Griffin Art Projects is pleased to present our fall exhibition, Flower Petal Tongues, curated by RBC Senior Curator Corrie Jackson.

The exhibition presents work resulting from or inducing the action of performance, either as text, documentation, or objects. All works are selected from private collections from across Canada, furthering the element of the ongoing, intimate performance of living with works of contemporary art. In this way, the exhibition explores the sensual awareness of viewership, the echoing of the object in the body. The investigation, presented here through a selection of works, draw from the artist’s own interest in performance, spectatorship, and durational viewing. The pieces themselves draw upon the intimate act of looking and the durational dialogue that springs between the viewer and the object.

Corrie Jackson, RBC Senior Curator, joined RBC in 2014, overseeing the management and strategy of the RBC Corporate Art Collection. Previ­ously she worked at the University of Toronto art Museum, at Sotheby’s Canada, and as an independent curator. She finished her Masters in Visual Studies, Curatorial Practice at the University of Toronto with a focus on contemporary Canadian artists. Jackson’s curatorial interests focus on cross-generational dialogues and developing the role of collections as accountable and inclusive narratives.
