As an analogous iteration more akin to a floodlight, the 2017 Canadian Artist Spotlight on Deirdre Logue will be turned over completely to other voices to shine beyond the singular artist persona working within a community. While taking up space across three gallery exhibitions, Logue will also be giving up space. This year’s spotlight will be given over to eight other artists to do whatever they choose artists who have influenced her in her twenty-five years as an artist; artists who she has admired from afar, who she has argued with; and artists who have looked up to her, critiqued her, and followed her. Coming together as an ensemble of various voices taking the forms of new video works and live performances, the floodlights are cast on larger issues at play within Logue’s career including anxiety and control, repetition, queerness, feminisms, soft butch visibility, resistance, and vulnerability.

The 2017 Canadian Artist Spotlight features new works by Rita McKeough, Steve Reinke, Eleanor King, Adrienne Crossman, Serena Lee, Cait McKinney, Midi Onodera, and Erika DeFreitas.
