Grasping at the Roots

Edmonton, Alberta
2020-01-17 To 2020-03-28 MST

Explore the latest exhibition at the Mitchell Art Gallery in MacEwan University's Allard Hall from January 17 to March 28, 2020. Curated by Christina Battle, Grasping at the Roots features new work by Debbie Ebanks Schlums, Serena Lee, Eugenio Salas, and Shawn Tse, with recent video by Scott Portingale. Grasping at the Roots takes cues from mycorrhizae, mutually beneficial associations between fungi and plants. Fungi have the ability to enhance nutrient take up in plant roots, ensuring healthy development; in return, they benefit by absorbing the plant carbohydrates they require to sustain growth. The participating artists prioritize community-building and engaged relationships built on responsibility and care in a time when many—especially those on the margins—face real life threats and challenges. Utilizing prolonged, ongoing conversation and participation as a curatorial strategy, Grasping at the Roots hopes to challenge the ways in which artists and curators work together: prioritizing collaboration, fair compensation and the strength of the collective model. A direct response to the urgent and critical time we live in, the exhibition sees itself as a necessary tactic, pointing toward, while simultaneously creating, a system of roots to continually build upon into the future. Various public programming will be running alongside the exhibition.
