Our Prize-Winners in the News

Other Life-Formings, an unusual multi-media exhibition focusing on animation opens Monday January 13, 2020 at the Blackwood Gallery, at the University of Toronto, Mississauga. Laurie Kang, a past Artist Prize finalist, is one of eight artists working in the medium of animation: “the apparent bringing-to-life of the world of static objects”.
Animation, a technology of representation that “cascades still images in order to undo the perceived stillness of the image, also illuminates a fundamental relationship  between people and things–both move”. Animation forces the viewer to address the question of “who or what is living, causing us to expand our perception of liveliness”.
The  exhibition is curated by Alison Cooley.
Exhibition runs: Monday January 13, 2020 to Saturday March 7, 2020
Opening reception and performance with Daniele Barrow:
Wednesday, January 15, 5:00-8:30pm
Performance begins at 7:00pm

Kaneff Center, University of Toronto Mississauga
3359 Mississauga Road
Mississauga, ON L5L 1C6
