Ginette Legaré’s solo exhibition, SUPPLY CHAINS, will take place at BIRCH CONTEMPORARY East gallery, from October 20 to November 26, 2022, with an opening reception on Thursday, October 20th, from 6 to 8 p.m. BIRCH CONTEMPORARY is located at 129 Tecumseth Street, Toronto, and gallery hours are from Thursday to Saturday, from 11 a.m to 6 p.m.

SUPPLY CHAINS

Ginette Legar√©‚Äôs latest body of work consists of sculptures and large scale installations drawn from reclaimed metal and wire objects. These redeployed and reconfigured fragments, now linked up beyond their expired functions, re-member lived material exchanges. As such exchanges tentatively inhabit the everchanging vocabulary of discards, they silently suggest the ‚Äúchains‚ÄĚ of longings, pasts, and futures inscribed at the core of our dependence on replaceable goods and networks.

The artist acknowledges the generous support from the Ontario Arts Council.

Faculty Artist talk

Room 230 
Second Floor 100 McCaul 
DRPT Faculty Retirement Reception to Follow 

--- Diane Pugen Biography ---

Diane Pugen is a prolific artist whose long career has included multiple roles within the arts community. Through a socio-cultural and political lens, her works examine her own and society’s relationships with the lands they inhabit. She began exhibiting her work in 1965 with exhibitions locally and across Canada, receiving many Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council awards for her studio practice. She has exhibited internationally in various locations, including Havana, Cuba, Mexico City, Mexico, Santiago, Chile, Berlin, Germany, and the United States. Pugen was educated at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students' League of New York. 

Additionally, she has contributed to the¬†arts and culture community through her important curatorial work organizing impactful shows such as¬†Inaugural Exhibition, A National Survey of Contemporary Women¬†Artists, at Toronto‚Äôs Pauline McGibbon Women‚Äôs Cultural Centre,¬†Bonnie Devine: Stories from the Shield, for the Woodlands Cultural Centre and¬†Art¬†Gallery of Algoma. Most notably, she curated¬†‚ÄėHokusai Revisited,¬†featuring the work of Nobuo Kubota, which garnered him a Governor-General Award for Visual¬†art¬†in¬†2009.¬†

Throughout her career, she has worked tirelessly as an activist for¬†artists'¬†rights through her advocacy work on various boards¬†in¬†the culture sector.¬†Pugen¬†served on the board of the¬†Toronto¬†Arts Council, where she helped to develop the committee structure for their adjudication of community¬†arts grants. While¬†in¬†this role, she was also a key organizer¬†in¬†initiating¬†individual¬†artists'¬†grants and establishing¬†Artscape, the city‚Äôs space agency. While on the board at¬†CARFAC,¬† she helped develop the seminal book ‚ÄúInformation for¬†Artists‚ÄĚ and worked on the passage and implementation of the new copyright law and the TAC exhibition rights, which guarantees that¬†artists must be paid fees for public exhibitions. Additionally, her valued board contributions at¬†The Association for Native Development¬†in¬†the Performing and Visual¬†Arts¬†included curating, lobbying, and promoting opportunities for¬†Indigenous¬†artists at¬†The Centre for¬†Indigenous Theatre.¬†These immense efforts resulted¬†in¬†her receiving¬†The City of Toronto Medal of Honour for Service to the Non-profit Cultural Sector¬†in¬†1992

In addition to her artistic and advocacy work, Pugen is an Associate professor in the Faculty of Art at OCAD University, where she has taught for 31 years. She has contributed to service on integral committees across the university in such roles as co-chairing the First Year program with Nobuo Kubota, sitting on University Senate, CICOF, and as a faculty advisor with Robert Houle to the OCA First Nations Group and the Provost’s Task Force on Indigenization. Her pedagogical expertise includes printmaking, figure drawing and landscape in both drawing and painting. She has contributed significantly to the decolonizing efforts across the university, working to develop courses on the land and the relationship to the human body and by bringing in esteemed guest speakers and elders from Indigenous communities to inform the coursework.  

Most recently, Pugen was profiled as one of the featured artists in a new 2018 publication, At Home Talks with Canadian Artists, by Lezli Rubin-Kunda. In 2019 Diane Pugen was invited to write the forward to the new book From Bear Rock Mountain by Antoine Mountain, a Dene painter and writer.

Two Films By Pierre Tremblay
Max in Space: 12 Conversations with the Artist Max Dean
Louise Bourgeois Doesn't Do Interviews Anymore

ūüóďÔłŹFriday, October 21st, 3-5 pm
ūüďćAuditorium (MCA-190), 100 McCaul Street

Filmmaker Pierre Tremblay (Professor at Toronto Metropolitan University)and Artist Max Dean will be in attendance for a Q&A.

Summary of Louise Bourgeois(1911-2010)
Louise Bourgeois' life was a prolific demonstration of utilizing the creation of art as a tool for processing one's inner emotionality and psychological landscape. Working across a wide variety of mediums that included painting, drawing, and sculpture, her work dealt largely in dissecting, exploring, and reacting to the traumatic events from her own childhood that included her father's infidelity. Bourgeois' often brooding and sexually explicit subject matter and her presentation of the female viewpoint in regards to suppression, feminism, and sensuality alongside a distinct focus on three-dimensional form were rare for women artists at the time. Her single-minded devotion to expression, both as an artist and as a mentor to young artists, lent Bourgeois an international importance that remains vast, manifested most strongly through her influence on the development of conceptual and Installation Art.

 

Artist Bio - Max Dean
Max Dean was born in Leeds, England in 1949, and received a B.A. in art history from the University of British Columbia in 1971. Since then he has had a prolific career as a performance, video and installation artist, producing work that actively questions and explores the relationships between the artist, the spectator and the work of art. He has employed a diversity of materials from traditional drawing tools to cars, found objects, bathtubs, and television monitors as well as new technologies to explore issues pertaining to the psychological and metaphorical aspects of interactivity.

He has exhibited widely ‚Äď both alone and in over twenty group exhibitions ‚Äď beginning with Pacific Vibrations at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1973 - and internationally ‚Äď in England, Germany, and twice at the Venice Biennale in 1999 and in 2001 for The Table: Childhood now in the Gallery‚Äôs collection. He taught at the University of Ottawa (1979-88), and later at York University. From 1985-86, he was artist in residence at the National Museum of Science and Technology, Ottawa, and in 1996, he received the Jean Chalmers National Visual Arts Award.

 

Filmmaker Bio - Pierre Tremblay
Interdisciplinary artist, Pierre Tremblay is aProfessor at Toronto Metropolitan University, School of Image Arts. His artistic practice, combining new technologies and video, questions the world in flux, how we see and perceive. Recently completed is a film series on Michael Snow, David Rokeby and R. Bruce Elder as well as work on various new media projects: Continuum and Portraits in a sentence. Recent exhibitions of note include Dans la nuit des images, Grand Palais, Paris, and le Mois de la Photo 2009, Montreal, along with festival screenings in Canada, Italy, Australia, China and Brazil.

The recent regulated and confining pandemic years have operated to aggravate already existing anthropogenic anxieties. Climate change ‚Äď oppressive unpredictable heat waves, uncontrolled forest fires, rising oceans levels ‚Äď have had an impact on the race that both facilitated it and now roils from its effects. Aggressive urban sprawl bulldozes the land, and we search from among the rubble to find what of ‚Äúland‚ÄĚ remains. In Canada, the colonial project created divisiveness, poverty, and an early death for some, but also vast wealth and proprietorship for others. Can this unsettling situation be unraveled, or have we gone too far?
