 “A Singular Event”
New Brunswick Museum, 7 pm, February 18, 2017

Join the New Brunswick Museum on Saturday, February 18, at 7 pm for “A Singular Event” – an evening of visual art, dance, poetry and conversation exploring the exhibition Suzanne Hill: Singular. The Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada and Governor-General Award-winning poet Anne Compton will present their creative responses to a new exhibition of artwork by renowned New Brunswick artist Suzanne Hill. Following the performance, Julie Scriver, Creative Director of Goose Lane Editions will lead a conversation with the Artist, Suzanne Hill; the Poet, Anne Compton; the Choreographer, Igor Dobrovolskiy, Artistic Director of the Atlantic Ballet Theatre and New Brunswick Museum Curator, Peter Larocque. This is a unique opportunity to experience art as a source of inspiration, through performance and discussion.

Produced by the New Brunswick Museum, the exhibition Suzanne Hill: Singular includes mixed media works and installations. Suzanne Hill, the 2016 recipient of the NB Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for High Achievement in Visual Art and a Strathbutler Award winner, presents a thought-provoking exploration of the singularity of the life of human beings.

“At the heart of Suzanne Hill’s latest suite of artworks, Singular, lies a philosophical question about each of us as separate beings,” states Peter Larocque,   New Brunswick Museum Curator of Cultural History and Art. “It is fascinating and enlightening to see how she explores perceptions, choices and actions in the assessment of this idea of individuality.”

In “A Singular Event”, the exhibition is complemented by responses from celebrated representatives of contemporary literature and dance, poet Anne Compton and Artistic Director Igor Dobrovolskiy of the Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada. Both are recipients of NB Lieutenant-Governor’s Awards for High Achievement in the Arts. Their responses highlight the interconnectivity of cultural forms, in art and everyday life.
