EveryTING Irie - waves, braids & line-ups

Friday, May 2, 2008 - 4:00am to Saturday, May 31, 2008 - 4:00am

The National Film Board Mediatheque presents EveryTING Irie, including work by alumna Christina Lesile.

Leslie's photographic portraits mimic the jacket covers of Jamaican records and reggae and ska posters from the early 60s and 70s. Leslie's insertion of Jamaican text offers intimate reflections of migration and notions of settlement and a reimagined past. Waves, Braids and Line-ups uses documentary-style photography to explore the shared histories of those who visit the Black barbershops of Toronto.

Part of CONTACT Toronto Photography Festival.

Danny Custodio: Azulejos (part of Contact 2008)

Custodioimage
Thursday, May 8, 2008 - 4:00am to Friday, May 30, 2008 - 4:00am

Almada Negreiros Gallery at the Portuguese Consulate in Toronto presents the photographs of OCAD alumnus Danny Custodio.
Custodio's Azulejos provides glimpses into the life of the labourer through Portuguese ceramic tile murals. In his photographs printed onto tiles, he assumes the roles of those who laboured – not only for survival, but for the love of tending a garden and the ensuing sense of pride. This work is a means for him to piece together the tales passed down by his ancestors, and in re-enacting these moments, he adopts and perpetuates that history.
