#HOUSEOFCOLLAGE

LILY’S GALLERY 2F – 758 BATHURST ST

House of Collage is an art exhibition featuring work by Leeay Aikawa. Opening on September 14 and continuing through September 26, the exhibition will include her oeuvre, ranging from photomontage collage using advertisements of Americana, more recent abstract collage works to some paintings that were developed from digitally composed collage, in which the artist worked across a decade. While she constantly shifts between styles, the exhibition represents the compelling and expressive nature of collage and how it has shaped the connection with each direction the artist has taken to the present. We are happy to invite you all to the creative mind of Leeay Aikawa. In addition to comprising many works which have never been seen before in public, the exhibition is unique being held at an artist-run apartment gallery in Mirvish Village, housed in one of two standing buildings on Bathurst Street. Along with the exhibition, there will be a pop-up vintage clothing show presented by Vintage Grounds curated by Lily Abraham. Visitors are encouraged to try on thoughtfully curated one of a kind attire. We look forward to seeing you at the opening party.

The participating artworks respond to, tackle, or pursue the structural approaches and components of Artificial Nature: a form of computational generative art creating artificial life ecosystems as immersive environments. The exhibition serves as a journal of how each artist brings their own stories in a new journey where they confront, tame, or react to their understanding of computation, natural systems, or immersive finesse.

OCAD U is deeply saddened by the death of Associate Professor Nancy Paterson, who has taught at OCAD U in the Faculty of Art and more recently in Graduate Studies, for the past 28 years. Nancy also worked as Facilities Coordinator at Charles Street Video, and taught at Seneca@York. Nancy achieved her PhD in Communications & Culture from York University in 2009, researching internet infrastructure and visualization. She is considered an important contributor to the cyberfeminist movement, and to the discussion of the role of gender in electronically mediated experiences.

From her recent retrospective exhibition at InterAccess, The Future: Before, curated by Shauna Jean Doherty: “Paterson’s career has spanned 30 years and her influence has been felt both nationally and internationally in the field of new media art. Through the unique application of custom-made equipment, Paterson’s works are socially critical and technically complex, expressing a feminist perspective on the impacts of technology in society.

Paterson’s activities as an artist, writer, curator, and educator have developed in many ways in parallel with InterAccess and Toronto’s electronic art scene. Over several decades Paterson has been an active member of InterAccess in a variety of capacities: as a guest curator (with the online and offline group exhibition Disembodied in 1997), featured artist (in the exhibition Game Girls in 1999 and Meantime to Upgrade in 2014), panel discussant (in the NERVEgate Conference in 1997 and the Subtle Technologies Conference in 1999) and as a workshop participant.”

Nancy is fondly remembered by her peers as “an interactive artist pioneer and feminist icon,” and as “an inspiring and unique, brilliant and valued faculty member, who will be greatly missed.” An interview with Nancy called Shifting Polarities, conducted in 2006 by Interim Vice-President Academic & Provost, Caroline Langill, can be viewed via the Daniel Langlois Foundation Collection. 

Please join Nancy's family and friends for the viewing of her video, The Cash for Cancer Lottery, at the George Brown House, 186 Beverly St., Saturday, December 8 to 12 in the Morning Drawing Room. Wekened hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; weekday hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.
