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

The exhibit called sheeshe ‘ch thareṛ, will be on display from Apr. 29 until Sept. 3 and will feature multi-media work by artist Simranpreet Anand whose work has been influenced by her experiences as a young Punjabi-Sikh Canadian.

The exhibition “captures the fissures emerging from the artist’s ongoing encounters with matter and material culture in our globalized world” and will include works made in collaboration with Conner Singh VanderBeek, an ethnomusicologist and scholar.

“Anand’s practice, indebted to familial and cultural community, engages materials and concepts drawn from the histories of Punjab and its diasporas,” reads PAMA’s website.

The exhibition, which is guest curated by Sajdeep Soomal, was developed by the Reach Gallery Museum where it premiered in the past and has been readapted for its PAMA presentation.

An opening reception and artist talk about this exhibition will take place on May 6 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Participants are invited to attend PAMA for an exhibition walk-through with Pamila Matharu and Sharona Adamowics-Clements, which will be followed by a presentation and discussion by Anand and Soomal.
