Moving Forward: The Justin Langlois Exhibition
WORDS ARE WEAPONS
February 16, 2021 – June 15, 2021
Welcome to Words are Weapons! Here you will find a detailed exhibition walkthrough video, resources, and a photo gallery of Justin Langlois’ current exhibition at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.
This exhibition aims to invite participation into the ways in which we can think about the impact of language that stigmatizes and shames. In so doing we are encouraged to consider new frameworks of care that protect the health and safety of all members within our communities. Each of these works can be taken on by the individual or the public conscience as a call to act on behalf of the common good, a term founded as a way of holding everyone accountable for the care of others in a fair and just society.
With an interest in what art can do in everyday life, Langlois’ artworks look to the community to develop collaborative models as tools for gathering, learning, and making space for dialogue and affirmative action.
