  • Nelly César

    Artist

    Nelly César (Mexican, b. 1986) is an interdisciplinary artist exploring sculpture, installation and drawing in connection to performance. Her multifaceted experimental projects work to propose alternative ways of experiencing art, and to build stronger and more diverse artistic communities.

César’s commitment to constructing alternatives to institutional traditions is central to her work as the creative director and co-founder of Pandeo, an independent cultural centre in Mexico City. Pandeo creates new ways of thinking about public space and feminist practices, focusing on the interpersonal and affective interactions between the arts, audiences and creators. César is also a founding member of Prras!, an art and editorial project engaging with issues of labour, economy and professionalization for women in the arts.Her work has been shown in Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Hungary, France and the US, and is included in the Museo de Mujeres Artistas Mexicana and in Archiva: Masterpieces of Mexican Feminist Art by Mónica Mayer.

  • Genevieve Robertson

    Artist

    Genevieve Robertson (Canadian, b. 1984) is an interdisciplinary artist with a background in environmental studies. Her drawings are often comprised of found organic materials collected on-site, and map a visceral and long-term engagement with specific regions. Through recent research in the Kootenays, the Salish Sea and the Fraser and Columbia rivers, she has engaged with the complexities that emerge when relating to land and water in a time of large-scale industrial exploitation and climate precarity. Her process-based studio work is rooted in inquisitive conversation, long-term place-based exploration and being out on the shoreline. Robertson has shown at venues including at the Libby Leshgold Gallery at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, the Pensacola Museum (Florida), Touchstones Museum (Nelson), Or Gallery (Vancouver), the New Gallery (Calgary) and Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre. She holds an MFA from Emily Carr University (2016) and a BFA from NSCAD University (2009).
