A constellation of digital initiatives in visual culture
Over the past two years, we have been thinking about our programming as interconnected lines of inquiry, learning how exhibitions and programs—not just artworks—can be curated into reciprocal conversation. It is in-between these exhibitions and programs—at their vibrating edges—where new connections are ignited across Agnes’s collections and commissions.
We are back with a second season of With Opened Mouths: The Podcast, where we give artists, poets, performers, activists and curators a platform to speak about what motivates them to imagine new worlds.
Examine cotton garments in the Queen’s University Collection of Canadian Dress at Agnes and their connection to the global cotton industry through archival research, artistic intervention, and scientific enquiry.

Working with an expanded view of the curatorial—from making collections to simply making connections—we invited artists, cultural workers, students and community members to join in this week-long free event, through discussions, performances, exhibitions and workshops.
