Material Girls is about women taking up space. This large-scale group exhibition brings together Canadian and international emerging, mid-career, and senior female artists from across artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds. Uniting these works is an exploration of material process and notions of excess as they relate to the feminized body, gendered space, and capitalist desire. Sumptuous, decorative, and visually overwhelming, the exhibition space becomes a horror vacui, a jubilant and visceral counterpoint to the standard conventions of the austere white cube.

Material Girls is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture and Saskatchewan Lotteries. Exhibition tour is supported by Culture on the Go.
