 The New York City-based artist Andrea Geyer will present a group of ne w works developed from her research on the repressed\, yet insistently pres ent history of women in the development of the early Modernist project. Dra wings\, diagrams and videos allow viewers to reflect on the influential wor k done by these early Modernists. For example\, 50 of 300 artists in the gr oundbreaking 1913 Armory show were women\, as were many funders of the show . Abby Rockefeller\, Lillie P. Bliss\, Mary Sullivan (MoMA)\, Gertrude Vand erbilt Whitney\, Hilla Rebay (Guggenheim)\, Helen Clay Frick and Katherine S. Dreier (Société Anonyme) founded the institutional pillars of Modernism in New York City. Women wrote\, painted\, curated\, organized\, drew\, danc ed\, sang\, protested and raised money. The financially fluent supported th ose with a cause. They met in salons\, exhibitions\, on boats out on the At lantic\, in speakeasies\, at dinner tables\, in bars and on the street. It was their work that allied them across class separations and cultural backg rounds. Futurism\, political reform\, feminism\, cubism\, birth control\, b lues and women’s suffrage linked them inextricably together in one of the m ost exciting and creative moments of the 20th century. Yet Geyer’s new work s don’t simply offer a revisionist history of the Modernist project. They a lso insist that the tireless work\, spirit and convictions that drove these women to create a cross-pollinating and far-reaching network across art\, politics\, education and social reform remains present wherever we closely look today. Her works invite us to rethink time\, to liberate it from ideol ogically framed histories and discover it as a radical non-linear presence and source of potential that continuously surrounds us.

ANGELL GALLERY is pleased to p resent OUTWORLD\, a series of new digital landscapes by ALEX MCLEOD. The ex hibition will be on display in the West Gallery from April 27\, 2013 to Jun e 1\, 2013.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday Apr il 27\, 2013\, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM\, with an ARTIST TALK at 3PM.

ALEX MCLEOD is internationally recognized for his large-scale images of fantastic worlds that appear at first glance to be photographs of actual d ioramas\, so palpable are the porcelain clouds\, plastic fir trees and sati n-covered mountains that populate these futuristic ghost towns. In fact\, i n McLeod’s hybrid process these forms are digitally modeled\, then printed as digital C-prints. The result is a photographic vision of an imaginary pl ace in which the patently artificial looks startlingly real.

In Outworld\, McLeod uses the video game's virtual unreality as a jumping o ff point for the creation of new territories at the extreme ends of colour. Like postcards from another dimension\, these lustrous visions of rainbow- hued crystalline islands\, shimmering artificial beaches and shadow village s tantalize with their offer of impossible worlds made manifest.

ALEX MCLEOD has a BFA from OCAD University. His work has been in exhibit ions across North America and Europe including solo shows at MASS Moca (Mas sachusetts)\, Galerie Trois Points (Montreal) and rojo®artspace (Barcelona) \, as well in Toronto at Angell Gallery and Narwhal Art Projects. His work has appeared in numerous publications\, including Canadian Art\, Blackflash and Carte Blanche 2 – Painting. Collections include Museum of Canadian Con temporary Art (MOCCA) and the BMO Financial Group.

ANGELL GALLERY is pleased to p resent MITCHELL F. CHAN: STUDIES IN MOVEMENT\, ABSENTIA\, a new series of k inetic sculptures. The exhibition will be on display in the East Gallery fr om April 27\, 2013 to June 1\, 2013.

An opening reception wil l be held on Saturday April 27\, 2013\, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.

Mitchell F. Chan is a new media artist who uses sophisticated electronics t o explore notions of presence and absence\, movement and stillness. In his latest series of kinetic sculptures\, Chan continues his use of the motoriz ed string as a point of departure. In Studies In Movement\, Absentia\, rapi dly spinning coloured elastic strings appear as transparent helixes\, volum etric yet intangible. Belying their actual nature by moving faster than the human eye can perceive\, the spinning strings exists in a quantum state: a hyperkinetic one-dimensional line in no fixed location\, producing an appa rently static three-dimensional space. The result is a beautiful illusion.< br />
Mitchell F. Chan is a visual artist based in Toronto. He has a BA in Architectural Studies from Carleton University and an MFA in Art and Technology Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago\, where he was awarded the Trustee Scholarship. He has exhibited his work as part of Luminato and Nuit Blanche\, and in galleries across North America\, incl uding at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington\, DC. Chan is the co-fou nder of the public art firm Studio F-Minus.

The Searchers is a star tling new installation in the David Braley and Nancy Gordon Sculpture Atriu m. Perched upon a high ledge\, these five contemporary sculptures modeled a fter everyday youths look down upon visitors\, activating the relationship between object and viewer. Referencing street culture\, film\, architecture and the occupation of public space\, the figures have an enigmatic presenc e. The works take their title from John Ford’s classic western film wherein male figures are often juxtaposed against an expansive sky. In contrast\, these sculptures are seated\, decidedly loitering and assessing the scene a t once.

