What’s the Value of a Dollar?

A curated exhibition by Matt Kyba. September 9th – October 14th 2022

On September 9th 2022, 7-10 pm, Matt Kyba will launch his curated exhibition, What’s the Value of a Dollar?, featuring work by Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin, Patrice Renee Washington, Shellie Zhang, Sean Weisgerber, GTA Collective, and Chester Vincent Toye.

What’s the Value of a Dollar? invites 6 artists and collectives to examine how profit-driven entities have historically exploited and dominated societies, communities, and bodies. Using video, installation, photography, and painting, the exhibition enfolds complex matrices of racial politics, socio-economic (dis)parity, and political agency to argue that North American economies not only exist, but flourish through marginalizing their own consumers and workforce. Capitalist frameworks feed off of subjugated bodies to reinforce economically productive hierarchies of race, culture, gender, and affluence. The exhibition’s title questions how monetary capital is traded and valued against ethical, cultural, and physical sacrifice. Included works employ capitalistic visual language, which acts in protest against market-based economies. Research-based approaches are utilized to historically map capitalism’s reliance on the communities it targets and marginalizes. What’s the Value of a Dollar? argues there cannot be ethical consumption and production under capitalism, and offers ways to reclaim agency by co-opting corporate tactics and language historically used to disenfranchise.”

Opening: September 9, 7:00pm – 10:00pm

Artist Talk: Exhibiting artist Sean Weisgerber, September 9, 7:00pm (ASL provided)

Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 12-5 pm

Primarily performing under his B.P. moniker, he is head of the Makade Star label; a tape label solely focused on local experimental artists present and past.

Tell All The Truth But Tell It Slant is a multi-media exhibition that addresses the atrocities of an oppressive ruling system in Iran that continually and deliberately uses socio-political suppression to control its citizens. From the viewpoint of an Iranian living in Canada, I create images, objects, and spaces that investigate power dynamics, means and instruments of power, omission, and censorship, among others. I employ allegory and representation of culturally significant imagery from Persian and Islamic art and architecture as my formal language. While accentuating the importance of materiality, my work questions the subject-object duality to more profoundly bring the political into the material realm.

Zahra Baseri is an Iranian-Canadian artist who has a BFA Honors from the University of Manitoba (2016) and an MFA from the University of Waterloo (2019). She continued her research in Lisbon, Portugal, through Maumaus, an independent study program in 2020. Baseri was Manitoba’s provincial winner for BMO 1st Art! (2016), and received the University of Waterloo Fine Arts highest honour of achievement, the Sylvia Knight Award (2019).


Tell All The Truth But Tell It Slant est une exposition multimédia qui adresse les atrocités d’un système de gouvernement oppressif en Iran qui se sert constamment et délibérément de la suppression sociopolitique pour contrôler ses citoyens. Du point de vue d’une Iranienne qui demeure au Canada, je crée des images, des objets et des espaces qui explorent les dynamiques du pouvoir, les moyens et les instruments du pouvoir, l’omission et la censure, entre autres. J’utilise l’allégorie et la représentation de l’imagerie culturelle de signification particulière provenant de l’art et de l’architecture persane et islamique, comme si c’était un langage formel pour moi. Tout en accentuant l’importance de la matérialité, mes œuvres contestent la dualité sujet-objet afin d’intégrer la politique plus profondément dans le domaine du matériel.

Zahra Baseri est une artiste iranienne canadienne qui a un baccalauréat en beaux-arts de l’Université du Manitoba (2016) et un diplôme d’études supérieures en beaux-arts de l’Université de Waterloo (2019). Elle a poursuivi sa recherche à Lisbonne au Portugal par l’entremise de Maumaus, un programme d’études indépendant, en 2020. Zahra Baseri a été choisi comme gagnante provinciale de BMO 1st Art! (2016) et a reçu la Sylvia Knight Award (2019), la plus haute marque de distinction des beaux-arts à l’Université de Waterloo.

Carol-Ann is a graduate of The School of Contemporary Dancers and also trained at Ryerson University and The Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Teacher Training Program.

D-Anne KUBY

Over the past 5 decades, D-Anne‘s movement practice has spanned the breadth of this country we call Canada and beyond. The list of folks with whom she has worked and/or studied who have had lasting influence is vast and weaves a complex tapestry. Touring highlights include Mexico with Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers in 1987 and Greece/Montenegro with Kinesis Dance in 1996. Career highlights include performing Charles Moulton’s “18 Person All-Star Ball Passing” at the Lincoln Centre in New York, and having her solo appearance at fFIDA recognized by Now Magazine as one of the top 10 dance performances to happen in Toronto in 1994. D-Anne currently makes her home in Winnipeg where she continues her ongoing exploration of the body; how it works, how it communicates, how it serve us, and how it doesn’t.

