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).
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!
TYPOLOGY is pleased to announce the launch of Conversations, a new series exploring research-based arts by Curator-in-Residence, Oana Tanase. Her first interview features Brooklyn-based artist, Rob Carter.
Rob Carter was born in Worcester, UK and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He received his BFA from The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at Oxford University and later received an MFA in Studio Art from Hunter College in New York. He has shown his work internationally, with solo exhibitions at Art In General in New York, Galerie Stefan Röpke in Cologne, Station Independent Projects in New York, Galeria Arnés y Ropke in Madrid and Fondazione Pastificio Cerere in Rome. He has also exhibited at Centre Pompidou-Metz in France, Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art in Japan, The Field Museum in Chicago, Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia and Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
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.
TYPOLOGY is pleased to present Moving right along, the first solo exhibition of work by Nicolas Fleming in Toronto. Appropriating the visual language and syntax of design-build practices, Fleming’s new artworks and site-specific installation transform the exhibition space, exploiting the inherent imperfections and irregular marks characteristic of construction sites to challenge the white cube environment in which they are situated. Constructing a room within a room, the artist’s sculptural gestures within the installation include curved walls and the representation of a fountain which bursts through the ceiling, its shiny finish reflecting the bright neon lighting illuminating the space.
Revealing or even glorifying the labour invested in the construction process, Fleming questions the accepted notion of pragmatism in construction work and creates an enigmatic theatre of fluid perspectives, both seductive and disturbing. Yet the overall effect, incorporating subtle touches of colour and texture, paradoxically recalls peaceful, temple-like places where the viewer may envision or experience acts and states of ritual, solitude, and duration.
Co-curated by project space Director Shani K Parsons and TYPOLOGY’s first Resident Curator, Oana Tanase, Moving right along will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue featuring an original curatorial essay and interview with the artist, plus full documentation of the site-specific installation.
On view at The Power Plant until September 7th, The Mouth Holds the Tongue is an exhibition which brings together three emerging Toronto artists, Nadia Belerique, Lili Huston-Herterich, and Laurie Kang. Invited to work collectively, the artists have taken over the space of the upper floor gallery.
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!
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).
Please join us on Tuesday, November 19th from 5–10 pm for our grand opening in conjunction with the wider Community Opening at Artscape Youngplace! You’ll find us in No. 302 on the third floor, where we’ll be debuting ERRATIC ROOM, a video installation and limited-edition photo series by Lyla Rye. The artist will be in attendance for most of the evening.
Signed copies of the ERRATIC ROOM exhibition catalogue, as well as the first in a series of low-priced limited edition prints produced by TYPOLOGY, will also be available (previews to be posted next week).
RSVPs are being accepted through Artscape for this event. See the invite below for details (click to enlarge and/or print), and visit the Exhibitions page for a full list of upcoming ERRATIC ROOM events, including a film screening, curator’s and artist’s talks, and a family-friendly holiday workshop.
