Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s - 1980s.
Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s - 1980s is a special exhibition of unforgettable images, opens this March at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Highlighting photographers and filmmakers working in the United States from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s, the exhibition showcases a time of intense political and cultural turmoil. Photographs by some of the greatest artists of the period – Diane Arbus, Nan Goldin, Danny Lyon, Gordon Parks, and Garry Winogrand, and others including the anonymous visitors to Casa Susanna – depict musicians, cross-dressers, biker gangs, protests, press conferences and even animals, bringing to light the complex social realities, and the yearning for greater collective and individual equality. As part of the exhibition, the AGO will be presenting films by artists Kenneth Anger, Shirley Clarke, Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie, and Marie Menken. The exhibitions is curated by Sophie Hackett, the AGO's associate curator of photography and Jim Shedden, manager of publishing. www.ago.net/outsiders.

Locrin Stewart: Timed Decay. Student Gallery. [...]. Timed Decay directly addresses the inevitable and ongoing progression of these elements through a series of analogue black and white fibre-based prints using an unstable developer.

Locrin Stewart: Timed Decay.
Student Gallery.
In a world defined by the progressive march of time, the aftereffects of its passage are only recognized retrospectively. The simple process of travelling from one instant to another goes unnoticed in transit, until one reflects backwards in time, attempting to fully understand how quickly those moments have slipped by and how unobtainable they have become.
The photochemical arts all touch on aspects of time and space. Regardless of the method of photographic capture, the subject matter, or reasoning behind the image, the dialogue between time and the space of the photograph is one of the medium's defining features. Timed Decay directly addresses the inevitable and ongoing progression of these elements through a series of analogue black and white fibre-based prints using an unstable developer. The oxidation and subsequent chemical death of the developer gradually cause a visual destruction of the image, emphasizing time's unavoidable impact and encouraging awareness of the fleeting nature of the present.

Eutopia. Curated by Farah Yusuf. Featuring work by Christi Belcourt, Coco Guzman, Happy Sleepy (Marc Ngui and Magda Wojtyra), Radiodress, Nep Sidhu, Christina Zeidler, with selections from Daisuke Takeya's Field Trip Project. [...]. Alongside socio-politically charged textiles from the Textile Museum of Canada collection, Eutopia features contemporary Canadian artists who are known for reaching beyond the confines of the gallery to directly engage communities. Working locally and globally, with elements of playfulness as well as deep cultural critique, they ask audiences to consider a multiplicity of perspectives across complex issues such as gender identities, contested political terrain, and racial oppression to express their own unique eutopia. Past to present, the ideas and impulses presented in the exhibition are not static, but constantly evolving ... more

What's your vision of a better future? What would make a "good place" for you? Is it personal? Political? Who would share it? Who would disagree?
By exploring the powerful association of fibre arts and grassroots activism, Eutopia – which refers, literally, to a "good place" eminently attainable in the real world, as opposed to utopia, an impossible ideal – offers personal and provocative answers to those questions. By highlighting a trajectory of historical textiles and contemporary art practices engaged in social commentary and the articulation of other possible futures, the art and artists of Eutopia seek to spark engagement, dialogue and debate.
The ubiquity of textiles, their relationship to collective making and an ability to convey meaning in the context of everyday life has made them vehicles for political, cultural and economic commentary for centuries. Emerging from distinct experiences of social conditions and activated by visions of social change, each of these creative statements is personal and, ultimately, political – one voice in a dynamic dialogue within and beyond the exhibition.

A Window on Paraskeva Clark.
Curator: Michelle Gewurtz (Interim Senior Curator, Ottawa Art Gallery).
This exhibition highlights work by Paraskeva Clark in the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art. Focusing on Clark's modernist aesthetics of the 1930s and 1940s, this exhibition explores how her connection to European avant-garde practices facilitated the design work she completed for Eaton's storefront windows on College Street in Toronto in 1934-35. Clark also exhibited her work at Eaton's in-store gallery. The relationship between department stores, shopping, commerce and fine art is explored in the context of an emerging Canadian modernism.

All that you touch: Autumn Chacon, Jeneen Frei Njootli, Ursula Johnson, Jaime Koebel, Lisa Myers, Melody McKiver, Gail Tremblay.
Guest Curator: Brad Isaacs (Independent).
All that you touch is an exhibition that showcases seven contemporary artists who work with unconventional materials or who use materials in a non-traditional way. Individually, their interests range from traditional connections to the land, familial and geographical histories, and the recuperation of cultural stereotypes. Together, they share an interest in the deeper meanings embedded in their chosen materials via cultural histories and contemporary practices.
Noise Cooking – a collaborative performance featuring artists Lisa Myers, Autumn Chacon and Melody McKiver takes place at 7:30pm on opening night Thur 18 Feb (following the 6pm opening reception).
