Jeff Thomas | A Necessary Fiction: My Conversation with George Hunter and Edward S. Curtis. Curated by Laura Carusi, Curatorial and Collection Coordinator. A Necessary Fiction extends Jeff Thomas's engagement with image-makers who have used Indigenous people as the subjects of their work, interrogating the relevance of such work in light of today's self-determination movement. Employing the work of both George Hunter and Edward S. Curtis as catalyst, Thomas presents an alternative to the hegemonic and static narratives they both construct and reinforce. Thomas explores the role such archival images have played in the quest to define his place in the world, and aims to reshape the spac of the gallery and the collections held therein into a locus for reimagining both the representation and lived experience of Indigenous peoples.

Nafiseh Emadmostofi | Burning Desire. XIT-RM. Nafiseh Emadmostofi's bold figural paintings offer up representative and allegorical examinations of ideological conflict, and the power of art to inspire protest, incite censure, and yet also speak to a collective (and contested) desire to envision a better world. Emadmostofi's work was selected from a call to graduating students from the University of Toronto, Mississauga and Sheridan College's Art and Art History Program.

Cambridge-based artist Gary Kirkham is fulfilling a one-month residency at our Preston Gallery location. Fascinated by pre-digital special effects, where worlds were created using miniatures, painted glass and optical illusions, Kirkham will be experimenting with various methods to project live onto 3D objects, floors, and bodies. In blending reality and illusion, his residency research will focus on projection as a performative action, rather than as a residual documentation.
