JENNIFER LAIWINT | THE PICK UP ARTIST | XIT-RM
NOVEMBER 2, 2017 – JANUARY 1, 2018

The Pick Up Artist is an investigative art project which probes into the shadowy world of Pick Up Artists - a community of men who practice a codified set of strategies, many of which promote manipulation and misogyny, for the purposes of attracting potential partners and gaining sexual success. Using video, text and performance, with The Pick Up Artist, Laiwint aims to expose and challenge the strategies used by this movement, questioning traditional notions of masculinity.

Artist Talk: Saturday, December 2, 1 PM, following the Curator’s Tour.

Jennifer Laiwint is a Toronto-based visual artist who works across the disciplines of photography, video, text and performance. Her practice takes a research and process-based approach and explores the links between self-improvement culture and social performance. Jennifer has presented her work in galleries and artist-run centres across Canada and in the United States. She curated the performance and film event Fake It ‘til You Make It in Brooklyn and recently had shows at Xpace and the SummerWorks Performance Festival in Toronto. Jennifer is excited to be presenting new work at the XIT-RM Project Space, in partnership with YTB Gallery.

The AGM is proud to partner with YTB Gallery to present this exhibition. YTB Gallery is a nomadic, D.I.Y. gallery for emergent and experimental art practices. YTB provides discursive space for critical conversations and risk-taking through new configurations of audience, artists, and community.

The XIT-RM is a project space showcasing emerging artists in the Mississauga, GTA and 905 regions, made possible with the generous support of the RBC Foundation.
