CHRISTOS PANTIERAS

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Justin Case: The Enemy Within
The Diefenbunker: Canada's Cold War Museum (Carp, ON)
October 14, 2022 - February 15, 2023 (EXTENDED to March 3, 2023)

Christos Pantieras is the 2022 Artist-in-Residence for the Diefenbunker. Through a multi-layered installation and a series of reinvented propaganda posters, this exhibition explores the LGBT Purge and the resulting personal struggles of those in the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Pantieras addresses the hidden and “underground” nature of homosexuality in Canada over a period that began in the 1950s during the Cold War and continued up until the mid-1990s.

Christos Pantieras gratefully acknowledges the funding support of the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
