A new exhibition by a Panjabi-Sikh artist is set to hit the Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives (PAMA) in Brampton this spring.

The exhibit called SOME TOTAL will be on display from Apr. 29 until Sept. 3 and will feature multi-media work by artist Pamila Matharu. It will be a two-part exhibition with an indoor multimedia component as well as an outdoor photographic banner presentation.

Matharu is a Toronto-based, Panjabi-Sikh interdisciplinary artist who “continues their auto-ethnographic journey as an intersectional cultural producer amongst other excluded narratives from the artistic canon.”

“Leveraging feminist strategies and decolonial aesthetics, Matharu presents collage, photo-montage, photography, installation and social practice art, alongside archival material and found objects for new, forgotten and divergent stories outside of the narrow focus of status-quo history,” reads PAMA’s website.

The exhibition has been developed in partnership with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and will be curated by Sharona Adamowicz-Clements.

An opening reception and artist talk about this exhibition will take place on May 6 at 1:30 p.m.

Another exhibition by a Punjabi-Sikh Canadian artist will also be hitting PAMA on Apr. 29. The exhibition, called sheeshe ‘ch thareṛ, will be on display until Sept. 3 and will feature multi-media work by artist Simranpreet Anand.
