William Eakin's Colville Coins at National Gallery of Canada

In conjuction with the Alex Colville, A Canadian Idol exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada, gallery artist William Eakin will be showing his Colville Coins series until  September 7th, 2015.

Colville Lynx 5971 (quarter), 2013 © William Eakin

"For this series, Winnipeg artist William Eakin has created monumental photographs of Canadian coins designed by Alex Colville. The coins were commissioned by the Royal Canadian Mint to mark the country’s centenary in 1967. Colville liked the idea of his art being a part of everyday life in Canada: the penny (dove) and the dime (mackerel) were at one time very common, yet very few Canadians knew they were carrying Colvilles around in their pockets. For this project Eakin gathered together a full set by painstakingly searching through bags in coin dealers’ back rooms. His photographs of these worn and weathered pieces of currency remind us that these Colville coins were once in wide circulation." - National Gallery of Canada

Carl Zimmerman Featured in International Sculpture Center Article


"...[Carl Zimmerman has] chosen this central issue of the visual availability of sculpture to be the primary pillar in his aesthetic. Zimmerman, in effect, is a sculptor who largely (though not exclusively) works at it once-removed, who cuts to the proverbial chase – to the dominance of the image of the thing, rather than the thing itself...." - Gil McElroy for International Sculpture Center

André Kertész Listed As Must-See Gallery Show in Toronto

NOW Magazine has included André Kertész: Surveillance as one of Toronto's Must-See Shows this week. If you haven't had a chance to visit the gallery yet, the exhibition will be on view until June 20th. We had the pleasure of hearing about the work first-hand last week during a visit from the owner of the estate, Robert Gurbo. After moving to New York in the 1930's from Hungary and Paris, André Kertész viewed himself as an outsider. He use photography to gain a better understanding of New Yorkers and how they functioned within their own spaces.

André Kertész in Top 10 Shows to See For Contact

"When the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival first began in 1997, anyone with a few bucks could participate. 'It was very democratic,' says Edward Burtynsky, the internationally renowned photographer and festival board member. 'It was so democratic that it wasn’t getting any attention. Other institutions weren’t really interested.'

An early move to curate themed editions started to attract cultural weight and momentum quickly grew. The festival, now in its 19th year, is the largest photography event in the world, with over 1,500 artists exhibited in more than 175 venues. The size and quality of the offerings reflects Toronto’s rise as a global hub of image-making over the past decade..." - Shaun Pett for The Guardian
