Angela Grossmann, New Doll, 2017, Mixed Media on Paper.

Curator: Lynn Ruscheinsky, PhD  |  January 17 - March 9, 2019
Artist & Curator In Conversation: Friday, January 18, 12:30 - 1:20 pm

The 68 works by senior Canadian artist Angela Grossmann address the role that performance plays in the transgression of gender and social expectation, the stigma of the unruly body, and the disciplinary power of shame.

Throughout her career Grossmann has sought to re-create and re-dress the marginalized, the misunderstood and dispossessed with her strongly “feminist” dynamic mixed media works that intervene in both the physical form and visual experience of subjectivity. Troublemakers continues with this project exploring concepts relating to the “wanting to be” and “not wanting to be” of identity.

Angela Grossmann is a Vancouver-based visual artist. Over the last two decades her paintings and collages have been the subject of more than 20 solo shows in Canada, the U.S. Europe and Japan beginning with the Young Romantics Exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery (1985). The Art Newspaper (June 2006) included Grossmann on a list of 100 artists who have most influenced students at art schools in Britain (culled from 11 leading British art schools). Recently her work has been featured in three Vancouver Art Gallery exhibitions including Unreal that showcased her miniature surrealist paintings. A series of her collages were featured in a solo booth at ArtToronto 2015. <more>

Jaime Angelopoulos, Eurydice, 2015, plaster, paint, foam.

Curator: Ivan Jurakic
January 17 - March 16, 2019

Toronto-based artist Jaime Angelopoulos is known for her spirited explorations of form and colour. Her sculptures and drawings share a complementary yet complicated relationship. On the surface, the artist wrestles with aspects of abstraction and anthropomorphism, and the works exhibit a kind of joyful exuberance, but they also operate on a deeper social and psychological level.

Jaime Angelopoulos is a Toronto based artist who has exhibited widely with recent solo exhibitions at the MacLaren Art Centre (Ontario), Judith Norman & Alix Art Gallery (Ontario), Parisian Laundry (Montreal), MKG 127 (Toronto), and Musée Regional de Rimouski (Quebec). She received her MFA from York University and studied sculpture at Meadows School of the Arts (Dallas, TX). She was awarded the inaugural Hazelton Sculpture Prize in 2013 and has participated in numerous artist residencies including KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre (Finland). Her work can be found in numerous collections in Canada and internationally. The artist would like to acknowledge the Musée Regional de Rimouski and the support of the Ontario Arts Council. <more>

A Meditation on Dürer’s Melencolia
January 17 - March 16, 2019
Artist Talk: Thursday, February 7, 12:30-1:20 pm

Taking Albrecht Dürer's 1514 print, Melencolia I as an inspiration and starting point for an installation work, Hamilton-based artist Michael Allgoewer deconstructs Dürer's image into discrete sculptural elements; with oblique references to Judd, Johns, Kiefer and Beuys. The exhibition includes nine recent sculptural and mixed media works.

Michael Allgoewer was born in Montreal in 1954. He lived and worked in several provinces and studied briefly at the Ontario College of Art in the mid 1980s. Since then he has shown extensively in solo and group exhibitions, in both public and private galleries. His work ranges from installation, emphasizing a connection with history and myth, often incorporating recontextualized found material; to paintings which are abstract and rigorous in concept and execution. He is represented by b contemporary gallery in Hamilton, Ontario. The Artist would like to acknowledge the support provided through the City of Hamilton Enrichment Fund. <more>
