CURRENT

Anne O’Callaghan: Lines in the Sky – a photographic Architectural Survey

May 25 – June 21, 2022

Anne O’Callaghan, Lines in the Sky #11, archival digital print, 2022

Lines in the Sky examines architectural details, a line, a curve, part of a façade, the displacement of space and O’Callaghan’s particular interpretations, perceptions and understanding of the constructed spaces we live in.

Anne O’Callaghan’s photographic images move between the interpretation of constructed space and the natural environment. They are part of an architecture that was and is permanent, capitalistic, and upholding a Western canon: an approach to architecture that is slowly changing.

O’Callaghan is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice spans over three decades. In creating her artworks, Anne O’Callaghan uses a range of media, including photography, installation work, video, and sculpture. O’Callaghan emphasises the idea behind an artwork over how it is made or what it is made from. She uses whatever medium she feels will be most effective in expressing a particular idea. Her work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Europe, Australia, USA and Asia. Anne O’Callaghan was co-curator of the Tree Museum from 1998 to 2016 and a member of the Intersperse Curatorial Collective. Born in Ireland, O’Callaghan immigrated to Canada in 1968.

In the autumn /winter of 2022-23, O’Callaghan will be launching a book of architectural images, exploring her personal interpretations, perception and understanding of the constructed spaces we live in from Dublin to Shanghai.

Bonus: Viewing Room @ Artsy – Kate Wilson interviews Anne O’Callaghan about Lines in the Sky and her on going practise.

UPCOMING

Yael Brotman: Bundle

June 22 – July 19, 2022

Yael Brotman, Bundle 2 + 3, 2022

Bundle Yael Brotman’s new series considers the things we collect in our daily life. Brotman asks what is precious in all this “stuff” and what would we take with us if suddenly we were displaced.

Yael Brotman has a multi-facetted practice of printmaking and print-based sculpture, drawing and installation. She incorporates imagery relating to human-made constructions, exploring unassuming structures like boardwalks, bridges and impermanent shelters.

Brotman has an active career with over thirty solo exhibitions, and many more two-person and group shows. She has exhibited both internationally and in Canada: Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art; Zweigstelle Gallery, Berlin; Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, China; lnternational Print Center New York; Print Bienale, Douro, Portugal; Art League Houston, Texas; Centro Cultural Doctor Madrazo, Santander, Spain; Haida Gwaii Museum, BC, Canada; Bienale lnternational d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières, Quebec; Kelowna Art Gallery, BC; and Loop Gallery, Toronto.

Yael Brotman lives and works in Toronto, Canada. She was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2017.


Libby Hague: Risky Business

July 20 – August 15, 2022

Libby Hague, Something New, watercolour and collage, 2022

The title “Risky Business” reflects the moment when work is almost done, showing promise, already thought of with affection by its creator, who, still unwilling to let go, pursues a last make or break gesture. Emboldened by the certainty that the world doesn’t need less than our best efforts and by curiosity, the artist throws the dice again.

The imagery grows from the fluidity of AR experiments over the past year – a perfect medium to explore ideas of transformation – where people can temporarily escape some of their own limitations.

Hague’s work examines humane and complex social relationships in our precarious and interconnected world. Her curiosity and love of invention led her to a hybrid practice of printmaking and installation. Her solo exhibitions include Every Heart can grow Bigger, Gallery Stratford; the Past is never over: a retrospective, Art Gallery of Mississauga; Inventing Hope, Idea Exchange, Cambridge, Ontario, and Sympathetic Connections at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Her recent group shows include On this Wondrous Sea, Karachi Biennale, Pakistan; International Print Triennial, Krakow, Poland; Simple Gifts in Over the Horizon, Open Studio, Toronto and MOVEMENT Toronto<>Vienna.
