Harbour is a sprawling curatorial project that includes a group exhibition, events, and a book publication. Following tangents of thought rooted in memory, the exhibition features the work of nine contemporary artists with strong ties to New Brunswick. A blend of archival imagery and contemporary art spirals out from the title word harbour, a geographic term that is both emblematic of the Maritimes and poetically evokes safekeeping, this project composes a polyphony of local lore. The works speak to the human experience of inhabiting a coastal area and being inhabited by things we cannot let go; building a collective voice through the etymology of the commonly used maritime descriptor for our locale: Harbour.
