• Visual Life Of Social Affliction: A Small Axe Project

    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

  • Luminato Festival, Toronto - The Encampment June 8-24, 2012

    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 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

    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.
