We do not dream of labour

Through explorations of motherhood, nature, music, and bare emotional and physical truths, this exhibition addresses these questions, and shows the diverse ways that Black, Caribbean, and African artists (within the Ottawa-Gatineau region) express rest while altering the art landscape. Their voices provide dialogue on the 7 different types of rest (sensory, emotional, social, spiritual, physical, creative, and mental) through various media, including paintings, sculptures, and poetry.

Artists: Sarah Mecca Abdourahman, Sydney Agnant, Andy Akangah, Tolorunlogo Akinrinola, Stéphane Alexis, Zineb Allaoui, Lucille Giwa-Amu, Taiwo Apampa, Maya “MayaSpoken” Basudde, Esther Calixte-Bea, Teanna Chase, Fanny Constantino, Francesca Désulmé, Sandra Dusabe, Funto Kusimo, Elvin Girineza, Meghan Guerriero-Blaise, Yasmine Hadid, Felicity Hauwert, Jean Christian Furaha Ishimwe, Sonia Ekiyor-Katimi, Fatuma Kou, Charifa Labarang, Elbert Laroc, Aly (Joy-Lily) McDonald, William Martinak, Augustine Mgala, Sabrina Niyigaruye, Oladimeji Odunsi, Ekene Okonkwo, Tanitoluwa Olorunyomi, Abayomi Orimoloye, David D. Pistol, Dion Prints, Anne-J Rene, Moksha Singh-Sharpe, Danny Saint-Fort, “Ngoya Artisan” Joyce Ngoya Tshiyoyo.
