New Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital

This exhibition, installed throughout the public spaces of the New Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, takes its thematic cue from the building's architectural emphasis, notably its sensitive integration of elements from nature. Possible Worlds likewise brings this environment indoors, through artworks that create an expansive experience of nature. These contemporary pieces by artists of local and national renown use a range of media, including printmaking, painting, photography, video and sculpture. The artists adopt varied viewpoints, from a birds’ eye perspective that allows viewers to witness the environment at a distance, to creating near-microscopic worlds that require intimate viewing, to expressing more abstract interpretations of the landscape. The passage of time is conveyed through artworks that merge the past and the present, or interpret duration in unexpected ways. Possible Worlds invites visitors to take a moment to contemplate, discuss, and learn more about how these artists perceive and reimagine the world around them.
