Susan Low-Beer
Reception & Artist Talk


Sunday, August 20 at 2:00pm


Join us in welcoming Susan Low-Beer on Sunday, August 20 for the opening reception of Embodiment: 30 Year of Sculpture by Susan Low Beer. Low-Beer will conduct a tour of the exhibition, sharing insight into the works that make up Embodiment. Co-curators, Jasmina Jovanovic and Stuart Reid will also be on hand.

Embodiment is a 30-year retrospective of ceramic sculpture by Governor General’s Award-winning artist Susan Low-Beer. The exhibition draws major work from several series of sculptures documenting the artists’ ongoing engagement with the clay body and how it sits in space. The body is a vessel for the spirit and the breath; Low-Beer presents works that prompt a heightened awareness of humanity and a shared perspective on this mortal coil. Co-curated by Jasmina Jovanovic of the Art Gallery of Algoma and Stuart Reid, this exhibition brings together seminal works by Low-Beer borrowed from private and public collections across Canada. The show provides context for major works included in the Art Gallery of Algoma collection. This project is generously funded through Department of Canadian Heritage, Museum Assistance Program.

Organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Algoma and generously funded through the Department of Canadian Heritage, Museum Assistance Program.
