pages of history and the stories we tell ourselves.

Upcoming Exhibitions

Spirit Song has now grown into a multi-day event which boasts world class performances, traditional and contemporary knowledge sharing events as well as artist in residence series.  The festival is enjoyed by Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences alike.
