Border Crossings

Border Crossings is a bold new series of large scale drawings by Vancouver artist Carel Moiseiwitsch. Each of the grand black, white, and single tone triptychs represents a life threshold as well as a transition point — illegal or legitimate — a political or conceptual boundary, a zone where human rights are suspended. Moiseiwitsch’s strident images fearlessly challenge identity and transition, especially the ultimate transition from life to death.

Born in England, Carel Moiseiwitsch now lives and works in Vancouver. She has exhibited in solo and group shows since 1985, including a 1989 solo show at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Moiseiwitsch teaches at Vancouver’s Emily Carr College of Art and Design and is well known for her award winning illustrations and her acerbic political and underground cartoons.

Mercer Union is pleased to be present Carel Moiseiwitsch in her first solo exhibition in Toronto since 1986. Moiseiwitsch will attend the opening reception and will be speaking about her work.
