"Torontoniensis: Songs from the Waterfront"
2002-03-08 until 2002-04-21
York Quay Centre
Founded in 1995, the Torontoniensis Collective has
presented exhibitions that deftly balance dark or humorous
personal approaches. This group of talented artists provides a
distinctly local and enthusiastic approach to embracing
sources and methodologies.
Whether dark or humorous, the works chosen for Songs from the Waterfront contend with age-old preoccupations of loss, alienation, betrayal and death. The artists in the current project are: John Abrams, Mark Adair, David W. Craig, Catherine Daigle, Libby Hague, Robert Houle, Tim Howe, Katherine Knight and Alistair Magee.
Using a wide range of media
including photography, sculpture, video installation and
painting, each artist creates a cohesive centre which offers an
unfolding map for the viewer. Participating in this current
project are John Abrams, Mark Adair, David Craig,
Catherine Daigle, Libby Hague, Robert Houle,
Katherine Knight, Alistair Magee and Tim Howe.
