Traditional Wa(y)ves

Traditional Wa(y)ves was a group exhibition that featured artists Helen Verbanz, David Dahms, Peter Dyhkuis, Merydie Fjarlie, Allison Pinsent Baker, Sarah Burwash and Joanna Close, and was curated by Crystal Melville, Programming Coordinator at Visual Arts Nova Scotia. Traditional Wa(y)ves explores the contemporary morphing and weaving of the Nova Scotia landscape and its economy. Featured artists explore this theme in their materials and concepts conveying notions of export, migration, tourism, the informal economy and industrialization. Both to reflect on traditional and contemporary use of wave symbollism, this exhibition delves into industrial sound waves, geo waves, waves good-bye, and waiver forms. Not only do the materials and concepts expressed by exhibiting artists allude to the diverse economy, but also to diverse practices of visual artists that live in Nova Scotia, such as printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, audio and textiles. Traditional Wa(y)ves was on view from October 8th till October 29th, 2010. The exhibition took place over Nocturne: Art at Night on October 16th, 2010 from 6pm-12am, alongside a special audio/visual work titled Lost Change by Crystal Melville which was projected out onto Marginal Road in Halifax, NS.
