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.
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!
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.
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.
It’s been a while since we last posted, and that’s actually good news because we’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing response to THE NEW GODS! Take a gander at our Press page, which has seen more action over the past few months than the entire previous year. Thanks to everyone who has supported and attended the show, especially the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, NOW Magazine, Artoronto.ca, and of course the artists, Alejandro Garcia Contreras and Josée Pedneault, for their wonderful collaborative project.
This weekend is your last chance to see it during regular gallery hours if you haven’t already — we’re open Friday thru Sunday from 12–5 pm. (Note: As we are at the end of our 2014–15 program year, the show will actually remain up for a bit longer, so those who can’t make it this weekend are welcome to get in touch and make an appointment.)
The exhibition will also live on through its documentation in the catalogue, which is forthcoming. Preorders are accepted at the project space or via email to info (at) typology (dot) ca, as well as through our online shop soon. The catalogue and the fantastic limited edition archival digital print (see below) are $25 each.
Recap: HEAD TRIP! Fantastical Masks, Helmets, and More with Paddy Leung
In the week leading up to and including Doors Open Toronto, we co-hosted a wonderful two-part workshop with Paperhouse Studio, making masks, helmets, and crowns inspired by the handcrafted costumes featured in THE NEW GODS. If you missed the photo postings on our Facebook/Tumblr/Instagram pages, we’ve included a few here for your enjoyment.
The love continues for FLIGHTS & LANDINGS
A visitor to Artscape Youngplace photographed Tamara Gayer site-specific stairwell installation, 24 Hours Toronto, and his image was selected as one of the Top Ten photos of Doors Open Toronto! All three stairwell installations (including works by Janine Miedzik and Christine Gedeon) will remain on view for several more months. A limited edition archival digital print by Tamara Gayer is available (below), with the exhibition catalogue coming soon.
Thanks again for your interest and support in making this a great second year for TYPOLOGY. Stay tuned for exciting news regarding our program for 2015–16 and how you can participate in shaping our future mission and projects!
TYPOLOGY is pleased to present FLIGHTS & LANDINGS, a two-part exhibition of work by three multidisciplinary artists from three different cities: Brooklyn-based Tamara Gayer, Berlin-based Christine Gedeon, and Toronto-based Janine Miedzik. Known for their visually engaging, site-responsive approaches to installation, each artist will debut a large-scale project in one of the stairwell galleries at Artscape Youngplace (the Flights), complemented by a selection of smaller artworks representing object-oriented aspects of their practices in the project space (the Landings).
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!
