First, to northern Manitoba to live among the tree planters, then the Galapagos Islands as an eco-warrior volunteer, and most recently, the Arctic, where she spent time on a double-masted Norwegian sloop touring the northern tundra and pack ice....." - Murray Whyte, Thestar.com

In his new book, "Queer," photographer Sunil Gupta gets Indians to come out like you've never seen before

Years after coming out to his parents, Sunil Gupta’s mother would, in passing conversation, still ask his friends, "Can you find him a wife?"

Gupta's father, an ex-military man, told him that being gay is “a phase and you will grow out it."

A series of autobiographical "documentary" photographs and other such conversations fill photographer Sunil Gupta’s coffee-table book, "Queer", published by Prestel and Vadehra Art Gallery earlier this year...." - Himali Singh Soin

Gallery Artist Sanaz Mazinani review in San Francisco Gate

Artists Who Won't Have to Scramble - The 2011 Stanford University MFA Exhibition

"This weekend offers the last days to catch the work of this year's graduating students from Stanford University's Art Department with "Scramble," an exhibition of work by five graduating artists for their final MFA Thesis. Given the stature of past graduates, Stanford's program seems to attract that already-accomplished artist who desires the credential of an MFA, which makes its shows a bit different than many other local schools. As it appears every one of the graduating MFA class already possesses a pretty solid track record of exhibitions, grants, and awards, it isn't surprising the work is at a high level. Artists Boo Chapple, Jacqueline Gordon, Dorian Katz, Sanaz Mazinani, and Jerome Reyes present a very polished thesis show that addresses topics of site, gender, identity, culture, environment, and heritage...." - JD Beltran

Gallery Artist Sunil Gupta article in The Hindu

Sensitive gaze


"Activist and photographer Sunil Gupta tells why gay activism and politics remain crucial to his lens

This is how it works usually. A photographer picks up a subject, sticks to it for some years, then moves on to work on yet another subject which captures his/her fancy. However, Sunil Gupta has remained fiercely loyal to one subject. From the 1980s, when he captured a sort of photo-narrative depicting his partner as hobby, to date when Gupta has dedicated his lens to the issue of gay identity and politics. We ask like so many so often ask him. Is it because he is an insider, a gay himself that nudges him to keep telling their stories?....." - Shailaja Tripathi

Sarah Anne Johnson: Arctic Wonderland Opening Reception Tonight!

The gallery is pleased to present its third exhibition of work by Sarah Anne Johnson.

SARAH ANNE JOHNSON Arctic Wonderland

Exhibition Dates: June 16 – July 16, 2011
Opening Reception: June 16th, 5pm-9pm

During October 2009, Sarah Anne Johnson (b. Winnipeg, Manitoba, 1976) participated in an artist’s residency on board a double masted schooner in the Norwegian territory of the Arctic Circle. Each of the twelve days at sea the group visited a different site on land, ranging from untouched vistas of pure landscape to abandoned mining camps. The photographs she took have become the basis for her new body of work entitled “Arctic Wonderland.”


Cheerleading Pyramid, 2011

She described the experience as

amazing, it was exotic, breathtakingly beautiful and sublime. It seemed so pristine and perfect, vast and strong, but also somehow delicate and fleeting. After such an experience, one can’t help speculating about the impact we have on this planet. We are in the process of creating irreparable damage to the earth and will soon have no choice but to gamble on increasingly dubious theories. A favorite theory of engineers as a last resort to stop global warming is the blocking out of the sun. With this body of work I have been assessing and questioning western ideas of progress, growth and innovation. What are we progressing toward? Where does innovation lead us? How big can we go? What will it mean for us to take over the sun? Not only for the environment, but also psychologically for us, what will that mean?

To explore these concerns I have painted, photo shopped, embossed and used printmaking on the photographs I took during the expedition. I do this to create a more honest image. To show not just what I saw, but how I feel about what I saw.


Fireworks, 2010 (collection: Granite Club)

The imagery is celebratory with an ironic underside. Fireworks, confetti, cheerleaders and banners inhabit the landscape. Wonderland has the double meaning of referring to the brilliant beauty of the landscape, but also the absurdity of some of the notions of how to colonize this place. “Arctic Wonderland” will be Johnson’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, the first being selections from “Tree Planting” in 2005, which was recently exhibited at the Guggenheim in “Haunted: recent acquisitions in photography and video”.


Ripple, 2010

Each of her exhibitions has been conceived as an installation and has been acquired in their entirety by a public museum, including the Guggenheim, Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography / National Gallery of Canada. This is the first project that is comprised of free standing independent works. Johnson lives and works in Winnipeg, Canada and received her MFA from Yale University. She was the recipient of the first annual AGO/Aeroplan Grange prize. Her work has also been exhibited and collected by numerous international public institutions.

Robert Bourdeau Interview in National Post

June 12, 2011 - B12

Art from the ashes


"Ghosts haunt the work of photographer Robert Bourdeau. His spectral, black and white photographs of empty landscapes and abandoned industrial sites are absent of people, yet traces of them remain: The low, stone walls that criss-cross the fields in Yorkshire, England (1985). A small sculpture resting on a bamboo forest floor in Japan (2005). A pond full of chopped-down tree trunks, floating on the surface like corpses, in Ontario, Canada (1981). Bourdeau, who was mentored by famed U.S. photographer Minor White, has been shooting for five decades, yet his new book, The Station Point, is the first truly comprehensive survey of his work. He spoke to the Post's Mark Medley from his home in Ottawa.

Q Although you've been a photographer for five decades, you weren't a full-time photographer until 1985. What did you do before then?

A I was an architectural technologist.

Q Do you think you're still learning your craft?

A Craft? Well, I'm learning my vision more and more all the time. The craft just comes along with it. I think I have a good mastery of the craft itself, whether it's black and white or colour...." - National Post

This45: Satu Repo on documentary photographer Vincenzo Pietropaolo

By Satu Repo

"In the fall of 1973, a young photographer arrived at the office of This Magazine with some remarkable photos of strikers outside a small Toronto factory called Artistic Woodwork. Immigrant workers, organized by the Canadian Textile and Chemical Union, were striking for their first contract. The photos were remarkable in both their intensity and intimacy. You were face-to-face with these men, solemn but determined, exercising their right to organize. You couldn’t help but share the photographer’s clear empathy for them..." - Satu Repo (This Magazine)

The images – from the pages of the Women’s College Hospital nursing school yearbooks – appear innocuous at first.

Artists Revisit Troubling History of Women's Health in Canada

"Toronto Women’s College Hospital is celebrating its centennial this year and marks the occasion with a photography exhibition called Being She: The Culture of Women's Health Through the Lens of Wholeness. Despite the many advances made in women's medical care over the past century, inviting women to weigh in on healthcare is a courageously self-reflective way for any hospital to celebrate a landmark year. An open discussion about women’s healthcare means confronting the medical industry's chilling complicity in denying women reproductive rights, moral panics around women's sexuality and the great divide between those who offer care and those who receive it...." - Sasha Van Bon Bon


This exhibition Being She will be at the Gladston Hotel from June 9th - June 15th. The opening reception is on June 9th from 7:30 - 10pm.

INCEPTION

Dir. Christopher Nolan (USA:2010) 148 min.
