New Fraktur - Meg Harder Exhibition Opening

  • Grebel Gallery 140 Westmount Rd. N Waterloo, Ontario N2L 3G6 Canada (map)

Join us for a reception celebrating the new Grebel Gallery exhibit, New Fraktur by Meg Harder. 

The works featured in “New Fraktur” critically and playfully reinterprets tropes archived in Mennonite visual culture and narratives through a personal lexicon to create fictive environments. This work considers the social history of fraktur folk art and its connection to the patriarchal and colonial legacy of the Waterloo Region. “New Fraktur” aims to create space for a localized questioning of reality and reorient our vision to a more expansive and stranger view of our place in time and history.
