Allan Casey + Marlene Yuzak
Exhibition & Residency:
January 1 – March 31, 2014
Marlene Yuzak & Allan Casey, artist and journalist respectively, collaborate on projects that address their shared interest in a wide range of interconnected themes and issues: attachment and entitlement, social change and social responsibility, media agendas, commodification of spirituality, neo-socialism, positivism, the human-nature interface, Canadian apartheid and First Nations. They are both deeply influenced by their place of origin in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan — the first North American political jurisdiction to elect a socialist government, the birth-place of medicare and of the international movement called Idle No More. Marlene studied art at the University of Saskatchewan, has exhibited widely as painter and sculptor, is represented in many collections, public and private. Allan is a well-known Canadian journalist who has contributed to publications as diverse as Adbusters and Reader’s Digest. His book Lakeland: Ballad of a Freshwater Country, received the Canada’s 2010 Governor General’s Award for Nonfiction.
