Arts Encounters on the Edge

Bonavista Biennale 2017

Curated by
Catherine Beaudette & Patricia Grattan
works in progress

Curators Catherine Beaudette and Patricia Grattan bring together works by 25 leading Newfoundland and other Canadian artists for Canada’s 150th anniversary. Presented in non-gallery sites (micro-brewery, fishstore, old schoolhouse, seal plant, beach, etc) the Biennale promises a unique encounter with this spectacular area where history and traditional culture combine with art by both newer and established artists: Catherine Blackburn,  Marlene Creates, John Hartman, Iris Hauessler, Dil Hildebrand, Ned Pratt, Reinhard Reitzenstein and more.

About "Dust at Dawn"

Large collages show stripes aligned underneath each other, visually evoking lines on ruled paper. The stripes consist of tape mounted from behind on the mylar and showing through. The tape holds dust collected from cracks and door- and window-frames, lint from carpets, dead flies from the floors of dwellings in the area.
