  • Fun 2021 collaboration with Champlain Valley High student!

    Fun 2021 collaboration with Champlain Valley High student!

    This drawing is the result a fun collaboration with Visual Arts teacher Abbie Bowker. Her student Ella made a drawing based on a photo of Inigo & I when Inigo was just a teeny tiny kid. So fun that the student's name is Ella as my eldest niece shares that same name! The photo was by Christina Thomson from when we were hanging out in the local Saint Henri park in Montreal.

    Abbie Bowker is a Rowland Fellow. She teaches art at Champlain Valley Union High School in Vermont, U.S.A.

    Abbie is also an author! and writes books after my own heart like
    Woolly Bear Winter: How North Woods Creatures Weather the Cold
    which is available for sale everywhere!

    I recommend picking it up at Without Books a not-for-profit bookseller that supports authors and community building (check out their neat podcast!) or Flying Pig Bookstore, a bookstore featuring local Vermont authors.

  • Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project at TENT Rotterdam

    Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project at TENT Rotterdam

    10.07.2020 – 27.09.2020
    TENT Rotterdam

    with free art workshop for Rotterdam's youth

    'The Visual Life of Social Affliction' is a traveling exhibition featuring 11 artists from the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora around the depiction of social suffering. With works that are sometimes poignant, but also full of beauty and hope, the artists engage with the long experience of violence and loss in the region.

    The exhibition is based on the recognition that Caribbean societies emerged from genocide among the indigenous population, enslavement of Africans, and forced labor by Indo-Surinamese and Javanese under colonial regimes - a history of structural violence whose repercussions on social life can still be felt today. . The exhibition tries to capture in images the profound impact of these traditional power patterns on people's lives.'The Visual Life of Social Affliction' is a project of Small Ax , international magazine for Caribbean art criticism. The name 'Small Ax' ('little ax') is taken from a Jamaican saying that became widely known thanks to Bob Marley: “If you are a big tree, we are a small ax”. It inspired the thinking behind Small Ax that relatively marginal creative and critical voices can make a difference by staying involved with people of Caribbean background and the changing contexts in which they live.New work was created for this Small Ax project by artists Blue Curry (Bahamas / London), Florine Démosthène (Haiti / New York), Ricardo Edwards (Jamaica), Deborah Jack (Sint Maarten / Jersey City, NJ), Patricia Kaersenhout (The Netherlands ), Miguel Luciano (Puerto Rico / New York), Anna Jane McIntyre (Canada), René Peña (Cuba), Marcel Pinas (Suriname), Belkis Ramírez (Dominican Republic), and Kara Springer (Barbados / Toronto). Ten writers from the Caribbean diaspora were invited to write about the artists for the accompanying publication.

    David Scott and Erica Moiah James curated the exhibit.

    Project Wiaspora x TENT: podcast conversationsIn this podcast series, Gyonne Goedhoop and Richard Kofi together with various guest speakers research what 'being Caribbean' means in different Dutch cities. The conversations take place in TENT and can be heard via Project Wiaspora on Spotify.

    This project was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Andy Warhol Foundation in New York. This European edition of the exhibition is a collaboration between TENT and the Research Center for Material Culture / Wereldmuseum Rotterdam.

  • Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project @ The National Gallery of the Bahamas

    Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project @ The National Gallery of the Bahamas

    August 2019 -I am proud to be participating in the travelling exhibition Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project currently on view at The National Gallery of the Bahamas from Aug 22, 2019 – Nov 10, 2019.

    The Visual Life of Social Affliction seeks to grapple with the ways in which Caribbean visual practice critically engages long-standing experiences of social suffering. Recognizing the real senses in which the Caribbean not only was born in the structural violence of Native genocide, African slavery, and Indian indenture instituted by colonial powers, but has been sustained since then by the relentless continuation of institutionalized disrespect, disregard, and dishonor, this project seeks to capture the destructive impact of dominating powers on the lives of Caribbean people. Our wager is that the visual arts constitute one of the most vital expressive and hermeneutic optics through which to explore social life in general and the life of social affliction in particular.

