Working with the form of the suffrage and union banner—a graphic combination of image, text, scale and urgency—the exhibition No Theory No Cry presents an account of how the emotional mind engages the critical. Large felt banners adorned with hand-cut text and transposed doodles are displayed suspended in front of looping and folding intestine- and brain-patterned wall drawings. A publication called A...   [more]

Clint Roenisch is pleased to open 2013 with Show Room, a solo show of photographs and sculptures by Jimmy Limit (Canadian, born 1982). Evolving out of an interest in stock photography and an affinity for the aesthetic of the ULINE Catalogue, Show Room showcases a collection of photographs and sculptures that explore the relationships between image, object, and consumption. Photographs are commonly us...   [more]

COOPER COLE is pleased to announce Static & Scrim, our first exhibition of 2013. This group show features seven New York based artists who share an interest in explorations of materiality and unique experimentations of media. Each of these artists exploit action, chance, and observation to create a variety of visceral results. The exhibition is a contemporary meditation on traditional strategie...   [more]

Blind Scribbles is an exciting and luminous new series of paintings by Françoise Sullivan which continues to explore the gestural abstraction for which she is renowned. Sullivan’s new series of lush paintings revisit automatism in a way which reveals its current relevance. Making a mark or “scribble” with her eyes closed, she builds a painting, filling the canvas with shimmering colours. This is aki...   [more]

Time is long. Time is short. Things begin. Things recede. Some things repeat, over and over again. And as nearness becomes more difficult to perceive and everything once distant is brought closer through technologies – the self may be the only remaining site by which to measure ourselves.   I think of these artworks as pictorial constructs, a rustic modernism, encoded with an urban patina of long...   [more]

In his second solo exhibition at Jessica Bradley Gallery, Jon Sasaki explores his interest in the pathos and humour of the banal. In some of these works he returns to the mythic stature of the Group of Seven painters that inspired his 2011 exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The Group of Seven’s artist palettes, now enshrined in the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, have become fetish objects...   [more]

Using photography, paint and collage, Falkenberg creates a sudden stillness, a stopping point, a clearing within a suspended and expanding moment. She begins by photographing landscapes; ambiguous yet familiar in-between spaces that are simultaneously wild and polluted, inhabited and abandoned, then collages night, day, upside down and right side up to create environments where time and place col...   [more]

For twelve self-resonating Fender Stratocaster guitars shadowing a classic rock radio station Discipline focuses on the electric guitar as the iconic musical instrument of the 20th century and an object of obsession. The model of guitar used in the installation—twelve of them in bright colors, brand name hardly needing to be mentioned—was designed in 1954 and remains essentially unchanged as a s...   [more]

Kyla Mallett: How to See and Read the Aura These works began as a tangent to Mallett’s Self-Help work. In collecting second-hand self-help materials, she encountered a book entitled How to See and Read the Aura which fell under the category of parapsychology and new-age healing. This text became a key element to her research in self-help, which Mallett expanded on in this body of work centred ar...   [more]

The exhibition is comprised  of 11 large-scale photographs of altered Rand McNally Streetfinder mapbooks, that were originally transformed 15 year ago by the artist. Each photograph depicts the first page of the book, in which all of the information of the map had been removed except the expressways, highways and major roads. What remains was a complex, abstract latticework of road networks that are layer...   [more]

In Monica Tap’s first appearance at MKG127, she exhibits two new paintings, just back from a solo exhibition at the String Room Gallery in Aurora, New York. These paintings originate from low-res cell phone video captured on road trips. Tap explores the forensics of time made possible by digital video. Slow frame rate, fast motion, high contrast, and low light push the camera past normal limits and...   [more]

Dead End is a monumental wall painting created by means of a modular stencil painting system. The stencils were generated from hundreds of photographs the artist has taken of crudely rendered faces found on graffitied surfaces in locations across Canada and the United States. Dudiak’s painting explores individuality and dissent in a modern urbanized milieu by contrasting the transgressive public...   [more]

This group exhibition of new British art diversely posits a schism between the Modern and Contemporary through the spectacle of redevelopment, urban shrines, sexuality and celebrity culture. With allusions to the grotesquely beautiful and exploring the darker side of kitsch, Are You Alright? reveals a trend of disillusionment with contemporary British society.   [more]
