The Campbell River Art Gallery will be hosting a Tour hosted by our Curator Jenelle Pasiechnik of our current exhibition "I am my mother's daughter". میں اپنی ماں کی بیٹی ہوں I am my mother’s daughter is a solo exhibition by artist Farheen HaQ featuring video and sculptural installation that celebrates the resilience and knowledge systems of HaQ’s mother as she settled in the Niagara region, Haudenosaunee territory, in the 1970s. The exhibition weaves together intergenerational relationships, connecting the experience of the artist’s mother who arrived in Canada to meet her partner in an arranged marriage with HaQ’s experience as a child of that union. Subsequently, its impact on HaQ’s own experience as a mother, as well as her relationship with her own daughter. This work of inner housekeeping includes: personal journeys through a family’s past as a way of moving forward, and political reconciliations determined by the territories on which she and her family arrived as guests. HaQ will be combining new and existing work in an exhibition that explores how she carries the past, and how she determines its legacy into the future.

The Campbell River Art Gallery acknowledges that it is located on the unceded traditional territory of the Ligwiłda’xw people; the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum, and Kwiakah First Nations, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. As uninvited guests to this territory, we use this acknowledgement in our gallery to highlight the enduring relationships Indigenous communities have with this land. The Campbell River Art Gallery exhibits the work of professional visual and media artists from across Canada in our Main Gallery and Satellite Gallery. Our specific focus is on supporting artistic projects from under-represented positions within contemporary art practice. The Gallery’s commitment to education is enacted through our public programming and outreach activities: workshops for adults and youth; school and community gallery tours, artist in the school programs, Super Saturday free art-making sessions, and other special events.
