Interim Committee for Surface and/or Planar Re-adjustment

Wednesday, October 24, 2007 - 4:00am to Saturday, November 10, 2007 - 5:00am

Traditionally, painting completely obscures its ground, creating an
illusion that the support is not there at all. Framing delineates
between that which is painting and that which is supposedly neutral or
white cube space. The work in this exhibition will emphasize the
site and explore the experience of architectural strata, structure and
composition. Interim Committee for Surface and/or Planar Re-adjustment
is an installation-painting project with an interest in space, place,
location and layout featuring the work of recent graduates Charles
Beamish, Cameron Buy, Stephanie Curtis, Randall Gagne and Karen Kraven.

Square Foot 2007

AWOL Gallery presents Square Foot 2007
Friday, August 10, 2007 - 4:00pm to Sunday, September 2, 2007 - 4:00pm

It is truly incredible when you walk in to the installation for the first time. There are so many pieces representing so many artists, and it's amazing how differently each individual artist has used their allotted space. There are so many variations of medium, materials, application, concept, and subject matter, it is somewhat overwhelming. But the longer you look, the more you start to detect common elements, themes and ideas that run like threads throughout the installation as a whole. It is a true visual representation of the sheer volume of diverse creative energy that is present throughout our community, and our city as a whole. With the presence of so many international artists that idea is not only limited to our city, but is a true representation of diverse global creative coexistence that equates an extremely unique visual art experience.'

Stuart Reid’s Union Station installation inspires awe

Friday, April 10, 2015 - 4:00am

Seven feet tall and 500 feet long, Environmental Design professor Stuart Reid’s immense glass mural at Union Station is capturing the media spotlight. Titled Zones of Immersion, the work consists of 166 glass panels of large drawings and writing that convey the experiences of transit riders. In 2008, Reid won an international competition and was commissioned to create a permanent art installation for the new second subway platform at Union Station. The glass panels were hand painted, sandblasted and etched at a glass factory in Paderborn, Germany, and are now being installed.  

Large drawings and sketches that informed the final project are currently on display at Gallery Gevik, 12 Hazelton Avenue, until April 30. Reid will be in attendance at the opening reception on Saturday, April 11, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The monumental work is not yet completely installed and lit; nonetheless, it has been grabbing the attention of Toronto’s arts and urban affairs writers. You can read more in the National Post, Toronto Star and UrbanToronto.ca.

 

 

Engaging Ethnography: creative fieldwork in the everyday

Image of a roll of paper
Tuesday, April 7, 2015 - 4:00am to Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 4:00am

An OCAD U Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design Thesis Exhibition By: Miranda Whist

Opening Reception Thursday April 9th from 6 to 10 p.m.

Regular Gallery Hours: 2 to 8 p.m.

Engaging Ethnography attempts to address the everyday with a more fluid understanding of representation. By allowing the tacit and the intuitive to be components of anthropological research, my intent as artist-ethnographer is to communicate the affective and aesthetic nature of the everyday through more corporeal and visually explorative means.
This attempt to visualize the presence of the everyday has come in the form of audiovisual installations. Through projecting small-scale videos onto objects and spaces, Engaging Ethnography offers new (yet familiar) views of the everyday. I want to see how ethnographic consideration and artist engagement can craft a depiction of the everyday that speaks to its embodied, aesthetic and expressive qualities. Ultimately, these works are an attempt to convey a more experiential and perceptive form of communication; the goal being to highlight those understood or implied, yet not stated understandings that contribute to our awareness of the everyday.
