Marc Loiser at Nuit Blanche

Marc

Come out and engage with Photo Faculty  Marc Loiser’s Toronto Nuit Blanche installation!

Marc Losier is a Toronto-based artist, whose work revives histories, documents, and materials as a means of destabilizing standpoints and perceptions.  He has participated in visual arts residencies at The Banff Centre and the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California, and his works have been exhibited in both Canada and the United States.  In 2013, he was the recipient of a Toronto Arts Council emerging visual artist award, and has been awarded Visual Artist Project Grants from both the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts in 2015 for his on-going project, Échange (Exchange)/Post(e).  He currently teaches at OCAD University and has previously taught at Ryerson University’s School of Image arts, as well as the San Francisco Art Institute as a visiting faculty member in Photography.

Losier is co-founder and co-director of the inaugural 2015 Art Camp with artists Robyn Cumming and Jennifer Long, a free visual arts residency that brings together a select group of students from OCAD University and the School of Image Arts during the summer for workshops, field trips, studio visits with contemporary artists, and a group exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel Ryerson Artspace.

Congratulations Nicholas Pye!

PYE

Curator’s Office is pleased to present the first US solo exhibition of Nicholas Pye entitled Rise And Fall. Art critic Sky Goodden writes, “Following two decades of entrenched collaboration with his former partner, Sheila, Nicholas Pye has recently re-branded himself as a “solo artist” in the lucid series Rise and Fall. Framing his subject (himself) in a state of halting re-assertion, a suite of sunlit, lambent photographs pictures Pye in various postures suggesting potential and romantic ideation. Staring out a window, lying prostrate on a table, bearing down on a desk, all with the hazy French hills grounding his off-book performance, Pye embodies our Neomodernism: a wincing sincerity, an attempt at unapologetic self-accounting. An avidity for the unbent truth in things, if ever it was apparent.”

Nicholas Pye also comes to Washington, DC to celebrate a Nick & Sheila Pye work that was recently acquired by and currently featured at The Phillips Collection in their Intersections@5 exhibition. There will be a catalog release party at The Phillips on Thursday, October 1 at 6 pm. Pye will speak about The Coronation, which is currently on view.  http://www.phillipscollection.org/events/2015-10-01-phillips-after-5

In an ongoing endeavor to present international contemporary artists in Washington, DC beyond the traditional white cube setting, Curator’s Office has launched a salon/exhibition project at the Bethesda home of owner and director, Andrea Pollan. After a series of gallery pop-up shows in DC in Columbia Heights at Studio 1469  and numerous art fairs, Curator’s Office is expanding the presentation strategy. Gatherings of an intimate nature and focused presentation balance the bustling energy and demands on viewers of large international art fairs.
