Contemporary Art at Rokeby Museum

Contemporary Art at Rokeby Museum

In May 2019, Contemporary Art at Rokeby Museum began an ambitious two-year project designed to engage artists and the public with Rokeby Museum’s archives, objects, buildings, and land. Working in collaboration with Kasini House, the goal was to demonstrate how contemporary art can pick up the unfinished work of history and foster civic engagement in social, economic, and environmental justice issues.

In 2020, Contemporary Art at Rokeby Museum will present “Mending Fences: New Work by Carol MacDonald.” This multifaceted exhibition of objects, monotype prints, and site-specific installations will–in the face of complex cultural challenges–promote both simple and profound acts of repair. The exhibition will open when Rokeby Museum opens for the season and run through October 25th, 2020 with a public reception and book release on opening day.
