LIVE: Nicholas & Sheila Pye

The Pyes
Wednesday, January 23, 2008

This will be the first public performance by Toronto artists and OCAD alumni Nicholas & Sheila Pye, the collaborative duo whose videos and staged photographs draw on the history of performance art and vaudeville to explore tropes of auto-eroticism, narcissism, and co-dependence. Responding to themes of gender politics and sexuality in the work of exhibiting artists Steven Shearer and Andrea Bowers, they present a fable-filled world where masculine and feminine collide. Work by Nicholas and Sheila Pye has been exhibited and screened internationally and was recently acquired by the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC.

Venue & Address: 
The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery 231 Queens Quay West, Toronto, Ontario
Cost: 
$2 Members, $4 Non-Member
