Research / Conversations
Invisible Violence brings together the work of four artists – Rebecca Belmore, Ken Gonzales-Day, Francisco-Fernando Granados, and Louise Noguchi – who use photography as a point of reference for histories of violence that inform a contemporary politics of representation. Designed to incite thoughtful conversations about the representation of violence and its politicization today, this multi-part project consists of: publication of the artists’ work as a sequence of 5”x7” cards; a series of discursive events conceived as points of distribution for the publication; and this web hub that archives reflections on the discussions that take place at each event.
Responding to some of the concerns embedded in artist Oliver Husain’s TPW R&D exhibition, Toronto writer, director and artist Alexander Wolfson contributes a series of posts to our growing research archive TPW R&D Online.
Reflecting on our recent co-presentation with Reel Asian Film Festival, curator Siya Chen sat down with artist Reena Katz to share a few thoughts on a some of the work in the exhibition.
Temporarily relieved of our lovely white cube, we’ve recently launched our new project space – TPW R&D – and its project website. The emphasis of my work for 2012-2013 is ramping up the demand for a critical relationship between showing and thinking.
In collaboration with TPW R&D, my research intersected with a public space, during two consecutive evenings in early October.
