How Do I Look?
11 Feb 2017 – 9 Apr 2017
This selection of artists’ self-portraits from the Mount Saint Vincent University Collection addresses both the experience of being looked at by others, and that of returning the gaze. As a corollary to their engagement with practices of looking and appearing, these self-portraits also tackle the frameworks of race, gender and sexuality.
Tove Storch Sculpture
25 Feb 2017 – 9 Apr 2017
The new work proposed by Storch engages with the gallery’s two-storey architecture, deploying a forest of narrow metal rods to span the distance between floor and ceiling with an effect similar to that of a drawing. It incorporates the formal paradox typical of Storch’s sculpture, wherein the physical concreteness of the elements belies the optical variability of their appearance.
