In Solidarity. Malinda Francis, Rehab Nazzal. Presented by A Space Gallery in partnership with Trinity Square Video. In Solidarity features collaborative projects from Malinda Francis and Rehab Nazzal. Francis is a video artist who spent time in Haiti after the earthquake of 2010. She captured a grassroots international and multilingual community moving off the grid and building an "Earthship." Using recycled materials to rebuild the community school of "Sa-k-la-k-wel" – which translates into "If you survive it, you will see it" – and set in a picturesque but economically depressed location, the conical structure of the "Earthship" evokes spaceships that plan to leave earth for a more just future that we create and imagine together. Francis also includes video of Jane Finch Action Against Poverty as she follows them into the 2017 May Day march, an action that seeks greater justice right where we are. Nazzal's is a community-engaged project of Cross Stitching Solidarity using Palestinian embroidery techniques to bring people together at the Gallery to make something that is larger than the sum of its parts. Francis and Nazzal, although using disparate visual strategies, both propose a kind of transnational solidarity that implicates, resists, and creates new possibilities for Mikinaakominis / Canada.

Integral | The Ambient Paintings of Bruno Kurz.
Odon Wagner Contemporary is pleased to present the third solo exhibition of new paintings by contemporary German artist Bruno Kurz. Working primarily on reflective surfaces such as metal, Kurz's works exude luminosity, a style of painting which evokes the kind of mindless states involved in meditation. "Kurz's paintings take aspects or elements of nature, such as those of the landscape, of light, of horizons, of ice, of fields, of fog, of water, but rather than representing them, they use their raw materials to construct spiritual experiences of transcendence." – Excerpt from an essay by Donald Brackett.

Ray Mead: Orange Field.
Curated by Neda Omidvar.
A prominent member of Painters Eleven, Ray Mead (1921-1998) is a formative influence on the development of modernism in Canada. Recognized for their rich colours and bold gestures, Mead's abstractions emphasize a commitment to colour evident in his simple, yet complex compositions. This exhibition brings together paintings and works on paper from the 70s and early 80s, some of which have never been shown before.

David Wysotski: Temporarily Mine.
It's been seven years in the making. Artist and illustrator David Wysotski has meticulously crafted over forty paintings exploring our fleeting ownership of vintage hand tools. It's an impressive body of paintings with meaningful resonance – the entire suite was made on-site at the gallery. Every Monday, the gallery hosts Open Studio in the downstairs studios; a safe, positive, free-of-charge workspace for local artists and enthusiasts. David's associations weave together with the gallery, long before he began regularly creating in Open Studio. In the summer of 2017, we uncover David's long-awaited series and celebrate an exceptional regional talent in our midst.
