Gallery Artist Vid Ingelevics Undertakes Berlin Wall Project

Planning to publish a book with his findings in collaboration with a colleague, Vid Ingelevics has visited Truro to see portions of the Berlin Wall and speak with the people whose lives it has touched.

"Now, 25 years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall that once separated East and West Germany, Toronto university professor Vid Ingelevics continues on a decade-long pursuit of trying to track down as many of the pieces as he can, of what he refers to in so many words, as a moving target of fragmented pieces.

'We call it the world's largest mobile ruin because it just keeps moving,' said Ingelevics, of the countless number of pieces now scattered across the globe." - Truro Daily News

Robert Giard's Portrait of Essex Hemphill in Washington Post


"Since the mid-1980s, photographer Robert Giard has traveled the United States photographing contemporary American gay and lesbian literary figures for his ongoing portrait series, Particular Voices [...] Since Robert Giard's first portrait for Particular Voices [...] the project has blossomed to include more than 500 works. Mr. Giard conceived of Particular Voices as a personal testament to the role that writing by gay men and lesbians, and by extension, its purveyors, archivists, and historians, has played in his life." - The Robert Giard Foundation

Gallery Artist Jim Goldberg in New York Times and Marketplace World

Throughout his career, Jim Goldberg has consistently undertaken long term and in-depth collaborations. The New York Times highlights Goldberg's career success, while Marketplace looks at his work "Rich and Poor" focused on economic classes of San Fransisco.

"In a sense, it is what Mr. Goldberg has been doing over a career of almost 40 years, during which he has become revered among fellow photographers, if still not widely known by the museumgoing public. His books have become highly influential almost in their absence, many out of print and difficult to find. But a new edition being published this summer of “Rich and Poor,” a searing 1985 chronicle of lives on both sides of the economic divide in San Francisco, is likely to bring his work the kind of attention that many in the art world feel it has long deserved." - Randy Kennedy of the New York Times

Picking out the highlights of the Queen West Art and Design District, The New York Times featured Stephen Bulger Gallery in their recent article.

"Four Square Blocks: Toronto"

"The latest installment of a series about creative urban neighborhoods explores the cultural highlights of an area near downtown Toronto. Part of the city’s designated Art and Design District, this section of Queen West is experiencing a jolt of popularity and prosperity and some of the pangs of gentrification. One might even say it’s in the sweet spot between scared off and priced out. " - Julie Lasky
