Urban Gallery presents our 2016 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival exhibition – Scent of Jasmine. Photography by Toronto photographer Maha Munaf.
Artist statement: Photography is a way to tell a story and evoke a feeling. I utilize my camera as a tool to create imagery that awakens a deeper meaning beyond the obvious visual: an object through texture, a person through gesture or a place through light. My focus is bringing my subjects from ordinary to extraordinary.
Bio: Maha Munaf graduated as an architect in Abu Dhabi in 2004. Being a female photographer in a conservative society was challenging, but Maha took her camera and captured images from colourful India all the way to the Everest heights. "There are so many places to explore and stories to be told" ... more

reception 7-10pm (RSVP: gallery@alisonmilne.com)
The Painted Photograph by Dean West. Presented as a Feature Exhibition for CONTACT Photography Festival. Dean West – Some 25 years after the introduction to digital photography, this limitless era of the constructed image has become the new truth. The viewer now has a trained eye, and we expect to be deceived... Dean West plays to this automatic uncertainty in his work, as he aims to expand our understanding of image-making and human engagement with digital media. Real in depiction and imaginary in association, The Painted Photograph contains a set of rigorously composed, scenic character portrayals that merge the pictorial traditions of cinema and documentary photography. Displayed in a 16:9 format commonly used by the film industry since the introduction of high definition televisions, West's exhibition draws upon Hollywood's stylized aesthetic, presenting like large-format film stills ... more

opening reception 6pm; performance 7:30pm by Basil AlZeri (FREE bus from Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West, Toronto, departing at 6pm to the reception)
Canadian Belonging(s). Basil AlZeri, Sonny Assu, Pansee Atta, Cindy Blazevic, Vanessa Dion Fletcher, Cheryl L'Hirondelle, Kristie MacDonald, Meryl McMaster, Abdi Osman. Curated by Ellyn Walker. Canadian Belonging(s) engages the role of photographic and image-based practices in both forging representations of nation and colony, and unsettling them. Through their use of the photograph and its function as documentation, as a site for intervention, and as an archive for appropriation, the artists in Canadian Belonging(s) make visible multiple understandings of identity through the presentation of specific objects of identification. Here, the postcard, passport, scrapbook, portrait and treaty are all re-signified, subverting their settler-colonial function and instead, evidencing distinct examples of "Canadian" belonging. | Instrumental. Mark Kasumovic. Mark Kasumovic's photographs of scientific instruments and facilities offer an investigation of how advances in technology have altered the previously symbiotic relationship of photography to the material world. For opening reception Thur 5 May, please check www.artgalleryofmississauga.com for itinerary and to RSVP ... more