    Participating visual artists include Marcel Pinas, Anna Jane McIntyre, Miguel Luciano, Florine Demosthene, Patricia Kaersenhout, Belkis Ramírez, René Peña, Ricardo Edwards, Blue Curry and Kara Springer.

    Participating writers include Kaneesha Parsard, Nicole Smythe-Johnson, Marielle Barrow, Erica Moiah James, David Scott, Claire tancons, Chandra Frank, Anna Kesson, Christina León



    The Visual Life of Social Affliction is a project made possible by David Scott, Erica James, Nijah Cunningham, kempadoo roshini and Juliet Ali

    From June 8 to June 24 as part of the Luminato festival, there will be a collabo-installation made by my aunt, Jean Boulby, myself and my brother Neil McIntyre at Fort York in Toronto. It's called The Encampment and features 200 tents commemorating the histories of civilians in and around the time the war of 1812. We have chosen to focus on Josiah Henson born June 15, 1789 – May 5, 1883, an escaped African-American slave, whose amazing story was published in 1949 The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself and was the inspiration for Harriet Beecher Stowe's seminal novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin published in 1852. In response to reading his biography I have carved a wooden portrait and posted him naked to be clothed by my aunt, who has done extensive research and also constructed a story laden quilt. My brother and I will also construct a sound element to go with the sculpture.

  • S’exposer aux intempéries - May 12, 2011

    S’exposer aux intempéries - May 12, 2011

    anna Jane mcintyre Beaubienne Baptiste, ballerine de la nouvelle Vague
    La soirée du 12 mai soulignera également le lancement de l’oeuvre Beaubienne Baptiste, ballerine de la Nouvelle Vague d’anna Jane mcintyre. Cette oeuvre ornera la façade de l’édifice Graff de mai à octobre pour la 4e édition du projet S’exposer aux intempéries, mis sur pied par l’Atelier Graff. Initiant des artistes à la conception, à la réalisation et à l’installation d’une œuvre d’art public éphémère en milieu urbain, ce projet offre une vitrine à l’art actuel tout en mettant en évidence les multiples possibilités de l’image numérique.

    Anna Jane McIntyre est fascinée par les arts du cirque — le spectacle nocturne, le glamour, le kitsch, la lumière et l’action. Dans son travail, elle explore l’animisme, le rituel, l’invisible, l’imaginaire, le convenu, l’équilibre et l’asymétrie. À son arrivée à Montréal, l’artiste a été frappée
    par le pouvoir évocateur des noms de rues ; la connotation très optimiste de la rue Beaubien lui a inspiré le personnage de Beaubienne Baptiste, incarné par l’artiste le temps d’une photographie. À la fois Montréalaise, ballerine et superhéroïne, cette icône étrange et douée de pouvoirs surnaturels surplombant la rue surveille les passants.
    Artiste multidisciplinaire, Anna Jane McIntyre vit et travaille à Montréal. Elle a obtenu une maîtrise en arts visuels de l’Université Concordia en 2010, après un baccalauréat à l’OCAD (majeure en arts d’impression). Elle expose régulièrement son travail au Canada depuis 1998. Pour voir ses projets récents, consulter dontarguewithghosts.blogspot.com.
    Nous remercions la Galerie Graff pour sa collaboration. Nous remercions également le Cirque du Soleil de son appui au projet S’exposer aux intempéries .

    L’Atelier Graff est un lieu de création qui soutient et valorise la multiplicité des approches, la liberté de recherche et d’expérimentation et qui aborde les défis de l’art actuel en encourageant l’émergence des nouvelles pratiques reliées au développement des arts d’impression. Ce centre d’artistes autogéré s’adresse à ses membres, artistes professionnels et émergents d’horizons divers, en leur proposant un environnement de travail stimulant généré par le partage d’un espace de création qui favorise l’évolution des démarches individuelles et collectives.
