Kim Dorland on I ♥ Paint 3:
"I’m not a curator. I’m not a taste maker or a gallery professional. I’m a painter. And I ️ paint. I love looking at paintings. I love thinking about paintings. I love the act of squeezing a brand new tube of paint. Painting is romantic. Painting is sexy. Painting is infuriating, but I can’t give it up.
When I did the first I ️ Paint shows it was a reaction to this boring, cyclical idea that “painting is dead”. I’m happy to report that that idea is now dead (at least for now). A quick scan through Instagram is proof that painting is alive and well (especially reassuring to this middle-ager is the amount of young artists picking up the mantle).
There’s good painting being made all over the place these days, and thanks to Instagram and such we have access - which is how I “curated” this show. This isn’t proof of what’s “on trend” right now. You’re not going to get a dense or complicated thesis. This is a show about using paint. About the talented ways that some artists are exploiting paint’s possibilities - materially, thematically, stylistically... At the end of the day, I just wanted to put together a really good painting exhibition."
Kim Dorland pushes the boundaries of painted representation through an exploration of memory, material, nostalgia, identity and place. Born in 1974 in Wainwright, Alberta, Dorland holds an MFA from York University in Toronto, and a BFA from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, in Vancouver. He has exhibited globally, including shows in Milan, London, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. His work is featured in the Contemporary Art Foundation (Japan), The Sander Collection (Berlin); Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal; Musée d’art contemporain de Montreal; Glenbow Museum (Calgary); Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Art Gallery of Alberta, the Audain Art Museum and numerous important private collections. Dorland currently lives and works in Vancouver.

Public Volumes gestures towards broad interpretations of spatial justice, a concept that acknowledges the connection between space and justice as integral to understanding how we arrive at our relationships. Bringing together exhibitions, public programming and writing, the many projects within Public Volumes focus in or out from a particular location or series of locations, fostering deeper insight into why space matters. From thinking through ideas around memory and ways of living to community mobilization and immigration, Public Volumes espouses the multiple meanings folded into the spaces of everyday life and those of unexpected circumstance. This program looks to the tangled means by which we defend the spaces that offer support and the efforts we take to transform those that fail.
Taking place over three sites within Mississauga and featuring collaborations with Koffler.Digital and independent curator Anu Radha Verma, Public Volumes features existing and newly commissioned work from artists working across a range of media

Pio Abad: Splendour
Exhibition Dates: 31 March – 2 June 2019
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens
In Pio Abad’s Splendour, the London, UK-based artist brings together objects and images that draw connections between specific moments of political and economic upheaval, from the fall of Cold War era dictatorships that erroneously heralded ‘the end of history’ to the economic crises of 2008 that brought us to our current age of political disenchantment. Lifting its title from an Abi Morgan play, which takes place in the drawing room of an unnamed autocracy on the eve of its collapse, the exhibition imagines Gairloch Gardens as the domestic setting of another scene of political devolution and decay. Splendour reflects on the roles of repetition and mistranslation in our understanding of history and asks how we might meaningfully go forward at this moment of worldwide political unease.

Rebecca Brewer & Rochelle Goldberg: Waves and Waves
Exhibition Dates: 31 March – 2 June 2019
Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square
Longtime friends and occasional collaborators, New York-based artist Rochelle Goldberg and Vancouver-based artist Rebecca Brewer have been engaged in a dialogue about their respective practices for years. This exhibition emerges from that conversation, with their distinct ideas unfolding materially in a shared space for the first time. The project sees both artists explore forms that allude to the relationship between human life and the natural world: Brewer's recent textile works recall dream-like perceptions—seen here alongside new paintings that stem from an early memory of being carried out to sea on a wave—whereas Goldberg's sculptural works evoke material transitions, tactility and the traces that contact leaves on human bodies and other living beings.
