We are delighted to present the solo exhibition Class, by Winnipeg artist Karen Asher. Opening Friday, April 26, 2019, Class will see Asher for the first time extending her established photographic practice into the broader realm of installation. The exhibition will feature a ninety-minute video of music, dance and visual effects. The video installation here reflects her photographic practice where she slowly engages her subjects mostly friends and family in a set of scenarios that boarder on highly composed to happenstance.
The exhibition will also include collections of photographs from a number earlier works as well as kitsch-y gaudy set props that likely could have lived in her previous photo works. All these bits and pieces are an amalgamation Asher’s past work, which tangles together to form a sort of coming-of-age story.
