This reading room project is two-fold: 1) An installation of a reading room or "Manhwa bang" (literally meaning "comic room" in Korean) consisting of Yahgulanaas's published works, and an archive containing an assortment of previously unseen graphic works that reflate to his publications; and 2) A limited print run publication project compiling selected graphic works done by Yahgulanaas over a thirty year time period that stretches from 1997 to present.

ARCTICNOISE is a media installation by Geronimo Inutiq (madeskimo) that draws on film footage and sound materials source from the Isuma Archive at the National Gallery of Canada, as well as sound and film materials from the artist's personal collection and other ethnographic material. Conceived as an Indigenous response to Glenn Gould's celebrated composition "The Idea of the North". Inutiq will appropriate Gould's piece as a musical score, paired with new voices and imagery to produce a layered and multi-vocal work.

Eraser Street – Hubris, Humility and Humanity in the Making of a City! is an exhibition that mixes Robideau’s newest and oldest photographs of moments, milestones and monuments in Vancouver, tracing the character of the city and its residents during the last 40 years of non-stop growth. The work reflects upon the quality of life in Vancouver, the value of heritage, the economic engine of development, homelessness and the voice of the people. Robideau’s holographic satirical text charts history while critiquing the forces of government and commerce that have had a hand in shaping our urban environment. Handmade black and white gelatin silver photographs are juxtaposed with computer mediated digital inkjet prints, reinforcing the flux of change experienced in these images. Robideau’s narrative embraces a lament for what has been lost, a celebration for what has survived, and an admonition for the future of a city still in its infancy.

Requiem for Mirrors and Tigers is a series of six documented video performances by Guatemalan artist Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa. This series documents interrelated performances and were produced for the camera. Commissioned by the Corpus Network and produced in association with If I Can't Dance, Amsterdam the series features the artist working both in solo performances and with an ensemble in an ethereal and captivating series of performances. For Requiem, Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa developed a cycle of new performance works. Across the punctuated moments of the cycle, Ramirez-Figueroa used his body and direct action to perform a series of images related to the history of the Guatemalan Civil War. Approaching the Civil War from a personal position, he has softened this images through abstraction and humour, while attempting to use the intensity of the performance schedule to push beyond the immense force of the collective and inscribed memory of the war's history. Beyond the live performances, the cycle of works form a collective of videos.
