Opening Reception & Curator’s Talk: FORWARD FACING

FORWARD FACING

Opening Reception & Curator’s Talk: April 21, 2018 | 2-4 PM | FREE

Exhibition Hours: April 5 – June 3, 2018 | Critical Distance Centre for Curators (Suite 302)

Gallery Hours: Thursday–Sunday from 12–5 pm (except statutory holidays) and by appointment. Information to plan your visit or get in touch can be found here.

Critical Distance and Aboriginal Curatorial Collective present FORWARD FACING, curated by Cass Gardiner (Toronto/Brooklyn). Forward Facing examines intersectionality within Indigenous identity through the photographic, video, craft, and installation practices of Dayna Danger (Montreal), Lacie Burning (Vancouver), and Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter (Calgary).

Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island express and assert their identity in conversation with their cultural roots in a multitude of ways, and always in tandem with ever-looming colonialism. Utilizing the device of the mask, the artists in Forward Facing provoke and question how the face – or the absence of it – creates a powerful commentary on contemporary Indigenous culture.

Bike Tube Flogger-Making Workshop with Dayna Danger: April 22 from 2-4 pm at Project Studio.

Exhibition: Esther Shalev-Gerz

Esther Shalev-Gerz

Curated by Mona Filip

April 5 – June 3, 2018 | Koffler  Gallery

Hours: Tuesday to Friday 12 PM – 6 PM, Saturday & Sunday 11 AM – 5 PM, Closed Mondays & Statutory Holidays

Spring Opening Reception: Thursday, April 5, 2018 | 6–9 PM | FREE

 

Internationally recognized for her significant contributions in the field of public art, photography, and video installation, Paris-based artist Esther Shalev-Gerz consistently investigates the construction of memory, history, nature, democracy, and cultural identity. The Koffler Gallery presents Shalev-Gerz’ first exhibition in Toronto, bringing together four video and photography installations that explore memory and migration. Developed through active dialogue with diverse communities, these projects foreground participants’ individual and collective experiences.

With thoughtful, nuanced approaches to collaboration, Shalev-Gerz’s artworks confront the practice of portraiture, considering how it may address contemporary politics of representation. Examining the impact of time and space on identity constructions, places, and (hi)stories, these works record, critique, and expand the understanding of the social role of artistic practice.

Esther Shalev-Gerz (born Gilinsky) was born in Vilnius, Lithuania. Her family moved to Jerusalem in 1957, where she graduated from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. She briefly lived in New York in 1980-1981, and since 1984 she lives and works between Paris and Cortes Island, Canada. In 2010 and 2012 two major retrospective exhibitions respectively displayed ten and fifteen of her installations, first at Jeu de Paume, Paris then at the Musée des Beaux Arts de Lausanne. Space Between Time, her one-woman exhibition at Wasserman Projects, Detroit presented nine of her installations between April and July 2016. She has exhibited internationally in, amongst other places, San Francisco, Paris, Berlin, London, Stockholm, Vancouver, Finland, Geneva, Guangzhou and New York. She designed and realized permanent installations in public space in Hamburg, Israel, Stockholm, Wanas, Geneva, Glasgow and more. She is currently producing her latest permanent art work, The Shadow in Vancouver, Canada. For more information: www.shalev-gerz.net
