Join us this Friday from 5–11 for a major building-wide Halloween-themed event organized by artists and organizations at Artscape Youngplace, including TYPOLOGY. See below for all the amazing stuff we have in store for all ages.
Past Present FUTURE at ESP: review by Fall 2015 intern, Katelyn Gallucci
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.
Last chance for THE NEW GODS, plus event pics and new editions
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 presents THE NEW GODS | Alejandro Garcia Contreras and Josée Pedneault
TYPOLOGY is thrilled to present a Featured Exhibition of the 2015 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, THE NEW GODS, a cross-continental collaboration between Canadian artist Josée Pedneault (Montreal) and Mexican artist Alejandro Garcia Contreras (Mexico City). Featuring an extraordinary series of large-scale photographs, THE NEW GODS examines fantastical rites of spring that have emerged spontaneously within Carrillo Puerto, an isolated village in the mountains of Chiapas in southern Mexico. The exhibition will also include a select grouping of smaller sculptures and paintings as an extension of the photographic subject matter into other media, an experimental approach which is integral to this multidisciplinary collaboration.
Things we have for you
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?)
