TYPOLOGY is pleased to participate in the inaugural edition of the Toronto Art Book Fair with a pop-up exhibition in the project space, a vendor table in the third floor hallway, and an artist-led book arts workshop on the front lawn, hosted in partnership with Gallery 44 and generously supported by Japanese Paper Place.
TYPOLOGY is pleased to present On The Surface | Susana Reisman, featuring the Toronto-based artist’s latest findings from her multi-year investigation into the nature of wood. Encompassing aspects of both drawing and painting even as it foregrounds relationships between sculpture and photography, the exhibition includes a selection of large-scale colour photographs and several freestanding wood sculptures.
TYPOLOGY presents Script, Stage, Screen | Ciprian Mureșan, curated by Oana Tanase. Featuring a critical selection of this internationally known artist’s experimental films, Script, Stage, Screen is the first solo exhibition of Mureșan’s work in Toronto, which we are very pleased to present in partnership with the 29th edition of the Images Festival (April 14–23, 2016).
This weekend is your last chance to see Nicolas Fleming’s transformative site-specific installation, Moving right along. We are open Friday thru Sunday from 12–5 pm, and the artist will be in attendance on the Friday to answer questions and discuss his work and process.
Just in time for Back to School season, we have on offer some of the last copies of UK-based artist Miriam Elia’s limited edition publication, We Go to the Gallery, a hilarious take on contemporary art in the form of a nostalgic children’s primer.
We were thrilled to launch our guest curating program with Heather Nicol’s wonderful and intimate exhibition, A Riveder le Stelle | Mary Hambleton and Sara MacLean, and we are now equally excited to present the accompanying catalogue. Packed with images of the show and all the works in it, plus four texts exploring various forms of correspondence between Nicol, Hambleton, MacLean, and their works, this catalogue-as-conversation will be available for sale online and in the project space soon.
As 2014 winds down, we are both reflecting on what a fantastic first year TYPOLOGY has had in its home at Artscape Youngplace, and anticipating the exciting exhibitions and initiatives we’ve got planned for 2015. But before we get to our updates and invites, we’d first like to thank every one of our subscribers and followers for your continued interest, participation, and support. As the project space learns and grows, there’s much for our audiences to look forward to, including better and more streamlined communications, online shopping and submissions, and other opportunities to participate from near and far. Thanks for staying with us!
Here at TYPOLOGY, we have a growing inventory of delightful and fascinating things made by us and participating artists in conjunction with each exhibition. For Of Other Faces, this includes a beautiful 64-page exhibition catalogue (pictured above and below), an affordable two-part limited print edition (pictured at bottom of this post), a freshly pressed CD containing two collaborative sound works, and — get this! — a limited number of Alien/Recognition portrait commissions, through which you or a loved one can be immortalized in a two-part set of custom photographs created by artist Marta Ryczko using the same processes she used to create the series in the show. (Can you imagine a more perfect gift for that complex person in your life?)
Now that we are into the thick of summer, what better thing to do on break from exhibition-making than visit other wonderful exhibitions? Luckily our travels are bringing us through some good places to see shows, and we would like to share some of the best of what we come across while we are on the road.
Today’s post features an excellent exhibition at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. Titled In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice, the show is curated by Robert Knight and features thirteen artists who blur the lines between conceptual and documentary photography.
The exhibition catalogues for Leif Low-Beer’s show have arrived, and they are lovely! Featuring installation views of the current exhibition, including a hand-tipped foldout of Low-Beer’s wall-based assemblage, plus an original curatorial essay and Q+A with the artist, this publication was produced in a limited edition of 40 copies. Softcover, 6 x 9 inches.
If you pre-ordered the catalogue, we’ll be getting touch to make arrangements for pickup or delivery.

Catalogues are available for $20 (or save $5 when you purchase both the catalogue and limited edition print for $40) and can be purchased at the project space during gallery hours, Thursday through Saturday from 12–5p until May 31st.
