Join us for the closing reception of Sandy Williams IV’s first international solo exhibition, Yesterday is Melting, at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington on Saturday, May 28, 2022.
Yesterday is Melting encapsulates a relentless pursuit of public agency and free will in the face of colonial institutions, governmental power, and increasing social amnesia. Williams implicates audiences to acknowledge how we observe and participate in history. From the reconceptualization of public monuments to the unspoken implications of unattended luggage or the sociopolitical index captured in currency, Williams strikes a balance in tension. They interplay the untouchable and the malleable, the passage of time and the infallible memory, the transparent and the concealed to encourage the viewer’s involvement in history-making.
