COOPER COLE is pleased to present Separate/Together, a group exhibition of Canadian and international artists Gaëlle Choisne, Sharona Franklin, ektor garcia, Maureen Gruben, Raven Halfmoon, Gabrielle L’Hirondelle Hill, Jennie Jieun Lee, Brie Ruais, Fin Simonetti, Eve Tagny, and Sami Tsang.
Separate/Together celebrates materiality. Materials are imbued with cultural narratives, and the artists included in this exhibition think deeply about diverse media, and the conditions they emerge from. Questioning how sculptural work can be utilized for political means, represent politicized identities, have activist potentials, and more, Separate/Together presents multiple critical dialogues that reflect on how material culture and our lived experiences are intertwined.
This exhibition coincides with Cooper Cole’s ten year anniversary. Presenting emerging, mid career, domestic and international artists, this exhibition reflects the continuing ethos of the gallery to embrace experimental artistic production and support artists at varied stages of their careers.