Rhonda Weppler (born in Winnipeg) and Trevor Mahovsky (born in Calgary) are collaborative artists based in San Francisco and Vanc ouver.

For all of his military exploits as the great conqueror of m odern times\, Napoléon was equally astute as a cultural imperialist\, bring ing French art and industry to a new flowering that aimed to surpass the ac hievements of antiquity while serving to cement his power and advance his g eopolitical ambitions. Drawn from the Chalençon Collection (Paris\, France) \, perhaps the world’s foremost private collection of Napoléonic material\, The Eye of Napoléon presents some 200 rare objects that together pr ovide insight into Napoléon’s aesthetic interests\, private life\, and the remarkable achievement of French painters\, draftsmen\, and decorative arti sts working in the Empire Style.

The exhibition’s exceptional quality and range of materials and techniques demonstrates how Napoléon nur tured and harnessed the glories of French art and craftsmanship\, always wi th a special understanding of how things would be interpreted out in the wo rld. From the period’s most renowned artists—painters such as Antoine-Jean Gros and Jean-Baptiste Regnault\, and sculptors Jean-Antoine Houdon and Ant onio Canova—Napoléon commissioned signal works that imaged the pomp of his reign and diffused his likeness\, while gesturing to the cultural authority of the antique. Recalling from his readings in history that every great ru ler pervaded an era\, Napoléon likewise sought to impress his mark on every domain of the decorative arts\, exemplified in the exhibition through magn ificent examples of Sèvres porcelain\, jewellery and elaborate personal eff ects.

Also featuring personal items\, including Napoléon’s hat \, snuffbox and collapsible campaign bed\, the exhibition affords us a glim pse of Napoléon the man and functions as an object lesson on how the things with which we surround ourselves define our public identity.

The "living cadaver" might at first glance seem horrifically bizarre. In fact\, it continues the traditio n of anatomical study that became a cornerstone of artistic training during the Renaissance. The exceptional accuracy of the figure prompted art acade mies around the world to order plaster casts of it from the artist\, bringi ng the work into the ranks of the revered antique statues\, casts of which formed the basis of artistic training.

The oldest sculpture in the Tanenbaum Collection\, this Écorché or Flayed Man was an early work by Houdon\, France’s greatest Neoclassical sculptor. Houdon cre ated it while he was a Prix de Rome student at the French Academy in Rome d uring the 1760s\, and later used the same skill at precise observation in b ust-length portraits—such as that of Napoleon at the entrance to the main g alleries—that would make him famous.

Portrait photographs were wide spread in 19th-century France\, with painters often serving as photographer s themselves or as subjects in pictures that not only recorded their work\, their appearance and their workplaces\, but that also assisted them in ach ieving a heightened social and professional standing. Currently on view at the Art Gallery of Hamilton\, The Painter Pictured: French Nineteenth-C entury Paintings and Portrait Photographs provides a rare opportunity to look closely at art and at the artists that produced it\, giving viewers a glimpse into the richness of the French 19th-century art worl d. The exhibition\, which is curated by Dr. Benedict Leca of the AGH\, show cases 31 paintings and 10 sculptures mostly drawn from The Joey and Toby Ta nenbaum Collection\, matching them with rare private collection photographs of the artist who created each work.

\n

&ldquo\;This exhibition reminds us of the critical role photography played both as a medium on its own terms and as a tool with which artists defined themselves socially\,&rdquo\; said Louise Dompierre\, President and CEO of the Art Gallery of Hamilton. &ldquo\;We are committed at the AGH to a broa d-based treatment of art in all media\, highlighting the contrasts as well as connections in often unexpected ways\, and this exhibition does just tha t.&rdquo\;

\n

Each portrait photograph h as been placed next to objects of the pictured artist&rsquo\;s creation to enable viewers to experience a view of the French 19th-century a rt world across two media. From formal photographic portraits to studio vie ws to casual snapshots of artistic life\, the exhibited photographs form a visual record of some of the greatest artists of the period\, including Jea n-Lé\;on Gé\;rô\;me\, Henri Fantin-Latour\, Pierre Puvis d e Chavanne and Auguste Rodin.

\n

&ldquo\ ;These photographs restore a bit of the backstory&mdash\;the people and pla ces behind the artworks that we so often see de-contextualized in museum in stallations\,&rdquo\; said Dr. Leca. &ldquo\;They also give a perspective o n the important place of photography in relation to art and artists in the world of images in 19th-century France.&rdquo\;

\n

With the gift of The Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Collecti on of over 200 works of 19th-century European Art to the AGH in 2002\, the AGH has become recognized as an important Canadian centre for th e study of 19th-century French art.

\n

The Painter Pictured: French Nineteenth-Century Paintings and Portrait Photographs is comprised of two parts: Part 1 will remain on view until July and Part 2 will open on August 10\, 2013.
