A Generational Retrospective
Sandra Semchuk

February 7 – April 5, 2020
Join us for the Opening on Thursday, February 6, 7 PM

In A Generational Retrospective, Ukrainian-Canadian artist Sandra Semchuk shares stories that look beyond her own perspective and her own lifetime. The exhibition includes work made across almost fifty years of practice including early co-operative photographs made with her father, Martin Semchuk and her daughter, Rowenna Losin, and collaborations with her late husband, Rock Cree actor, orator and artist, James Nicholas, and with singer/composer, Jerry DesVoignes. The exhibition also includes recent video portraits dedicated to future generations that are made in collaboration with Courtenay-based Cree, Tsimshian, Gitksan, and Métis artist Skeena Reece. Also featured are photo and video installations that consider generations in relation to the ocean and the forest.

Sandra Semchuk has exhibited widely across Canada and internationally, and her works reside in the collections of the Vancouver Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Canada, and many others. She was a co-founder of the Photographers Gallery in Saskatoon, and was Associate Professor at Emily Carr University in Vancouver from 1987 until her recent retirement. In 2018 she was awarded the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts.

A Generational Retrospective brings together works from Semchuk’s lifelong dialogue across ages and cultures, and is the final show in a year in which Nanaimo Art Gallery asks the question “What are generations?”
