Downhill from Here: A Sensorial Geography (September 18, 2016)

Narratives in Space + Time Society was commissioned by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to create a public art walk related to Terroir: A Nova Scotia Retrospective.  The exhibition, running from June 2016 to January 2017, “looks at regional artistic expression through the culture from which it emerges.”

The many artists and collaborators involved in the NiS+TS event “Downhill from Here”, held on Sunday, September 18, 2016, are from a broad field of expertise and interest ~ including cosmology, astronomy, the extensive history of African Nova Scotians, storytelling in several traditions, the state of arts and culture in the province, somatic movement, and the geography of the region.  “Downhill from Here” began on Citadel Hill with an opening by Women of the Shore, and concluded at the Gallery itself, with a consideration of the works in the retrospective show.
