Southwest Seen

December 16 to August 10, 2023

Centre at the Forks Outdoor Screens

Southwest Seen is a special initiative involving the commission of new digital media works by Calla Moya, Raquel Rowe, and Jude Abu Zaineh; three artists with meaningful connections to Southwestern Ontario. Outdoor-facing projections from the Museum’s large Centre at the Forks windows, overlooking the Deshkan Ziibi (Thames River) will occur during hours of darkness. The works will run during three different time periods from December 2022 through August 2023.

Southwest Seen is developed in partnership with Windsor’s acclaimed Media City Film Festival (MCFF), which will also host these media works in 2023. The project involves artistic and curatorial partners including MCFF’s Artistic Director Oona Mosna; the London Ontario Media Arts Association (Christine Negus), and London artists Evond Blake (aka MEDIAH), Anahí González Terán, and Amanda Myers/Kitaay Bizhikikwe.

Calla Moya’s media works have been exhibited at Artspace, Peterborough; The8fest and Vtape in Toronto; the Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Germany; and Festival Phénomena, Montreal. Moya has participated in LOMAA’s Broad Topics series, and completed art residencies at Saw Video and Studio 303.

Raquel Rowe’s current and past exhibitions include programs at Queens Park Gallery, Bridgetown, Barbados; Gallery TPW and Trinity Square, Toronto; Ed Video Media Arts Centre, Guelph; Optica centre d’art contemporain and La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse, Montreal; Cambridge Art Galleries; and the Zavitz Gallery, University of Guelph.

Jude Abu Zaineh has presented her work at the Ontario Science Centre and MOCA Toronto (residency); Cultivamos Cultura and the Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia in Portugal; Centro de Cultura Digital, Mexico City; Centre Culturel Canadien, Paris; SVA, New York City; the Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco; Forest City Gallery, London; and Art Windsor Essex.
