Beyond Borders – CONTACT Photo Show – Call for Submissions

Beyond Borders is a curated exhibition of OCAD University student work from the Faculties of Art and Design. These moving and still images all defy or define boundaries, borders, margins, and edges. A lens inherently serves to create a border between artist and subject. Simultaneously, it provides a platform to describe and/or transcend and transgress physical, societal, political, personal, historical, cultural, racial, gendered constructions. While some choose to bridge borders, others may examine their defined edges. The still and moving images in this exhibition flirt with thresholds of the borders we so often struggle to define.
DEADLINE: APRIL 1, 2018

Jeff Wall symposium – Prefix – Jan 24, 7pm

jeffwall-maninmirrorPREFIX PRESENTS THE MAN IN THE MIRROR, A SYMPOSIUM ON THE WORK OF JEFF WALL

(Toronto) – Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present a symposium on the work of renowned Canadian photographic artist Jeff Wall. Titled The Man in the Mirror, the symposium provides an overview and analysis of the major tropes of the artist’s oeuvre as exemplified in his signature work Picture for Women (1979). Accordingly, the subjects addressed in the symposium encompass a broad spectrum, including the use of art-historical and literary references, the representation of women and the male gaze, and the contrast between extreme realism and elaborate artifice, among others.

Programmed by Scott McLeod, The Man in the Mirror consists of two primary components. The first is a lecture presented by Dieter Roelstraete, past member of the curatorial team for Documenta 14 and current curator of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society at the University of Chicago, and moderated by Sara Knelman, director of Jane Corkin Gallery in Toronto. The second is a round-table discussion that, in addition to Roelstraete and Knelman, features the participation of several local delegates, including Blake Fitzpatrick, chair of the School of Image Arts at Ryerson University; Will Kwan, associate professor at the University of Toronto; and Dot Tuer, professor of art history and humanities at OCAD University. These primary components are supplemented by introductory and concluding remarks by Scott McLeod, as well as opportunities for attendees to engage the delegates in Q&A and to participate in casual conversation during the associated receptions.

The lecture, which is also programmed in conjunction with the Urban Field Speakers Series, will take place on Thursday, January 24, 2019, at 7 PM, while the round-table discussion will take place on Saturday, January 26, 2019, at 2 PM. Both events will be held at Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, 401 Richmond Street West, Suite 124, Toronto.
