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.

Nickolas Muray and Frida Kahlo were at the height of their on-again, off-again, ten-year relationship when these pictures were taken.

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]

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]

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]
