Featuring the work of artists Sam Bradd, Nicole Marie Burton, Ethan Heitner, Orion Keresztesi, Kwentong Bayan (Althea Balmes and Jo SiMalaya Alcampo), David Lester, Matt McInnes, Simon Orpana, Kara Sievewright and Tania Willard.

Join us for an art exhibition about past and present stories of labour activism in Canada. From the historic Stelco strike of 1946 to the experience of migrant care workers in the 21st century, this show reflects the diverse work of fifteen activist comic artists and writers from across Canada. The show celebrates the 2016 releases of Showdown! Making Modern Unions by Rob Kristofferson and Simon Orpana, and Drawn to Change, by the Graphic History Collective, both published by Between the Lines Press.

Join us for an Opening Reception in our Community Gallery on September 9th, 2016 at 7 pm.

This exhibition is produced in partnership with Between the Lines and the Graphic History Collective. The authors of Showdown! wish to acknowledge that their research was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
