September 20 – November 3, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday September 20, 5-7pm

McIntosh Gallery is pleased to present the first Canadian exhibition of new media work by Malcolm Pate. Pate’s practice traverses the ways in which natural systems and cutting-edge technology intersect with and illuminate one another. By applying custom software to quasi-realistic computer generated imagery, Pate references the tradition of landscape painting as well as both human and animal behaviour, creating projected images that invoke the collision of nature and culture. Referring to the colour spectrum of visible light which these works cover, 620 to 550 comprises four installations, two of which Pate created specifically for this exhibition.

About the artist:
Malcolm Pate holds a BA (Hons) in New Media Art from the Chelsea College of Art in London, UK. He has shown work at Southbank Centre, London UK; Barbican Art Gallery, London UK; Louise Blouin Foundation Gallery, London UK; the New Museum, New York; Milk Studios Gallery, Los Angeles; and Lift Gallery, Tokyo. Pate currently lives near Bayfield, Ontario.

Opening Reception: Thursday September 20, 5-7 PM

Reflecting further on the intersection of nature and culture, McIntosh Gallery presents Jeff Wall’s iconic lightbox work Steve’s Farm, Steveston from the permanent collection. Photographed on the outskirts of Vancouver, Steve’s Farm, Steveston references the history of landscape painting while depicting the liminal space where suburban development encroaches onto farmland.

About the artist:
Jeff Wall is a Canadian artist best known for his large-scale cibachrome photographs mounted in lightboxes, often referencing genres in painting that including landscape and tableaux. His work has been included in numerous international solo exhibitions including at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, England (1984), Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Basel (1987 and 1999), Vancouver Art Gallery (1990), San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art (1991), Kunstmuseum Luzern (1993), Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (1995), Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (1997), Tate Modern in London (2005), Schaulager in Basel (2005), Museum of Modern Art in New York (2007), and Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin (2007).
