ARTIST TALK TONIGHT

Propelled by concepts of movement and migration, the 2018 programming year at AGYU is woven together by artists from either ends of the Americas whose work engages real borders, thresholds, and (aesthetic) frontiers that consecrate and liberate our positions and perspectives in relation to each other and to the world. We begin this year-long thinking on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 @ 6:30–7:30 pm with Cristóbal Martínez and Kade L. Twist and YorkU academic and activist Evelyn Encalada Grez. Join in a critical discussion regarding migrant labour and food security, especially as it pertains to the entangled flow of capital, people, and produce between Mexico and USA, USA and Canada, and Mexico and Canada. The talk takes place at the Joan & Martin Goldfarb Centre for Fine Arts (CFA) Room 130, York University.


OPENING RECEPTION TOMORROW

Tunnel from south to north and back on the Art Gallery of York University’s new subway for the much-anticipated exhibition opening of US-based interdisciplinary arts collective Postcommodity! The exhibition opens with a free public reception on Thursday, January 11, from 6–9 pm.

Known for large-scale, performative, and installation-based works that hyper-perform national limits, Postcommodity’s multi-faceted production seeks to exaggerate borders and systems of control in order to emphasize their real and psychological presence. Two recent works, A Very Long Line and Coyotaje, exhibited at AGYU focus on border construction and contestation, permutation, and movement—and engage in discourses on redistribution, reconciliation, equity, and sovereignty as they pertain to the borders that extend from Mexico to the United States and to Canada.

Postcommodity (Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist) is curated by AGYU Assistant Curator Suzanne Carte. The exhibition continues to March 18, 2018.

YorkU’s MFA candidate Chole Lum and her partner Yannick Desranleau convert the AGYU Vitrines into three stages with long draped curtains. Using phototransfers on fabric, the duo expands recent aesthetic explorations: body-as-material, the inanimate-as-actor, performer-as-thing, and thing-as-performer.

AUDIO OUT Listening bench: The winter season showcases Nothing to See Here, a weekly jam session run by artist David Clark with improvisations by Raf MacDonald, Mark Hines, Jessica MacDonald, Mauve Mulroy, Harrison Brooks, and others.
