School Tour | February 25 to June 18, 2023

The Shape of Obus

Dates: February 25 to June 18, 2023
Art Activity: Textiles

This exhibition presents work from Canadian artist Shannon Bool. Using various mediums, including tapestry, collage, and sculpture, Bool uses a feminist lens to explore the intersection of architecture and modern art. By mixing the fluidity of silks and tapestries with the rigidity of modernist architecture, Bool draws from creative influences such as Picasso and Le Corbusier to position women in places they would not normally be. This exhibition is produced and toured by the Musée d’Art de Joliette, Quebec.

Art Activity: Students will have a chance to explore textile art and respond to the works in the exhibition using fabric, thread, and yarn.
