Celestial Bodies: expanding sexuality and gender

Group exhibition by Cassils, Adrien Crossman, Dayna Danger, Rah Eleh, Brandon Hoax, Zachari Logan, Vivek Shraya

Curated by Genevieve Flavelle and Jenelle Pasiechnik

September 2 to November 11, 2023 

Celestial Bodies is a group exhibition that examines expanding forms of gender and sexuality through the lens of contemporary Canadian 2SLGBTQ+ artists working across different media.

A CELESTIAL BODY is an aggregation of matter in the universe (such as a planet, star, or nebula) that can be considered a single unit. The exhibition positions this term as an expansive framework for honouring different expressions of sexuality and gender that go beyond binaries and pre-existing definitions. By bringing together the work of seven contemporary artists working with these themes, the exhibition holds together an orbit for diverse bodies and subjectivities, considering how we all exist in relation to one another.

Co-curated by Genevieve Flavelle and Jenelle Pasiechnik, Celestial Bodies is a trans-disciplinary celebration of sexuality and gender through the lenses of love, advocacy, erotics, and the right to safety. The first of its kind in Campbell River and North Vancouver Island, this exhibition aims to be a space of visibility and advocacy for 2SLGBTQ+ people.
