Date: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 12:00 PM - Saturday, August 14, 2021 3:00 PM
Location: Orillia Museum of Art and History
An extension of previous research into the ecological, social and psychological shadows of today’s global textile industry, Unfurled is a an exhibition by Barrie artist Jill Price that speculates on how animals might choose to engage with, frame, label and question the colonial histories of the North American Fur Trade and material objects held within the archives of Canada's museums. ​ Drawing out narratives based on animals hunted, trapped and exchanged as part of early economic imperialism, the installation utilizes objects and materials held in historical collections, the larger archive of consumerist culture, and word play, to allude to how the mass killing of animals led to the material wealth of their prime predators, early French and British traders and colonial settlers. Currently installed at the Orillia Museum of Art and History due to the importance of the Atherley Narrows, a site that became a key site of cultural and capital exchange that led to the eventual formation of Orillia as a European settlement in 1840, Price has turned the gallery into a living space reminiscent of a late 19th century parlour to allude to how interior and exterior environments are materially and psychically linked. ​ Until the exhibition opens up to the public, feel free to view images of the installation on the artist's website. ​ THANK-YOU TO THE PAUL QUARRINGTON LEGACY FUND FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF THIS EXHIBITION. Disclaimer: No animals were hurt or killed during the production of this exhibition.

ONE TIME ONLY - This event will not be archived! Join our Artistic Director, Daniel Vnukowski, on Wednesday, June 23 at 7pm EDT (EASTERN) for a special, virtual presentation featuring the eminently distinguished musicologist Dr. Alan Walker, in which we dispel many of the myths surrounding the tortured genius. "In this particular discussion, I’ll be playing the role of a snarky 19th-century German music critic who despises Chopin’s works,” says Mr. Vnukowski. “All in good humour, tongue-in-cheek, but a subtle way to get closer to the depths of Chopin’s musical genius." We’ll be following the footsteps of Frederic Chopin and covering important topics such as musical aesthetics, Polish vernacular and interpretation as the tail-end of the composing process, with plenty of music excerpts by renowned Chopin interpreters. The event will last approximately 50 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A. Dr. Walker’s recent landmark book Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times has established him as a leading authority on Chopin and his time, earning praise in such publications as: New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice The Sunday Times (U.K.) Classical Music Book of 2018 The Economist’s Best Books of 2018. We’ll also discuss the unique journey that led Dr. Walker to a treasure trove of documents buried deep within the archives in Warsaw, his personal relationship with the music of Chopin, and a few side notes from some of the obnoxious, 19th century music critics who despised Chopin’s music! Followed by a solo piano recital on June 26 with the music of Frederic Chopin. Visit http://collingwoodfestival.com/summer-solstice for the entire series.
