A closer look at a very special work in Sharmistha Kar’s ‘Next to a River - Embroidery as Map and Shelter’. .
McIntosh Gallery curator, Helen Gregory reflects on the artist’s invitation for the viewer to pull a thread from the work and take it with them, “I pulled it slowly, enjoyed the physical sensation of the thread popping from each stitch, and considered the labour that I was undoing.”
To participate in this gesture, be sure to visit the gallery yourself before the entire work has unravelled. The remainder of ‘Next to a River...’ and Joy Wong’s ‘skim’ will remain on view through to September 8 at McIntosh.

Pay us a visit for a closer look at Joy Wong’s exhibition ‘skim’. McIntosh Gallery is back to regular gallery hours, open from 10am-5pm each weekday and 12-4pm on Saturdays.
‘skim’ considers the dirt surrounding us, the inbetweenness of skin, boundaries, and thresholds, and what it means to have and be a body.

Congratulations to all participants of @positivevoiceatnokeekwe on their exhibition currently installed at @londonlibrary Central Branch. 
Thank you to all who joined us to celebrate on Saturday afternoon. In case you missed it, the exhibition remains on through to the end of the month.
We’re at @londonlibrary’s Central branch today working alongside @positivevoiceatnokeekwe  to install their exhibition “We Are Womyn With a Path Leading into the Future” in the third floor gallery space. 
The exhibition will be on display from July 7-31. A celebration will be held at Central Library next Saturday, July 14 from 1-4pm, featuring traditional food, as well as spoken word, dancing, singing and drumming performances.
We may be closed for maintenance this month, but we’re excited to present “Condensation (A Cove Story)” opening at @satelliteprojectspace tomorrow evening. The work will remain on view through to July 19.
This 10-minute silent looped projection by Michael Snow premiered at McIntosh Gallery in 2009. The work is a part of our permanent collection but has not been exhibited in London, Ontario since its inaugural presentation.
The opening reception will run from 7-9pm tomorrow evening in conjunction with programming at both @dnaartspace and @michaelgibsongallery. Looking forward to seeing everyone out for what will be a stellar art crawl in London! #ldnent #getdtl .

Thanks to all who joined us for a great public lecture led by artist and doctoral candidate Mark Kasumovic yesterday! 
Mark spoke about his thesis work and his intentions to create images that look deeper than surface, investigating critical questions that arise from considering technology and science from the perspective of the camera and their photographs. 
His exhibition, “A Human Laboratory”, is on at McIntosh through to June 29. #westernu
Current exhibitions remain on view at Mcintosh Gallery through June 30. As always, we’re here until 5pm on Fridays and open 12-4pm on Saturdays!

Come by, cool off, and take in Mark Kasumovic’s exhibition “A Human Laboratory”.
