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: LISA MOORE

Ganong Hall Lecture Theatre, UNB Saint John Campus

Author Lisa Moore will read from Flannery as part of the Lorenzo Reading Series "Whispers at Dinner Parties."   Written in Lisa Moore’s exuberant and inimitable style, Flannery is by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, empowering and harrowing – often all on the same page.  It is a novel whose spell no reader will be able to resist.  Sixteen-year old Flannery Malone has it bad.  She’s been in love with Tyrone O’Rourke since the days she still believed in Santa Claus.  But Tyrone has grown from a dorky kid into an outlaw graffiti artist, the rebel-with-a-cause of Flannery’s dreams, literally too cool for school.  Open to the public.  Admission is free.

Johanne Poulin donne âme au papier essuie-tout en sculptures de blanc alors que Rhéal McIntyre y ajoute son pinceau, représentant des scènes des rives d’Escuminac. Cette exposition d’une quarantaine d’œuvres a été présentée pour la première fois en janvier 2016 au Musée acadien du Québec à Bonaventure. Gratuit.
