Future Tense Opening Reception (Artsweek Closing Party)

Sep 8 2012 – Oct 27 2012

Opening Reception:
Friday, September 14, 2012 – 7:00pm – 11:00pm

FutureTense is ARTSPACE’s second biennial Juried Member’s Exhibition. In celebration of the debut of our Media Lab, we are thrilled to present an exhibition of work from the membership. The exhibition represents a diversity of work utilizing various technologies from the obsolete to the cutting edge, from the functional to the dysfunctional. With approaches ranging from audio installation to digital animation, drawing, painting, video, and assemblage, the exhibition presents a broad portrayal of contemporary art practice.

Each of the works included in FutureTense explores an aspect of the expressive potential inherent within technology; whether that expressive potential is used to spark dialogue about technology’s ever-expanding role in our culture or to explore the personal and get to the heart of the human condition. Regardless of whether the technology is old or new; they are all, in their own way commenting on the narrative, organic, and fragmented qualities of our now ubiquitous technology-laden reality.

Contributing Artists; Lyall Brownlee, Benjamin Hackman, Beth McCubbin, Patrick Moore, Steppenwill, Michael Poulton

Check It Out / September 13, 2012 – Ben Skinner

One thing I can’t stand is an artist who takes them-self too seriously, that’s why I find it relieving when I come across someone who injects a little humour in to their work. It is a sensitive line though, too much and you can become camp or just plain ridiculous. Personally I think Canadian artist Ben Skinner has got it just right.

Canadian Art Junkie

Toronto artist Sam Shuter is fascinated by the suit. In bold colors, influenced by street art, stenciling and graffiti, she paints the strong lines of power dressing without revealing the faces of the men behind them.

“[The suit] has represented something for decades; power, productivity, strength, economic prosperity, and hard work,” the 25-year-old former film production worker says. Her larger than life art stems from her appreciation for the traditional elements of men’s fashion; a colorful necktie, a beautiful Italian boot.  Her graphic style, and bright color palette, are powerfully unconventional.

Shuter, also known as Sammo, has already attracted the attention of bespoke tailors like Toronto’s Harry Rosen, who featured her in his latest opening in a live on-site painting commissioned for the store.

Nova Scotia & Check It Out / August 10, 2012 – Sarah Burwash

There is a reason for the major lack of posts on the Electric City Art Lodge over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been on vacation. We’ll I’m back now and trying to get caught up. Usually, any time off from the 9 to 5 I get I tend to spend working in the studio but this year we decided to get away from it all and rented a small cottage on the coast of Nova Scotia. I got to catch up on some reading, doodled, did some sightseeing, drank beer and ate lobster. Great times.

The view from our cottage.


Peggy’s Cove

While in Lunenburg, a really interesting little port town about 90 minutes south of Halifax, we came across a great little shop, Dots and Loops. Dots and Loops is full of handmade goods and artists prints. I was very excited to pick up a few prints from a Canadian artist who currently resides in Lunenburg, Sarah Burwash, who’s work I really felt captured the spirit of the area. For a special check it out I’ve posted some of Sarah’s work below.
