About Holding Patterns:

Recognizing the shifts and upheavals often associated with storage lockers, Holding Patterns explores movement, space, belonging, material culture, and transition. The exhibition investigates consumerism and the glorification of materialism, and touches on forms of marginalization in reference to issues of site-lessness, connoted by storage facilities. Storage lockers often house a unique range of objects from the precious to the useless, their contents acting as a metaphor for memory and forgetting, or the conscious and unconscious. Drawing together these varied realities of space, storage, excess, and access, Holding Patterns examines not only the personal stories, but the histories of urban development and community migration that accompany them.

In 2010 Art Spin presented their first-ever group exhibition in the same industrial building where Holding Patterns will be presented, animating a 10,000 sq ft. space. This time they are opting for a smaller footprint through a series of 5x5 to 10x20 units, and are excited to revisit this building in their tenth year of programming.

ABOUT ART SPIN:

Since 2009, Art Spin has been activating decommissioned venues and unique public spaces to produce ephemeral projects, curated exhibitions, and temporary public artworks. Programming site-specifically, across disciplines, and in interesting and alternative spaces are at the core of their curatorial mandate. In 2016 Art Spin hosted in/future: a transformative art experience, the highly acclaimed 11 day festival of art and music at Ontario Place. Led by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta, artists and independent curators, Art Spin is driven by a strong sense of commitment and passion for presenting contemporary artworks in alternative, everyday spaces in order to make its audience’s experiences with art more engaging and to reimagine the possibilities of public art.
