Alexis Dirks, Knee Bend 3, 2016, archival inkjet print, 9” x 11”.

The Inhabitants of Space, featuring work by artists Miles Collyer, Derek Coulombe, Erika DeFreitas and Alexis Dirks, takes its title from the dedication of Edwin A. Abbott’s satirical novella Flatland (1962), which breaks down the geographical, architectural, and social structures of the world into a two-dimensional parody. This exhibition is a Featured Exhibition for the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

The artists confront the ways in which capture and print technologies have affected how we depict, build, and inhabit spaces and images, using photographic and print-based media to process images of raw materials such as concrete, textiles, and plywood. MORE

Dorona Zierler: Wear Me
George Gilmour Members’ Gallery
Closing Reception: Wednesday, June 7, 2017, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Dorona Zierler is a Toronto-based artist and writer whose work follows a multifaceted approach that combines printmaking with drawing, photography, sculpture, and installation work. The recipient of the Emerging Jewish Artist Fellowship (2012), the Japanese Paper Place Award, and the York Bookstore Award, Dorona’s practice is strongly informed by the complexities and contradictions that emerge from the overlap between multiple social, spiritual, and artistic communities.

Group Exhibition: Field Notes
Print Sales Gallery

Field Notes is a group exhibition featuring artists Anna Gaby-Trotz, Morgan Wedderspoon and Meggan Winsley, who employ digital media as either a primary process or as a component in their work. The stories that the photographic or photo-based works tell are varied, but are centred in visual dialogue, using observations and methods of organizing to tell the images’ stories. MORE
