The Contemporary Art Gallery presents the first major solo exhibition in Canada of work by Copenhagen and New York based artist Maryam Jafri. Extending across two gallery spaces, the exhibition presents three recent series of sculptural works alongside a new video work co-commissioned by CAG and Taxispalais Kunsthalle Tirol in Innsbruck, Austria.

Informed by an investigative and interdisciplinary process, Jafri queries the cultural and visual representations of history, politics and our contemporary economy. This exhibition takes as its central interrogation our contemporary culture’s fixation on “wellness” and self-care, and suggests that these trends represent a predictable response to an age of economic dispossession and social fragmentation. The artist explores the ways the body is increasingly experienced as a site of anxiety-fueled narcissism and self-surveillance that is politically and economically produced.
