The artists featured in an exhibition that is on display at the Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives (PAMA) in Brampton are set to visit the gallery this upcoming weekend.

The exhibition, called Facing Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, which contains themes about gender representation, will be on display until Apr. 9.

In celebration of the exhibition, Cara Tierney, Dayna Danger and Laura Taler, the artists featured in the exhibition, will be visiting the gallery on Saturday, Mar. 25.

“On Saturday, March 25, tour Facing Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore and meet the artists featured in the exhibition: Cara Tierney, Dayna Danger and Laura Taler,” wrote PAMA on Twitter.

The exhibition curator, Michelle Gewurtz, will lead a discussion with the artists who will explore issues related to the expression of non-binary gender and the negotiation of intersectional identity and subjectivity through visual and literary representation.

The panel talk will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and guests will have a chance to meet the artists in the art gallery from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The exhibit “bridges generational and geographic divides” as contemporary artists respond to the work of Claude Cahun (1894-1954), a Surrealist artist and genderqueer pioneer and their partner Marcel Moore (1892-1972).

According to PAMA, Cahun and Moore’s photographs have made an impact in the art world since their rediscovery in the late 1980s. The duo were partners in both art and life and are best known for their collaborative portraits of Cahun that question the gendered representations of femininity, masculinity and binary ways of thinking.

The exhibition features a group of five artists working in media such as photography, sculpture, textile, film and installation. The artwork touches upon issues of identity, activism, non-binary gender, race, queer politics and aesthetics and the legacy of both Cahun and Moore.
