Sangmin Lee: Holding to a better tomorrow
Holding to a better tomorrow
July 6 – July 30, 2022
Reception in Gallery: July 9, 2022
The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present Holding to a better tomorrow, Sangmin Lee’s first exhibition at the gallery.
This exhibition draws from an ongoing collection of objects accumulated from Lee’s studio practice and daily life. They are fragments of narratives within larger systems; leftovers, experiments, translations, and deconstructions/reconstructions, to pieces that make home and urban life.
Together, these narrative fragments act as points to create a constellation of objects that allow new stories to emerge—where progress is not linear and one is not without the other, somewhere between the process of becoming and entropy, of holding on and letting go.
Lee is an interdisciplinary artist born and raised in St. James Town (Toronto, ON), the densest high-rise community in Canada. Despite its shortcomings, it is one of the most ethnically rich neighbourhoods in North America and is sometimes known as “the world within a block.” His practice situates somewhere between these concrete enclosures and lived space, between walls of plaster and stories of transition. What does it mean to hold these relationships at once and find moments of stillness? Here, Lee looks to process, the unfixed, the tangential and beyond—to wander peripherally towards expanse.

The Red Head Gallery
The Red Head Gallery was established in 1990 and is Toronto’s most enduring collectively run art gallery. It has stood the test of time as an exhibition space as well as a collective where critically engaged, highly productive artists enjoy curatorial control over the presentation of their work. Over the past two decades more than 100 artists have been part of The Red Head Gallery and have produced over 200 exhibitions.
There are two accessible entrances to 401 Richmond. At the northwest corner of the building, a ramp leads upward from the sidewalk to an automatic entrance onto the building’s main floor that measures 34″ wide, and with a lip that measures 1″ high. The other entrance at the northeast corner is less evident but equally, if not more, accessible. The automatic door measures 34″ wide and inside has a gradual ramp downwards which leads towards the elevators.
