Friday, February 8 at 7:00 pm
Exhibition runs until March 3 at the
Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives
34 Isabella Street (between Yonge and Church Streets)
Twelve young artists come together in this exhibition that surveys varied ways in which the human being is perceived, deconstructed, fantasized, documented, and expressed through visualizations of the human form. Painting, photography, and drawing explore both queer and broad identity performances in a range of roles, from political actor to biophysical specimen, and fantasy figure to musing mind. Artworks will be engaged in dialogue with images and artifacts from within the holdings of the Archives.
