EXHIBITION OVERVIEW

A provocative exhibition by Winnipeg artist, Sarah Anne Johnson, winner of the 2008 Grange Prize.

In the 1950s, Sarah Anne Johnson’s maternal grandmother was an unsuspecting participant in a CIA research program. Seeking treatment for post-partum depression, she was subjected to a series of mind control experiments at the Allen Memorial Institute at McGill University, Montreal. In House on Fire, Johnson uses her artistic practice to explore this difficult history and begin to understand its effects on her family.

Sarah Anne Johnson is represented by Julie Saul Gallery, New York and Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto.
