In an article written by Celio Barreto in The Culture Trip Canada, features the gallery's current exhibition "Canadian Modernism, A Group Exhibition: John Vanderpant & Contemporaries" as one of Toronto's must-see art exhibits in summer 2015.

"Why is it a must-see? Canadian photography that broke out of the pictorial box. Photography wasn’t always considered an art form. When the medium first began to take hold in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, awards were given out to talented photographers, in lieu of a traditional art market"

The real birth of this project started as an accident in the late 2000s. During that time, at the beginning of our friendship, Nathan and I were frequently asked if we were brother and sister. Initially we declined but after many outings together we noticed a pattern of speculation form, saw the potential for play, and finally ‘became’ fraternal twins. These performances consisted of precise body language (after it was noted to us that our movements and gestures, though unplanned, complimented each other’s) and the creation of spontaneous psuedo-histories of us. The project was finally manifested in photographic form in February of this year.

This series of photographs is based on Jean Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulation as well as the centuries’ old tradition of the artist’s muse. It addresses the power of performance and truthfulness both in a lens-based environment and beyond the image.

Gallery artist and Magnum Photographer Larry Towell has advice for Young Photojournalists in this Vice article by Aaron Vincent Elkaim.

"To a young Canadian photojournalist like myself, Larry Towell has always been sort of a legend. He was the first Canadian member of the prestigious Magnum Photos, an agency that rings through the halls of history. His work is about land, landlessness, and identity and he has covered stories of injustice and displacement around the world, from El Salvador to Palestine and beyond, often spending years developing his projects."
