Tak Pham: Theatre of Disjunctions

Sunday, March 27, 2016 - 4:00pm to Sunday, April 3, 2016 - 10:00pm

Theatre of Disjunctions responds to the disappearance of historic architecture in due to socio-political turmoil, inadequate maintenance and negligence. Local artists Lizz Aston, Marina Fathalla, Layne Hinton and Carson Teal help rethink architectural preservation through curatorial practice. The exhibition re-examines the relationship between art and politics during an investigation of Toronto theatre architecture and its contribution to the city’s gentrification effort in early 1990s. The exhibition stages a comprehensive experience speaking to the conditions of people who are marginalized and rejected in the history of modernization. Each artwork contemplates and reflects different lines of narrative in the collective historical psyche inside the gallery’s adaptive-reused architecture of the former transit loop.

Vernissage, Tuesday March 29th, 6pm – 9pm

Amy Meleca: Notes on an Eternal Return

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 - 3:00pm to Thursday, March 24, 2016 - 10:00pm

Notes on an Eternal Return is an exhibition of photo-based self-portraits – or more specifically, ‘performative self-images’ – acting in support of a Master of Arts thesis paper of the same title. In this exhibition, ‘photograph’ and ‘self-portrait’ become loosely defined through the performance-based process of photographic self-representation. My image is recorded and then layered, fragmented, distorted and reassembled in order to disrupt traditional ways of looking and interpreting representations of the female body. By playing along the spectrum of visibility and invisibility, presence and absence, coherence and incoherence, singular and multiple, I present myself as a spectral subject, a collection of traces, acting in constant resistance of containment through the reiteration of my self

Amy Meleca is a Toronto-based artist and researcher, currently in her second year in the Interdisciplinary Master’s of Art, Media, and Design program at OCAD University. Amy completed her BFA in Print Media with a minor in Psychology at York University in 2014.

Insignificant Surfaces: a screening of videos by Colin Clark

Saturday, March 19, 2016 - 12:00am to 3:00am

The Loop Collective and Arraymusic co-present an informal screening of recent digital videos by Colin Clark. These durational videos quietly sound the cinematic technicity of the sea, trees, plants, animals, and people.

This event continues our series of screenings in 2016 celebrating the Loop Collective's 20th anniversary.

Colin Clark is a video artist, composer, IAMD MFA candidate, and design researcher at OCAD University’s Inclusive Design Research Centre. Since 2011, he has produced a growing body of digital videos that explore the relationships between technology, nature, and time, often incorporating custom-made image and sound processing techniques. His music has been performed by Arraymusic, the neither/nor collective, the Draperies, and his own ensembles, Lions and Fleischmop. Colin's soundtracks for experimental films by Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof and R. Bruce Elder have been shown at film festivals internationally. He has curated exhibitions with the Loop Collective featuring the work of Chris Welsby, Michael Snow, John Cage, and others. Colin also develops Flocking and Aconite, web-based creative software tools for sound synthesis and video processing used by artists and musicians around the world.

2016 Sculpture/Installation Thesis Exhibitions' Series: Half a Grapefruit is a Full Circle

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 - 4:00am to Friday, March 25, 2016 - 4:00am

As part of the OCADU Sculpture and Installation program, Michelle Foran will be putting on her first solo exhibition at Birch Contemporary.

Opening reception: Thursday, March 17 - 6 to 8pm

Artist Statement:  Order, like all things, has an anti, which is the dismantling of itself through entropy, like shortcuts, desire lines and IKEA hacking. Using found materials such as industrial piping, plaster and plastics my work draws connections between the abstract and the factual. These seemingly mundane materials adopt new dispositions through a re-contextualization in the attempt at reversing the role of entropy. The separate pieces in this installation merge together to appear illogical but through their illogical representation become systematic. Half a Grapefruit is a Full Circle transforms found objects using vibrant colour and choreography that results in their new and heightened presence.
