In the Paint – new work by Max MacDonald.
Max MacDonald, a founding member of Gerrard Art Space, has been creating his dynamic abstract gems for over 40 years. He has participated in many group / solo shows in and around the GTA. With In the Paint, MacDonald's work continues to delight with his full use of colour. Paint seems to have been applied with a brush that has choreographed a joyful and confident dance across the usual and the many unusual found objects for which Macdonald has shown an affinity in the past. We are proud to present MacDonald's third solo show at Gerrard Art Space.

walking across, talking through | Dana Claxton, Nalini Malani, Lisa Myers, Sumaira Tazeen. walking across, talking through presents the work of artists who examine the personal narratives and relationships to both land and nation that are inextricably tied to the act of moving from one place to another. These stories, which can be traumatic or triumphant, ubiquitous and yet often not shared, allow us to find common ground, and reach across and through histories and politics.

22 Oct: Infinite Landscapes. Sammy Baloji's and Filip De Boeck's work explores the past, present and future dreams of a city's inhabitants.

15 Oct: Take Flight. The cardboard sculptures in Amalia Pica's exhibition are reconstructions of acoustic mirrors built nearly 100 years ago, between the First and Second World Wars. These mirrors were intended to detect the sound of incoming enemy aircraft. In this workshop, we will design and create our own gliding airplanes using cardboard and paint. After we construct our airplanes, we will take them outside to watch them fly! http://bit.ly/2xcFEMx.

10 Dec: Billboards and Beyond. While photographing different urban sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sammy Baloji often finds billboard advertisements depicting cityscapes from Dubai and other recent hot spots from the Global South to which the Congo aspires. After discussing Baloji's interest in Congo's imagined future, we will design and create our own billboard complete with glowing lights. http://bit.ly/2hgl9sh.
17 Dec: Secret Ears. In this workshop we will consider the use of translation and miscommunication in Amalia Pica's exhibition, ears to speak of. We will begin with a brief discussion about language, sound and the history of secret codes. Then, we will construct our own cipher wheels using paper, watercolour and ink.
