We’ve got so much good stuff coming up at the space and in the building that we have to share over multiple posts. Here’s our March update — stay tuned for more news and our April exhibition announcement coming soon. Make a note, mark your calendars, and COME!
IN HOUSE: A BENEFIT EXHIBITION FOR PAPERHOUSE STUDIO
LOOSE ENDS | MARY GRISEY, FAYE MULLEN, JÉRÔME NADEAU, DEBORAH WANG
January 14 — March 6, 2016
Each decay is a form of transformation into other living things, part of the great rampage of becoming that is also unbecoming. It is cruel, it is death, and it is also life, degeneration and regeneration, for nearly all living things live by the death of other things.
— Rebecca Solnit
TYPOLOGY is pleased to present Loose Ends, curated by Noa Bronstein and featuring sculpture, video, and photo-based works by Mary Grisey, Faye Mullen, Jérôme Nadeau, and Deborah Wang.
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.
We are thrilled to welcome Katelyn Gallucci to TYPOLOGY as our curatorial intern for Fall 2015. For her first exhibition review, she visited Erin Stump’s new location on Dupont Street to see their inaugural exhibition.
Past present FUTURE is a three-part exhibition co-curated by Kristen Weckworth and Erin Stump at ESP’s new 1558 Dupont Street location. The first exhibition, FUTURE, (closing October 10th) is a group show featuring work by Katie Bethune-Leamen, Fastwürms, Maggie Groat, Cameron Lee, Annie MacDonell, and Susy Oliveira.
As a way to thank you, our faithful mailing list subscribers, for your continued interest and support, we’re offering a FREE Polish Papercutting Workshop with artist Maria Flawia Litwin this Saturday from 12–3 pm at Paperhouse Studio! This is a $55 value plus you’ll gain mad papercutting skills that you can use for the rest of your gift-giving life!
We’ve just posted a list of six (!) upcoming events for The Lowest Relief | Maria Flawia Litwin, including this Saturday’s Afternoon with the Artist — drop in anytime from 12–5 pm for refreshments and casual conversation with Maria, who will be at the project space to discuss her exhibition and answer questions about her art and process.

The summer edition of Xpace Cultural Centre’s annual program is on view for just a few more days, until August 22nd. The main space exhibition, curated by Emily Gove, features four artists whose work bridges worlds of idealized femininity with re-imagined universes of great complexity, charm and disorder. The show’s name references early the 1990s feminist zine Girl Germs, a publication whose poems, stories, and mix tape listings fostered the expansion of the Riot Grrrl movement across Canada and the United States.
If the image from our last email seemed strangely familiar, it’s because we neglected to swap out the previous exhibition shot with an image for the new one. Arrgh – sorry about that!
To make amends, we are taking this opportunity to share a few bonus photos of some of Mary Hambleton’s wonderful work in the show. The exhibition will feature 20 of her works on paper, plus a large painting also by Hambleton, and an immersive video installation by Sara MacLean.
Hope to see you at the opening next Thursday! A Riveder le Stelle, curated by Heather Nicol, runs January 22–February 22, 2015.
TYPOLOGY is thrilled to announce the launch of our guest curating program with A Riveder le Stelle, a two person exhibition. Featuring rarely seen works on paper by the late New York painter Mary Hambleton, and a video installation by Toronto-based Sara MacLean, the exhibition is curated by interdisciplinary artist and independent curator Heather Nicol.
Taking its name from the final line of Dante’s Inferno (1314), A Riveder le Stelle, “to gaze once more upon the stars,” is conceived as a virtual conversation between two artists, separated by time, place, and practice, whose work nevertheless manifests striking formal and conceptual correspondences. Among the many such convergences are a mutual interest in the body, the scientific gaze (particularly as it relates to diagnostic medicine), relationships between the infinitesimal and the celestial, and the sense of wonder such scrutiny engenders.
Installation views from THE ORDER OF THINGS or, The Second Conference of the International Network of Personal Relationships can now be seen on the Exhibition page gallery here. Scroll down and click any thumbnail to enlarge and view captions.
Thanks to everyone who came to see the show and special thanks to the artist, Leif Low-Beer, for a great exhibition. To see more of his work, check out his website, leiflow-beer.com
TYPOLOGY is now closed while the director continues her maternity leave over the summer. Our next exhibition, featuring five local and international artists working in video, sound, and photography, will open Thursday, September 18th. Stay tuned and/or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and now Instagram for updates and invites coming soon!