Ian MOZDZEN

Ian was raised on a farm in rural Manitoba. Creative writing, performance poetry, editorship & event organization since middle & high school turned into a B.H. English Literature & Theatre degree from Simon Fraser University & University of Winnipeg. What proceeded was two decades of study + practice of dance, theatre, anti-art, performance art, classical arts & ritual arts here in Manitoba, across Canada & abroad. The performance practices of South India & Japan, as well as nearly 15 years of figure modelling, also highly influence Ian’s approach to dance. Ian has supported organizations like Young Lungs Dance Exchange & Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers in positions of administration, programming & assistance, and coached actors & assisted professors in UW departments of English & Theatre. From it all, INDEPENDENT projects of dance, dance + music, theatre + music and dance + drawing result — loose partnerships of local dancers, artists and arts organizations devoted to sovereign programs of creative presentation and art-full contemplation. Ian is humbled by the presence of all these fine individual artists in PEOPLE FIGURE. Ian is also thankful for support from organizations like The Gas Station Arts Centre and aceartinc. PEOPLE FIGURE is an extension of the SILENT … LAB DANCE series, part I: people in between, recently presented April 10th in partnership with GSAC.

Without the dancer there is no dance. Long live these creatures of the day: the epheme-roi. 😉

Robert SIM

Robert Sim has been an artist and sculptor, who was born, raised, and lives and works in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He studied at the School of Art at the University of Manitoba, where he was the recipient of the Robert Bruce Scholarship for sculpture.

Robert’s work encompasses a wide variety of media and styles. Whatever the media, in general, he tries to represent what he sees as simply as possible, without any embellishment. He works without any preconceived ideas, and prefers to let the work develop on its own as it proceeds. Like many other artists, he believes visual art is language of its own and explains itself in its own terms. One of his favourite quotes regarding art comes from the Polish – French painter, Balthus;

“ Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language. I don’t know what to say about what I paint, really.”

Robert and his wife travel extensively, and, whenever possible, he tries to combine travel with work. He has painted and drawn across Canada, in Europe, and in Asia. Robert is the recipient of two Manitoba Arts Council grants, and he has exhibited internationally, nationally, and locally. His work is in public, corporate, and private collections across Canada, the United States, Japan, and Europe.

Derek BRUECKNER

Derek Brueckner is a Winnipeg-born visual artist and art educator. His most recent work encompasses video harvested from socially collaborative and unscripted performances. Using a multi-disciplinary practice of drawing, painting, live feed projections, performance and video he re-inscribes and re-imagines the human figure through his collaborators’ processes of improvisation and facilitated play. Artist residencies have included spaces in Italy, Vermont, Brooklyn, New Orleans, and Toronto. Solo exhibitions and participatory projects in the US have been presented at arts spaces in Brooklyn, Queens, and New Orleans. Derek also co-hosts an arts radio talk show on CKUW 95.9 FM at University of Winnipeg. Media coverage of his work includes Globe & Mail, Border Crossings, Queens Courier Magazine, and the NOLA Defender. Awarded grants from Manitoba Arts Council, Winnipeg Arts Council and Vermont Studio Center. Education includes MFA from Hunter College, City University of New York.

Shereen RAMPRASHAD

Miss Shereen Ramprashad is classically trained illustrator and multitalented in performance, soundart and spokenword. She marches to her own creativity irregardless of trends. Miss Shereen … art is life and life is art.

It began with a box of discarded vintage Italian tile. I made natural scenes in rough geometric shapes. With time, trial and error, stories took shape.

The tile speaks of the terrazzo floors built by my Italian neighbours. It tells of mining, asbestos, and the hazardous chemicals required to achieve vivid permanent colours. 

From these stories, I broke, smashed, and carved them into something new. I tell my own stories, and those of the animals of this region articulating the scars, chips, and scrapes we bear from survival in this colonial reality.

My disabilities pose unique challenges to my practice. I must rest my injured spine often. A heavy gas mask protects my hyper-sensitive immune system. 

My reality of being a disabled, queer, urban-Indigenous trauma survivor encompasses every inch of this work. The silver lining is the zen pain-free state I can achieve during high-focus work sessions. From this work comes both pain and medicine; beauty from the broken.

Thank you to the Ontario Arts Council for their support with exhibition assistance.

Michel Dumont is a queer Metis two-spirited disabled artist, and survivor of intergenerational trauma stemming from Indian Day School. He currently resides in Thunder Bay. He works in wearable art, using packing tape, mylar, cellophane and LED lights.

About Mujer Artista:

In 2014, after a series of conversations between Latin Canadian women artists Cecilia Araneda, Praba Pilar, and Monica Martinez, we came up with the idea of participating in an artistic process from the starting point of collective dialogue. We named this initiative Mujer Artista. From our core group of three, Mujer Artista has gradually expanded over the years to involve more artists.

Mujer Artista acknowledges the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and aceartinc.
