DESCRIPTION

Drawn from a curatorial program that encompasses many of today’s most accomplished visual artists, Oakville Galleries’ permanent collection has grown to become an invaluable resource through which we can examine the past, describe the present and imagine the future.

On the occasion of her retirement from Oakville Galleries, curator Marnie Fleming organizes a selection of works from the Galleries’ holdings that have moved her, challenged her and encouraged her to think in new and unexpected ways. While these pieces do not adhere to a simple unifying narrative, they do tell a notable story: not only of Fleming's two decades at the Galleries, but of the history of the institution and the diversity of art practices that have unfolded since the early 1990s.
