Pari Nadimi Gallery in Toronto is pleased to present a solo exhibition by OCAD Faculty of Art Instructor Joe Hambleton, born 1982 in Windsor and based in Toronto, Canada.
Sounds for the Post-Apocalyptic Man (2008) is an installation that attempts to capture the social commentary and personal reflection that takes place within science fiction. Hambleton references the Cyber Punk genre of Science Fiction, creating his vision of a futuristic Dystopia that reflects the conflict and misinterpretation of his childhood while growing up in the suburbs of Windsor. Through the juxtapostion of a series of videos and illustrations, he imagines how a series of cultural references from early 90’s television might be reinterpreted in a post-apocalyptic future and could affect the rebuilding of society. These cultural references have been chosen to represent key points in his childhood mentality, each consecutively mapping out the imagination and misconception of the time.
Sounds for the Post-Apocalyptic Man is Hambleton’s second work in a series of installations that attempts to question what autobiographical work can be. It’s his attempt to create a narrative about himself that’s more relatable and interpretable to a larger audience, while allowing him to see the long-term influence of pop-culture on his life.
Hambleton has been showing his work internationally, recently screening his previous video series, Walking Through, in Beijing (2008), Abu Dhabi (2006), Prato (2006), and Nottingham (2006).

An exhibition of works by Dorie Millerson
Dorie Millerson, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Design, will be exhibiting three pieces in the Rijswijk Textile Biennial 2013 which opens this week. A catalogue is available with text written by art historian Frank van der Ploeg.
“Twenty international artists will be exhibiting the ‘state of the art’ from the world of textile art. Their work displays a virtuoso balance between the latest technology and traditional handwork. The combination of tried and tested textile techniques such as weaving, quilting and embroidery with photography, video and digital technology results in a contemporary visual language. Furthermore, what is particularly striking is the strength of engagement with social themes among a number of the exhibitors: a powerful message cloaked in soft textiles.”
