OUTREACH Online: Envision
OUTREACH Online Exhibition
Online Exhibition Dates: July 24 – October 24, 2020
OUTREACH Online: Envision is an online exhibition showcasing the works of youth artists aged 13-26 residing within the GTA. In response to the current pandemic, Gallery 44 invited young artists to share what they have been creating, reflecting on, exploring, monitoring, and engaging with to capture the diverse experiences and feelings incited by COVID-19. In addition to providing a snapshot of the pandemic realities, this exhibition encourages participants and viewers to envision a world post-pandemic and all of its utopian and dystopian possibilities.
This project is presented in lieu of our annual award-winning OUTREACH program, an education program designed for underserved youth to explore the diverse medium of photography as a tool for creative self expression. Each July, Gallery 44 typically hosts an in-person exhibition of analogue photographs produced by OUTREACH participants. While we’ve pivoted to virtual programming for the time being, we look forward to the works of these youth artists being accessible to a larger audience via the vast and far-reaching internet.

Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography is a charitable, non-profit, artist-run centre committed to supporting multi-faceted approaches to photography and lens-based media. Founded in 1979 to establish a supportive environment for the development of artistic practice, Gallery 44’s mandate is to provide a context for meaningful reflection and dialogue on contemporary photography.
Gallery 44 is committed to programs that reflect the continuously changing definition of photography by presenting a wide range of practices that engage timely and critical explorations of the medium. Through exhibitions, public engagement, education programs and production facilities our objective is to explore the artistic, cultural, historic, social and political implications of the image in our ever-expanding visual world.
