Daytime Exhibition Tour: Helen Cammock at Oakville Galleries

Join us for a daytime tour of our Winter exhibition, Helen Cammock: They Call It Idlewild, led by Associate Curator & Registrar Theresa Wang.

Recipient of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women and a joint recipient of The Turner Prize, British artist Helen Cammock has a multi-disciplinary practice that stretches across film, music, print, performance, and text. For her first exhibition in Canada, Oakville Galleries is showing Cammock's They Call It Idlewild, a film and text installation that considers the notion of idleness, both its potential as a profoundly generative space of creativity and sustenance, and the political misuses, structural power play, and racial stereotyping that surround it.


This tour will take place in person at Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square. Meet at the gallery at 10:20 AM. The tour will begin at 10:30 AM.

This is a free event, advance registration through Eventbrite is required.

The exhibition is on view from 28 January to 13 May 2023. For more information, visit
