KEITH LANGERGRABER | YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN

You Can't Go Home Again will explore various facets of science fiction fan culture as it intersects with personal utopias. The project will critique the utopian gesture of the lone male seeking out places of isolation, away from the civilizing impulses of society; conjuring up a period of creativity, as well as loneliness, alienation and moral disintegration. Merging sci-fi references with documents that chronicle a solitary sea voyage and personal revelation, this installation will complicate assumptions about what it means to be "a fan" across disciplines. Employing new theories of fandom, the exhibition will open up a range of possibilities in regards to consumption, production, criticality, and play.

KEITH LANGERGRABER received his BFA from the University of Victoria and his MFA from the University of British Columbia. He has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows in Canada, the United States, and Asia since 1995. He has received many grants and awards for his work, including being on the long list for the Sobey Award in 2009. Langergraber's work grows from an interest in social, cultural, and political change found through scrutiny of a selected site. His research allows for an understanding of the shifts that have taken place at a location over time. His exhibitions consist of the accumulation and reconstitution of information through the peeling back of layers of the vernacular landscape. Langergraber is currently teaching at Emily Carr University (BC).

JULIE LEQUIN | TOP 30

For her first solo exhibition in Toronto, Julie Lequin presents a selection of chapters from a new multidisciplinary video installation which condenses each year of her life. Effervescent with humor, storytelling, error and wordplay, Top 30 weaves the line between autobiography and fiction.

JULIE LEQUIN is a French Canadian artist. She received a BFA from Concordia University and an MFA from Art Center College of Design. In 2007, 2nd Cannons Publications published Lequin's first book and DVD project The Ice Skating Tree Opera - Director's Cuts. Her work has been screened and exhibited internationally at venues such as the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum in California, La Centrale Powerhouse in Montreal, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Art in General and White Columns in New York City. Lequin is the 2011 recipient of the Joseph S. Stauffer Award, an honor given by the Canada Council for the Arts. Lequin is happily living and working in Montreal.

JACOB HORWOOD | DETAIL WITHOUT A DRAWING BOARD


Horwood developed these series of screenprinted one and two-off pieces with little emphasis on design. He wishes to demystify the idea that in screenprinting, a piece of art is first designed in its entirety, and then produced. The execution of the work and its composition is completed almost entirely in the studio by the artist. This stresses the practice itself, relying on trial and error, as well as color harmony to create new work. This series is a more spontaneous practice, and utilized as little source material as possible.

JACOB HORWOOD is a Toronto-based visual artist who works in printmaking, publishing, and sound art. In 2004, he co-founded the experimental sound art record label Beniffer Editions. It has released over 110 hand-made artist multiples on various formats, including LPs, books, box-sets and cassettes. Horwood is the administrator of Punchclock Printing and works as a specialty screen printer, assisting other artists and designers interested in the full realization of their ideas. He is also one-half of music concrete duo Gastric Female Reflex, who have released music and toured internationally. Horwood's work is informed by process based painting techniques applied to screen-printing, visual after image demonstrations, re-appropriation, and artist multiple presentation.
