I Am Here: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces
Art Gallery of Ontario
November 7, 2020 to January 31, 2021
“Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario, I Am Here: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces will open November 7, 2020 and run until January 31, 2021. The exhibition brings together myriad expressions of a universal human impulse: the desire to record our daily lives.
This impulse dates back at least 40,000 years, to the era of cave paintings, and has been a persistent feature of our civilization ever since, appearing in hundreds of different forms. Paintings, prints, drawings and photographs appear in this ambitious exhibition alongside personal photo albums, Polaroids, diaries, time capsules and, notably, home movies.”

“Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present “This Land”, our fifth solo exhibition of work by Canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson.
In “This Land”, Johnson focuses on landscape scenes from a variety of places that depict natural beauty and wonder in a multitude of guises. Not limiting herself to a specific location or clear narrative, Johnson continues to bridge the gap between the psychology of place and the dividing line between what is real and what is felt – a quality that remains a theme in all of her projects.”
