EXHIBITION: SUZANNE HILL: SINGULAR

New Brunswick Museum, Market Square.

Until 16 April 2017: Produced by the New Brunswick Museum, the exhibition includes mixed media works and installations.  Through the artwork, Hill presents a thought-provoking interpretation of the singularity of the life of human beings.  At the same time, the exhibition is complemented by responses from contemporary literature and dance, highlighting the interconnectivity of cultural forms, in art and everyday life.  Five installations, like the fingers on a single hand, express Suzanne Hill’s exploration of the idea of existing apart from others.  “We are all islands” is the premise around which Suzanne Hill centres her most recent body of work, Singular.

LORENZO READING SERIES: MEAGS FITZGERALD

Ganong Hall Lecture Theatre, UNB Saint John campus

Author Meags Fitzgerald will read from "Phonebooth: A Biography" as part of the Lorenzo Reading Series "Whispers at Dinner Parties."  For almost a century chemical photobooths have occupied public spaces, giving people the opportunity to quickly take inexpensive, quality photos.  In the last decade these machines have started to rapidly disappear, causing an eclectic group of individuals from around the world to come together and respond.   Illustrator, writer and long-time photobooth lover, Meags Fitzgerald has chronicled the photobooth’s fortuitous history and the events that gave rise to the desperate need to save them.  In this groundbreaking book Fitzgerald struggles with her own relationship to these fleeting machines, while looking to the future.  Open to the public.  Admission is free.
