I’ll Show You Mine, If You Show Me Yours: Love in the Modern Age explores the intersection between interpretation, invention and expectation when it comes to internet dating. Each artists' series in this exhibition, while examining different aspects of this world wide phenomenon, is tied to using the personal to explore an experience that is niche yet universal at the same time. Whether in rural Saskatchewan or one of the largest urban centres of the world, regardless of age, race, gender, or sexual orientation, people are talking about this experience. Using three artists who media, perspective and experiences differ, I’ll Show You Mine, If You Show Me Yours: Love in the Modern Age casts a broad net to initiate a conversation on a topic that is no longer taboo but rather more of the norm.
Please note that I’ll Show You Mine, If You Show Me Yours contains sexual content that caregivers may consider unsuitable for children.
