Current Exhibition

Marigold Santos / binhi at buhol

January 29 – March 13, 2021

Jarvis Hall Gallery is delighted to present binhi at buhol, a new body of work by Filipinx-Canadian artist Marigold Santos. The exhibition’s title is written in Tagalog/Filipino, offering an access point rooted in language, a foundational aspect of identity that Santos is reclaiming since immigrated to Canada with her family as a child. binhi at buhol translates as “seeds and knots” connoting both growth and binding or constriction. The title imparts a position to speak to nuance within the exhibition providing a compelling place for the viewer to explore how Santos translates her experience of diaspora and fractured identity as a Filipinx-Canadian woman.
