Voices: Artists on art, an artists’ project conceived by Yvonne Lammerich and Ian Carr-Harris. Part video project, part artists’ installations, the presentation brings together the narrative sketching out what the idea of contemporary can mean for artists and the public today. In photography, The Mobile Ruin documents the post-1989 movement of the Berlin Wall, both large and small fragments, from Berlin to North America. In Craft & Design, three exhibitions – Le Labo: New Perspectives in Jewellery in Quebec, Working It Out and The Deer of Nine Colours – showcase up-and-coming artists exploring inventive approaches to art jewellery, ceramics, glass and textiles.

Public Opening Reception

An artists’ project conceived by Yvonne Lammerich and Ian Carr-Harris

The present is hollow without a future aware of its past. Fifty years ago, in 1967, the National Gallery hosted 51 artists in Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square in a groundbreaking look at what contemporary art could mean for a public looking to artists to help define a national historical narrative. That narrative continues to be defined today.

In a link to that exhibition, Voices: artists on art presents a series of deeply insightful interviews that open a door into 51 studios of artists currently working across Canada in 2017, while also reminding us how powerfully expressed were the thoughts of those 51 artists in 1967.

This project is comprised of two components: a rare opportunity to access the 51 video interviews and to present artists’ multi-media installations that bridge the historical with the contemporary.

 

Voices: artists on art (vitrines)
Georgia Dickie, Laurel Woodcock, Gordon Lebredt, Jillian Ross, Liam Crockard, Dylan Macaulay, Sona Safaei, and Stephen Surlin

Part of the project of Voices: artists on art, this collection of eight vitrines pays homage to two artists whom would have been interviewed for the project had that been possible before their untimely deaths. Artists Yam Lau and Paulette Phillips respectively agreed to represent the work of Gordon Lebredt and Laurel Woodcock in two of the eight cases. As well, the inclusion of works by six emerging Toronto-based artists whose work and practices provide a glimpse into the vitality of contemporary art in this city.

 

The Mobile Ruin
Vid Ingelevics and Blake Fitzpatrick

Vid Ingelevics and Blake Fitzpatrick present a new photo-based installment of their long-term Berlin Wall project Freedom Rocks. The project began with the goal of documenting the post-1989 movement of the Wall, both large full segments and small fragments, from Berlin to North America.

The Mobile Ruin is part of the project conceived by Yvonne Lammerich and Ian Carr-Harris entitled Voices: artists on art.

 

Le Labo: New Perspectives in Jewellery in Quebec
Marie-Maude Brunet, Emilie Dell’Aniello, Gabrielle Desmarais, Catherine Granche, Annie Loiseau, Katia Martel, Isabelle Métivier, Lidia Raymond, Anne-Marie Rébillard, Karine Rodrigue, Nazanin Rostami, Véronique Roy, Marianne Séguin, Catherine Sheedy, Magali Thibault Gobeil, and Émilie Trudel
Curated by Noel Guyomarc’h

Le Labo is a project dedicated to creation, exploration, experimentation and reflection in contemporary art jewellery. Initiated in 2010 and organized over two years, the Le Labo workshop series aimed to develop processes of conceptual, aesthetic and visual research in order to open up new creative avenues. This project has led to encounters, reflection, and stimulating discussion about contemporary jewellery; it has allowed many young artists to identify the creative and expressive potential of the field. This exhibition features work produced during the Le Labo project.

 

Working It Out
Kaley Flowers, denirée isabel, Jared Last, and Emma Piirtoniemi
Curated by Melanie Egan

The convergence of making and thinking is a constant in the Craft & Design Studio at Harbourfront Centre. For our artists and designers method and meaning are not disparate; connections are made with the past and present and with an eye to the future. They’re exploring ideas of technology, identity and history; engaging with time-honoured materials and process to respond to the world around and within them. This exhibition introduces a selection of new Artists-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre.

 

The Deer of Nine Colours
Jing Huang
Curated by Melanie Egan

Jing Huang’s ceramic explorations are guided by experiences that come from living in an unfamiliar landscape, meeting different people and experiencing new cultures. Her work records the feelings and changes in her life outside her county.

401 Richmond Street West and the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers are excited to announce the 401 Built for Art Nuit Blanche Career Launcher providing exhibition opportunity inside 401’s historic building to one public art project (installation, performance, etc.) during Nuit Blanche Toronto 2018 on September 29 2018 from 7pm to 7am. 
Inspired by the entrepreneurial television series’ Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den, Dragon Tank aims to reproduce the absurd products pitched within them. With humour in mind, the artworks will function as vestiges of the most needed and most useless consumer products. In a time when ridiculous and nonsensical has become the norm, we are critical of the enigmatic ‘North American Dream’ capitalism offers to consumers and entrepreneurs alike. And question who this ‘dream’ is really for, in the context of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
