Hidden Publication Launch: TONIGHT


Photo by Katelyn Gallucci

Hidden is the first publication presented by 23kg50lb artist collective. This limited edition book features a selection of photographic portraits by thirty-eight artists. The work was produced as a collaborative effort between Toronto based and international artists. Hidden explores the contemporary nature of the self-portrait. Artists challenge the tradition of exhibiting their face as the main component of the photographic portrait, gaining control of representation.

Hidden Publication Launch – Thursday, July 21, 2016 @ 6:30pm
The Open Gallery, OCAD University
49 McCaul St, Toronto

23kg50lb Collective – 2350collective.com
23kg50lb is a collective of photographic artists practicing around the world, producing collaborative artworks, publications, and exhibitions that bring together the cultures and ideas of its members and their communities. The Collective’s intent is to foster rewarding local and international partnerships that help bridge together emerging artists with a global platform. The members of 23kg50lb met within an international arts collaboration course through OCAD University in Toronto, TAMK University in Finland, CAU in Korea, and BTK University in Germany. Intent on continuing the project of global collaborative approaches to making artworks, the members founded 23kg50lb.

Bio:  Katelyn Gallucci is a Toronto-based artist whose work investigates the dynamics of photography and it’s ability to communicate the immediate and the abstract.

As an experimental photo-based artist, her work often combines objects with analog and digital photography techniques to communicate the relationships and paradoxes that occur with in the medium. Gallucci is interested in how these relationships, such as  (time, light,shadow, and representation), allow us insight into, the social, mental, and physical aspects of human experience.

Katelyn Gallucci received her BFA from OCAD University in Toronto, where her graduating thesis work won her the Project 31 Award. Her work has been exhibited at, Artscape Youngplace and in alternative spaces. (Forthcoming) her latest work can be seen and will be featured in the UNTAPPED Emerging Artist section of The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair (in February 2016).

Additionally, Katelyn Gallucci is the recipient of the 2016 CUE Artist Grant, which she will use to produce artworks that expand her experimental photo-based practice. This process and journey is documented on her work-in-progress blog, STUDIO CONTENTS
