Rally is a group exhibition made up of newly created works and treasures from Yves Laroche’s Gallery vault. It’s the second art show to be hosted at 12 Ossington, a new meeting place and rallying ground for Toronto’s growing creatives and innovators. The show will run from November 6 to 23, 2015

Following a sold out first exhibition at 12 Ossington that welcomed Chicago’s Hebru Brantley for Coffee Makes you Black, a 22 piece show, artist residency and outdoor mural work, comes Rally - a curated show for Toronto by artist Jon Todd, Yves Laroche Gallery and Hermann & Audrey. It’s a showcase of some of their favourite contemporaries and a rare access to Yves Laroche’s vault.

“I was a bit selfish. For Rally I decided to choose my favourite works from artists that I have respected and admired for many years, and in some cases requested new pieces” says Jon Todd, Toronto based mixed media artist and leading curator for this show. “Across geography, these artists share a similar illustrative upbringing and at times draw from similar motivations and inspirations. This is a collection that brings international game-changers and vaulted works to Toronto’s consciousness, a rare occasion.”

The group of artists from across the globe, from Brooklyn, to Berlin, to Paris, to Montreal and Toronto, share a common ground as image storytellers and execute with hyper-rendered detail, folky and at times absurdist sensibilities, all while sharing a fine art focus rooted in illustration. A style of artistic expression that was once regarded as low brow in comparison to museum works, has in recent years emerged with momentum into the contemporary art market, capturing imaginations and paving the way for a new, more inclusive, collector segment.

Art lovers will get to see works from international leading artists’ Jon Todd, Beau Stanton, Gary Taxali, Jean Labourdette, Max Wyse, Lauchie Reid, Marco Wagner, Shea Chang, Other, Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo and Miss Van. They will also benefit from the opportunity to purchase a rare collection of artwork that has not been shown together before.

Media preview is being held on Friday, November 6 from 4-6pm, with the public opening from 6-9 pm. The exhibition will run from November 6 to 23, 2015 at 12 Ossington, Toronto, from Monday through Friday, 12-5pm and by appointment by contacting rally@hermannaudrey.com. Free admission to show.
