Join us in celebrating the inaugural exhibition at the newly opened Small Arms Inspection Building (SAIB).
forward motion brings together artworks that converge on concepts of mobility and movement, of transit and the transitory. Exploring ideas ranging from flight, time travel and immigration to displacement and circulation, each of the artists featured within the exhibition navigates the physical and conceptual dimensions of movement across time and space. What emerges through these multiple pathways are deeply felt responses to how the movement of bodies, objects and ideas influences the ways in which the artists featured here conceive of place-making, of awayness and hereness.
The SAIB is a historic, multi-purpose building that presents a wide range of arts and cultural programs. As the only cultural hub of its kind in Mississauga, the SAIB supports meaningful engagement through dynamic exhibitions, events and experiences. This unique venue strives to provide an open and responsive programming model that fosters collaboration and community-building.
