Last chance for THE NEW GODS, plus event pics and new editions


THE NEW GODS (installation view) featuring Destiny by Alejandro Garcia Contreras, porcelain, 7.875 x 6 x 4 inches.

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.
