This exhibition presents recent work by Nova Scotia-based artist Ericka Walker. Her large-scale multi-colour lithographs draw on the vibrant history of propaganda, printed ephemera, and advertising from twentieth century Europe and North America, exposing nostalgia as an ongoing rhetorical device in a contemporary sociopolitical climate that clings savagely to destructive birthrights and colonial residues.

Ericka Walker was born in Hartford, Wisconsin, USA. She received a BS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and an MFA from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Her work has been included in numerous domestic and international exhibitions and biennials, as well as public, teaching, and private collections in Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia. She currently teaches studio coursework in printmaking as an Associate Professor in the Fine Arts Division at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 5, 7-9 pm.
