    Exhibition Statement

    Like two stars connected by an invisible line to form a constellation, the hyphen in research-creation is a space for wonder, conflict, experimentation, and immense possibilities. More importantly, research-creation generates potential for new ways of thinking, engaging, and understanding the world. Perhaps most notable is its ability to care-fully interrogate and challenge institutions and western ways of knowing, through feminist, anti-colonial, and queer interventions of knowledge production. This exhibition is a practice of “research-(care)ation”, and highlights how artistic research may act as an antidote for our current world. Bringing together a constellation of research-creationists from across so-called Canada, hyphen (-) celebrates the timely creatively and scholarly work being created by artists today. 

    hyphen (-) is presented alongside the PROTOHYVE Symposium for Research-Creation at Carleton University, on traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin Anishnaabe.

    PROTOHYVE seeks to create a constellation of artists, curators, scholars, and professionals to generate new ways of understanding and framing research-creation in so called Canada. PROTOHYVE is a resource based centre for research, that invites collaboration between research-creationists and labs across Turtle Island to share ideas, successes, challenges, artwork, and resources. Their current research is focused on ethics, funding, student support, and relationships between research-creation, academic institutions and beyond.

    This exhibition is funded and supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Carleton University, PROTOHYVE Centre for Innovative Research-Creation, and Gallery 101.
