Abstract: The exhibition Outside The Lines features 10 artists who represent the beyond and within of lines through their artistic practices. This exhibition brings together diverse ways of working with materials to show qualities of living that sit outside of mainstream perception and narrative. Lines have been drawn to mark difference - to keep difference in line.

These artists share works that question the lines that have been drawn to mark difference – to keep difference in line. They collaborate with autistic experience to challenge notions of independence and care narratives; explore the daily experiences of living with disability that are uniquely humourous, difficult, or lovely; draw queer sexuality and gender through memory fragments; investigate the lived experience of existence with queer and immigrant identity; question the fragmentation of gender, feminism and the body; and challenge the dominant medical and pharmaceutical narratives of experience with cancer.

This exhibition is held in conjunction with the international conference “Lives Outside the Lines: Gender and Genre in the Americas, A Symposium in Honour of Marlene Kadar.” Kadar is a noted Canadian feminist studies and life writing scholar whose research interests clustered around issues of gender and genre with special attention given to trauma and illness studies, archival methodologies, and transnational themes in the Americas.
