Yesterday is Melting encapsulates a relentless pursuit of public agency in the face of colonial power, systemic oppression, and increasing genesis amnesia. Each work implicates audiences to acknowledge how we observe and participate in history. Sandy Williams IV strikes a balance in tension—interplaying the untouchable and the malleable, the passage of time and the infallible memory, the transparent and the concealed.
Additional works by ANTIESTABLISHED (Kate Turner, Warren Jones, and Williams), Mariana Parisca, and Monsieur Zohore respond to Williams’ engagement in the emancipation of public space. Together their disparate works unravel common structures of power and repression in the Americas.

Join us for a very special Mother's Day Anne Experience. Feel the maternal connections with Anne Shirley and Marilla Cuthbert as you explore the world of Anne of Green Gables in a behind-the-camera tour of the Pickering Museum Village, the set of various 'Anne' productions for almost forty years.
Enjoy a picnic lunch, taste a scone as you blend your own tea, and listen to an audio tour with Anne recounting some of her favourite memories. Visit the historic houses and learn about Lucy Maud Montgomery and historic fashions from Anne's time. Take part in a painting workshop as you bring the past to life in this fun experience.
