For the past decade, Dominique Rey has been documenting Les Filles de la Croix, a disappearing order of Catholic nuns. Her investigations into the order began in her hometown of Winnipeg, and have since taken her to Brazil, Argentina and France, where she captures the quiet lives and intimate spaces of the sisters. Under the Rose Arch presents a selection of lens-based work from this ongoing documentary project. Each work derives from images taken by Rey at the various convents she visited, culminating in a composite portrait of the sisterhood. The artist represents the nuns through the spaces and objects that surround them, bringing the meditative and devotional qualities of their world into visibility.

Attitudes in Latitudes which spans over both the Richard Shack Gallery and Project 924 is the result of the curator’s research trip to Winnipeg. The exhibition features six artists from the Canadian microcosm and six from Miami exploring their strong, and yet sometimes peculiar connection to the landscape that surrounds them as well as the creatures, either real or invented, that inhabit it.
