Taking its inspiration from the Self-Help and Actualization Movement (or S.H.A.M as author Steve Salerno wryly notes), this exhibition comprises painting, sculpture, performance and digitally based works by eight artists from Canada and the United States. The works in the exhibition consider dichotomies inherent to this pervasive and controversial movement including, striving/acceptance, spirituality/superstition and hope/despair.
