Max Streicher
Artist

Toronto
June 02, 2011

Max Streicher is a sculptor and installation artist from Alberta, now residing in Toronto. Since 1989 he has worked extensively with inflatable technology in kinetic sculptures and installation works. He has shown widely across Canada in solo exhibitions at institutions such as The Art Gallery of Ontario, Edmonton Art Gallery and the Mendel Art Gallery. He has completed several site-related projects across Canada and abroad in such places as Taichung, Segovia, Aachen, and most recently in Shanghai, Mumbai, and Reims. His inflatable works are in the collections of museums such as the ESSL Museum, The Hara Museum, and Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Streicher is currently represented by Galerie Eric Mircher (Paris), Gallery Maskara (Mumbai, India) and Ricco/Maresca Gallery (New York). His solo exhibition Apparitions opens on Saturday at The Latcham Gallery in Stouffville. He’ll also be showing this summer at La Ve Biennale internationale d’art contemporain de Melle and in The Horse Show, a group exhibition organized by the Royal Hibernian Society in Dublin.

1. Kinan Azmeh & Dinuk Wijeratne

A clarinet and piano duo, one from Damascus, the other a Canadian/Sri Lankan. Lunchtime concerts at the Berliner Philharmoniker. Yeh!

2. Ellsworth Kelly

His drawings from the 1950s at Matthew Marks Gallery. Tiny sketches that were the source material for his Reliefs (2009-2010) next door. The little drawings stole the show.

3. Slava's Snowshow

But really, Slava’s three-day long birthday party at his mill near Paris. Think Gosford Park on the Moskva. Throw in a troupe of Russian clowns! Tripe soup and vodka for breakfast.

4. Griffin Poetry Prize

A grand forum for what must be the quietest medium.

5. Orfeo & Euridice

Robert Carson’s production for the Canadian Opera Company. Not one to crow about opera, but then one doesn’t typically see something so pure and austere.
