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

It's Good Enough Here

It's Good Enough Here
Friday, November 9, 2007 - 5:00am to Sunday, December 2, 2007 - 5:00am

Five Canadian photo-based artists, Professor Vid Ingelevics, Lisa Klapstock, Jimmy Limit, Lisa Stinner, and alumnus Michael Taglieri, explore the diverse signatures being etched into both the natural and urban landscape. Focused on the structures and systems of order employed by our populations, with wit and intensity, the artists featured in It's Good Enough Here all respectfully embrace and explore the contemporary landscape. From parking lots to wood piles, and industrial gardens to residential gardens, the images presented serve as a record of the current stature of nature within our industrialized and developed nation.
