TORONTO...For the first year, Maximum Exposure will occupy The Gladstone Hotel's third and fourth floors for the entire month of April. Outliers presents the photography of six emerging artists as selected by a distinguished panel of industry representatives. The Outliers exhibition offers an in-depth view into a body of work from these distinguished artists and acts as a precursor to the work exhibited in Fourth Year Thesis Show on the second floor at the Gladstone, opening April 27th.
Outliers will display work by Chris Dale, Elaine Chan-Dow, Monica Emme, Gio Foschino, Fraser McCallum, and Marisa Tratnik. Outliers was curated by Alice Dixon, Exhibition Coordinator of Gallery 44, and Persilia Caton, Artistic Project Manager of Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.
