For the Record: Roadmaps & Diaries
Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Photography
September 13 - October 19, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday September 18, 7 - 9 PM

The proliferation of social media platforms, accessibility of photo-based applications and wide assortment of digital devices has brought forth a new generation of artists. The successive upkeep of new technology has enabled digital imagery to permeate our culture instantly. The photograph, once a source of truth and a time capsule for moments of significance is now an accessory to the daily routine that is propelled by the desire to preserve everything.

Images are frequently interjected with falsified facts and different versions of the same story. Reproductions of the same image test the value of a single photograph and assistance of digital resources distract from the intrinsic talent of the Artist. This juried exhibition asks artists in all stages of their careers to re-introduce photography as an art form within a contemporary framework.

Exhibition jurors include Susana Reisman, Artist/Co-Director at Circuit Gallery, Toronto; Darren Rigo, Artist/Head of Membership and Facilities at Gallery 44, Toronto and Megan Press, Artist/Curator at the Living Arts Centre Gallery, Mississauga.

Participating artists include: Mina Ao, Jason Brown, Catherine Chan, Philip Cheung, Brian Deignan,
Tim Forbes, Shannon Garden-Smith & Polina Teif, Cal Harben, Nicholas Kozak, Nicole Liao, Bogdan Luca,
Morris Lum, Robert Quance, Tom Ridout, Matthew Trahan
