ADMISSION BY DONATION
This exhibition by Whitehorse-based artist Sonja Ahlers will also be the launch of her upcoming book entitled War In Peace, which explores the break-up that brought her to the Yukon. Influenced by the 1970s book The Joy of Sex, the poetry of Emily Dickinson and other collage elements, Ahlers’ installation will delve into the emotional trauma of starting over.
The Museum of Broken Relationships is coming to the Yukon just in time for spring break-up. Conceptualized in Croatia by Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić, the Museum has since toured internationally, amassing an amazing collection. Its Canadian debut here in Whitehorse will include pieces flown from Zagreb, but also your mementos of once grand loves. It is a chance for every broken hearted person to deal with a relationship ending in a creative way — by making a contribution to the museum and sharing it with the community.
Have you ever had your heart broken? Do you own an object that won’t let you forget? Here’s your chance to give it the perfect new home!
Yukon Arts Centre is co-organizing the collection of objects to be featured in the upcoming Museum of Broken Relationships' exhibition in Whitehorse, Canada. All of the donated objects will be on display at Yukon Arts Centre from March 5 to May 23, 2015. (Only if the number of donated objects exceeds the available space will there be a selection process.)
Become a part of global emotional history!
