THE WHOLE SHEBANG - EXHIBIT AT IDEA EXCHANGE

The Whole Shebang at Idea Exchange, Queen's Sq. November 24, 2017 – February 11, 2018 seeks to question what it means to collect and the principles and policies in place around such an act. Who decides what is worth preserving and what isn’t? What happens when the trajectory of a collection changes? Is there a point when collections overstep their mandate? For the duration of this research project, the vaults will be emptied and every work in Cambridge Art Galleries’ collection of 200+ works will be on display simultaneously and all within the same gallery space. Drawing attention to the volume of works as well as the tools and materials used to protect them, Cambridge Art Galleries is not only displaying a collection spanning 30 years but presenting an opportunity to rethink what it means to collect, the policies around such an enterprise, the logistics of objecthood, and whether or not collecting should still be a relevant and active practice.
Research and Tour Hours:
Tuesday to Thursday: 2:00 – 5:00pm, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am – 12:00pm, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Please join us at Idea Exchange Queens Square Studio for the inaugural screening of The Legacy Project, a moving documentary film that follows seniors and youth as they share traditions of drum making, cooking, and harvesting. Fundamentally celebrating the exchange of
wisdom and ritual between cultures and generations, the film was a collaboration between Cambridge Art Galleries, community seniors organizations, and filmmakers Gary Kirkham and Dwight Storring. This remarkable project, developed as a response to Canada’s sesquicentennial
anniversary, transcended barriers between generations and cultures within our community to create an inspiring and enduring legacy heirloom. Filmed on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnawbe and Neutral peoples, this project was made possible through the New Horizons for Seniors Grant and by support from our community partners: Stirling Heights Long Term Care, Chartwell Queen’s Square Retirement Residence, and the Cambridge Gleaners.

BECKY'S NEW CAR - CAMBRIDGE COMMUNITY PLAYERS
Jan 26, 2018 8:00 PM Feb 04, 2018 8:00 PM
"Becky's New Car"
by Steven Dietz
Directed by David MacMillan
Evenings: January 26, 27, February 2, 3, 9 and 10, 2018
Matinee: February 4, 2018
Evening Curtain: 8 PM, Matinee Curtain: 2 PM

A fork in the road often appears when you least expect it, and in the most unlikely way. When this happens to Becky, she finds that despite what she thinks is the obvious choice, it becomes clear that it’s not nearly so apparent. She suddenly has thoughts she never believed she could have, and maybe even the ability to act on them. Does this fork in the road become a turning point in the life of this middle-aged, happily married average woman? ‘Becky’s New Car’ is a play
about options and their repercussions, choices that can lead to the point of no return.
Funny, heart-warming and thoughtful, you will leave the theatre with
your own thoughts and the choices you would make, given the chance

CINESERIES: MEDITATION PARK
Feb 22, 2018 7:30 PM Feb 22, 2018 9:00 PM
Idea Exchange Cineseries presents: Cineseries: Meditation Park at Galaxy Cinemas, Cambridge Centre.
The film opens with Maria (Cheng Pei Pei; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) hosting a birthday celebration for her workaholic accountant husband, Bing (Tzi Ma, Arrival). Maria reveres Bing and remains in awe of the sacrifices he has made for the family, so much so that she even respects his insistence that she not speak to their son after a long-ago slight. But when she finds evidence that Bing may not be the perfect person she believes him to be, she’s forced to consider her world in a radically different light. Maria embarks on a journey of self-discovery by engaging with the world around her, something Bing has always discouraged. She befriends a group of local eccentrics and a rather shady neighbour, Gabriel (Don McKellar; Window Horses, Trigger). Maria soon realizes that people’s lives are much more complicated than Bing has led her to believe.

Transformed Through Touch Queen’s Square Gallery Opening: Friday, March 9, 7:00pm, QS
Transformed Through Touch is a collaborative project with the deaf/blind community and with artists Gareth Lichty, Gary Kirkham, and Meghan Sims. Inspired by a series of creative workshops at the W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind and the Canadian Deafblind Association Ontario Chapter, this project will culminate in an immersive, multisensory
public art installation at our Queen’s Square Gallery. The installation will feature multi-sensory
components that enhance and heighten kinetic, sonic, scent, tactile, and visual stimulation. Free from the normal ‘Look! Don’t touch!’ stipulations typical of art gallery and museum experiences, it will encourage visitors to counter-intuitively experience ‘what it feels like’.
Monday to Thursday 9:30 to 8:30
Friday and Saturday 9:30 to 5:30
Sunday 1:00 to 5:00
