FLIGHTS & LANDINGS is a Canadian Art magazine Must-See Show!
With three amazing site-specific installations in the large stairwells at Artscape Youngplace, plus a selection of smaller works by artists Tamara Gayer, Christine Gedeon, and Janine Miedzik in the third-floor project space (#302), FLIGHTS & LANDINGS has something for everyone. Visitors have been sharing their pictures all over the interwebs and we’ll be posting more pics soon — but truly, these works are meant to be experienced in person. The project space portion is open for just a few more weekends (stairwells to remain on view beyond exhibition close on April 19th). Don’t miss it!

Channeling the alien (or monster, or princess) within

Last week’s Alien Mask Workshop with Marta Ryczko was a smashing success — few are able to channel that inner stranger more enthusiastically and effectively than those in the grade school set. After a brief introduction to Ryczko’s haunting Alien/Recognition images in the exhibition, everyone set to work bringing their alter egos to life. Below are some of the soulful, spooky, or silly results, reproduced in black and white as an homage to Ryczko’s original images.

Project space update: Nuit Blanche, new hours, next event!


Happy October, everyone! We’re into week 3 with Of Other Faces, and the show continues to get a great response from everyone who visits. Manuel Saiz’s video installation featuring actors moving in synchrony with animals is a compelling (and often funny) study in nature v. culture. Victoria Fu’s elegiac film projection restores the pathos to the selfie phenomenon, while Marta Ryczko’s transformed portraits elicit equal parts fascination and repulsion. And Andrea Cohen and Wiska Radkiewicz’s collaborative sound composition is akin to an aural hall of mirrors. Don’t miss this international, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary exhibition, which continues to October 25th!
