Celebrate the opening of Like ships in the night with artist, Caroline Monnet and exhibition curator, Peta Rake. 

Walter Phillips Gallery is pleased to present Like ships in the night, a solo exhibition of existing and new work by Montreal-based, Algonquin artist Caroline Monnet. The title emerges from the idiom "ships in the night," and speaks to ideas of communication across large divides—both geographical and cultural—as well as to missed connections. The exhibition attempts to draw relationships between conversations and objects that might be obscured from one another.

Caroline Monnet is a multidisciplinary artist of Algonquin ancestry from Outaouais, Québec. Her work demonstrates a keen interest in communicating complex ideas around Indigenous identity and bicultural living through the examination of cultural histories.
