YYZ responds to contemporary discourse about the breadth of artist support at artist-run centres by working beyond the crate and offering HADLEY + MAXWELL a residency this summer.

Currently based in Berlin, HADLEY+MAXWELL have been collaborating since they met in Vancouver, Canada in 1997, working in a variety of media including sculpture, video, installation, and sound. Their work is a reflection on the conditions of collaboration, engaging relations between public and private property, cultural history and memory. They exhibit internationally, with recent solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Göttingen (Germany, 2009); SMART Project Space, Amsterdam (2010); and Samsa, Berlin (2010); and have participated in recent group exhibitions including Invitation to an Infiltration, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2010), Manif d'art (Quebec Biennale, 2010); Kurt, Seattle Art Museum, (2010); and It's The End Of The World (As We Know It), La Kunsthalle Mulhouse, France, (upcoming). Hadley+Maxwell are represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects.

For YYZ, the artists will continue to work within the framework of a larger body of works under the title, Improperties. In this variation, they will focus on elaborating, and complicating, a threshold of figuration: separation. The desire arises from a curiosity about what kind of literal material sensibilities discernment, articulation, and criticality might lend to sculptural installation. The result will be an accumulation of varied objects and artifacts of differing significances that have been separated from themselves in some form and brought together as such.

 
YYZ ONLINE | YYZARTISTSOUTLET.ORG & YYZBOOKS.COM

We are very pleased to announce the launch of our new websites, www.yyzartistsoutlet.org and www.yyzbooks.com . These new sites reflect our interest in communicating the gallery’s activities to the public in a clear and comprehensive way. In addition to making it easier for our visitors to keep abreast and learn more about what we do at YYZ, it also provides a new, flexible medium for artists to explore through our YYZUNLIMITED initiative. Please visit and keep an eye out for the complete archives of our 31 years of contemporary art programming.

 
YYZ SUBMISSIONS | TRUST (MORE) / (LESS) FEAR

We TRUST that artists are the best curators for their own practices. We give artists the freedom to create freely and we support the production of new work. We accept risky and process-based proposals. We aren’t afraid to try things out. Don’t tell us what your project is about; tell us what your practice is about. What are you up to? Where will you go next?

 
YYZBOOKS | WRITERS

YYZBOOKS welcomes proposals from writers at any stage of their careers. We consider the act of writing to be a practice—the page is your exhibition space. Our authors and editors work collaboratively with YYZ toward a common goal: to provide a discursive forum for artists and writers and to facilitate new avenues of discourse within Canadian publishing. In an effort to attract new voices, and as we launch our new website, www.yyzbooks.com, we welcome emerging writers to pitch ideas for shorter essays for online publishing. Let us know where your research is taking you. What are the most critical discursive topics in contemporary Canadian art, and how can your writing contribute?
