Patrick Mahon's newest exhibition extends from his longstanding practice with print media, sculpture, and art projects that engage themes of environment, and decolonization. With Messagers' Forum, Mahon addresses a world filled with beauty, contradiction, and injustice to ask two essential questions, "Can we be "Messagers" that connect, build, hope, and dream - together? And if so, "How do we reach across?" Accompanying the exhibition, in the Mezannine Gallery, is a graphic poster installation entitled, "The Questions Project". It was produced in collaboration with students from Ursuline College Chatham. The project has a timely resonance that ponders how we build community, now and in the future – whether during normal conditions or otherwise. Ultimately it asks, "Will we be 'messagers' that connect, build, hope and dream, together?"
