Attitudes in Latitudes: The Northern Wild Explores the Tropics, which spans over both The Richard Shack Gallery and Project 924, is the result of curator Ombretta Agró Andruff's research trip to Winnipeg.
The exhibition that features six artists from the Canadian microcosm and six from Miami explores their strong, and yet sometimes peculiar connection to the landscape that surrounds them as well as the creatures, either real or invented, that inhabit it.
By bringing together 12 artists from two very distinct locales, Agró not only builds a cultural bridge between the two, but also allows viewers to cross it while wearing surreal lenses – opening up their eyes to the most striking – and at the same time – most microscopic forms of environmental inspiration.
Attitudes in Latitudes shows us how artists can teach us all to pay more attention to the majestic nature that surrounds us.
