- ICON – SoTeeOh Solo Show
April 27 – May 14, 2017
What are the symbols that are immediately and universally identifiable as Toronto icons? As Toronto’s reputation grows, and global awareness of the city rises, a set of visual identifiers has been developed that symbolize this city both locally and abroad. The CN Tower has long been the most obvious icon but views of the downtown core popularized by urban photographers, the Raptors jersey made famous by Vince Carter and signage at Yonge and Bloor subway station which is passed by 400 000 commuters on a daily basis have become important symbols of the city.
ICON will focus on photography of visual identifiers that residents can place at first glance and that out-of-towners recognize as distinctly Toronto. Drawing off personal experience, historical research, anecdotal experiences, commercial products and pop culture references such as movies and music videos, soteeoh has created a set of images that represent the visual identity of the city. With a diversity of photographs, ranging from iconic product photos, recognizable city views and intersections, cultural landmarks and people. This exhibition continues SoTeeOh’s exploration of Toronto’s developing visual identity through portrait, still-life, product, and urban landscape photographs.
SoTeeOh is a Toronto-based photographer focused on stylized views of daily urban life. Drawing inspiration from the realms of design, architecture, and fashion, he creates images that share a sense of urban grit through an emphasis on symettry, pattern, and color. SoTeeoh has amassed a significant following, with over 60 thousands followers on instagram, he has also worked on commercial projects with notable brands like Adidas, Nike, Sony, CIBC, American Express, Red Bull, and many more. SoTeeOh is represented by Art Works Consulting.
- TL;DR Laura Hudspith – Solo Exhibition
Laura Hudspith – solo exhibition at Project Gallery
Exhibition dates: Thu, May 18 – Sun, May 28
For the final exhibition at our Queen Street East location, Project Gallery is pleased to present Laura Hudspith’s second solo exhibition, TL;DR.
Hudspith transforms the gallery into a dramatic installation combining sculpture, video projection, and neon, where light emanating from each work illuminates the next. Her projected tableaux vivant depicts a near motionless woman amidst both real and faux, fresh and rotting delicacies, conjuring a sense of stagnation and tension. A large unmarked grave across the gallery’s floor pulses light and sets a synthetic overgrown garden aglow, its dense flora saturated with viscous biofluids. Neon light casts the flippant message ‘tl;dr’ across the scene, and creates a sense of an impassable force.
Upon discovering her own incongruous memory of a passage written by Alice Munro in Lives of Girls and Women, where the young protagonist misunderstands the gravity of a gruesome truth and instead envisions an implausible alt-reality, Hudspith staged and filmed her own elaborated version of this illogical error. In her tableaux, a woman lays on a cold marble tabletop amidst a feast. The figure is at once hyper-sexualized and neutered, her body revealed underneath a clear plastic dress so tight as to flatten her curves. Fruit begins to rot, pink milk sours, a glass of black liquid is overturned. What’s left reveals its synthetic nature – a silicone aspic, plastic fruit, pink rubber tarts – and the woman in the dress remains breathing lightly.
The artist is interested in the effects of cultural trends on the way people understand the world’s workings and their agency within it. In particular, Hudspith contemplates the effects of individualist culture on radicalization and the growing divide between socio-political ideologies. Using a feminist lens through which to examine this divide, TL;DR creates a picture of contemporary communication caught in between cause and effect, dialogue and the echo chamber, life and death, gender and equity, and naivete versus the explicit.The artist would like to extend a special thanks to Tamara Legér for her contributions to photography and videography, and writer, Ashley McLellan, for her exhibition response.TL;DR Laura Hudspith – solo exhibition at Project Gallery Exhibition dates: Thu, May 18 – Sun, May 28 For the final exhibition at our Queen Street East location, Project Gallery is pleased to ...

- Where No One Will Find Us – Alli Boddy Solo Exhibition
Exhibition: Fri, February 3 – Sun, February 26
Reception: Fri, February 3 6-10pm
Alli Boddy’s solo exhibition ‘Where No One Will Find Us’ explores the intersection of figure and landscape. Inspired by her personal connection to nature, her figure/landscape narratives represent the lived experience. Her subjects, which include herself and those close to her, all appear to exude a freedom of spirit. Alli is a strong believer in nature’s ability to transcend and portrays her subjects not gazing at the viewer, but focused in their own moment, venturing off into forests or teetering on cliff’s edge.
