    Glenn Gear
    Kimutsik

    Apr 22–Nov 3
    Glenn Gear is a multidisciplinary artist of mixed Inuit background, based in Montréal. He is originally from Corner Brook, Newfoundland and has family ties to Nunatsiavut. Gear's designs for PAMA's outdoor banners are based on his Kimutsik (dog team) video projections in which the dogs are untethered and set free to run through a wide range of public spaces, both indoors and outdoors. The impetus for this ongoing work stems from a complicated history of what is often referred to by many Inuit Elders as "the dog slaughter"—a time in Canada during the 1950s through to the 1970s when many of the sled dogs were culled through government legislation without due community consultation. For the PAMA banners, the dogs return as spirits set against a kaleidoscopic background of beadwork made and photographed by the artist. This outdoor installation is a part of the group exhibition Oh My Dog! at PAMA May 25–November 3.
