The exhibition Going To, Making Do, Passing Just the Same by artists Edith Brunette and François Lemieux is not currently accessible to the public but the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery invites you to participate in two related events.

Following November 8’s discussion on environmental racism and population displacements, you’re invited to view Edith Brunette and François Lemieux’s video Vases communicants, available until the November 29.

Through gestures, a landscape emerges, cobbled together and in motion. It testifies of a world crisscrossed by infrastructures that organize and cut — borders, pipelines, surveillance networks — yet also one striated by movements that evade capture — fugitive migrations, occupations, fatigue, accidents, leaks, rest. Movements of beings, things and restless materials, that leave traces and invite further breaks.
