GUEST CURATOR: Ulysses Castellanos

RECEPTION: 5 May 2007

The curatorial premise for this group exhibition is to reflect the wide-ranging practices of artists in the region. Our guest curator, Ulysses Castellanos, selected works based on their exploratory character – exploratory insofar as they pose interesting questions (formally, conceptually and politically) within current artistic and broader socio-cultural contexts. This exhibition provides a forum in which to compare artistic modalities from one year to the next.

ABOUT THE GUEST CURATOR:
Ulysses Castellanos is an artist and independent curator living and working in Toronto. Castellanos creates works in video, performance including music, and is an active curator. As the curator-in-residence at Gallery TPW (Toronto, Castellanos was able to bring together the group exhibit I SEE A DARKNESS, which looks at contemporary art interested in “dark” subjects such as death, violence, the occult, and evil. In this age of global do-it-yourself communications, Castellanos looks at the way information technologies, for better or for worse, have shaped a generation of aesthetic and narrative practices.
