Although this shitacular weather promises to let up, it's still prudent to meditate on shelter and habitat. A common theme and preoccupation among Atlantic artists like Adriana Kuiper, who builds bomb shelters, and Mary-Anne Wensley, whose warm, glowing shed at Saint Mary's University Art Gallery is constructed out of pig intestines, none look as cozy as this new exhibition opening at the Khyber ICA on Monday night (7-10pm). Domes, a sculptural installation by Robert Shedden and Chantal Tardiff, consists of Shedden's quilted igloo and Tardiff's enormous knitted toque that she has placed in various public settings. This is a short show, so check it out before May 2, and everyone starts wearing their giant flip-flops on Barrington again.
