Archiving the Archivist: Andrea Fawcett Solo Retrospective

Presented by Greenbelt Arts

Public Opening: July 10th 1PM - 6PM 
29 McCaul St at Beaver Hall Artists' Co-op
Public viewing hours will be offered from 1-5 PM on Saturday and 1-5 PM on Tuesday

Andrea Fawcett was a Canadian artist and historian whose collection of large pieces and personal archives have been mined by curator Lauren Hunter to bring you this retrospective. Andrea travelled throughout Europe chasing the illusive brasses which fascinated her, and decoded their elaborate symbology as well as preserving them through rubbings. Her notes are collaged in an exploration of the archiving process, and the personal nexus of Andrea and her identity as a woman and an archivist is alluded to, but never made explicit. Additionally, large pieces created at disparate occasions during Andrea's lifetime are displayed together here, for the first time.

An Impeccable State | Grayson Richards

DocNow Festival

Opening June 16, 7-10 PM
(Note: Exhibition open June 14-19, 11-5 PM)

An Impeccable State is an installation drawing on found and constructed archives, a meditation on the concept of social deviance within the context of an imperial, homogenizing globalism. Working in photography, video and sculpture, Richards embarks on a wide trajectory of research and production concerning the nebulous histories of social deviance and control. From Theseus’ defeat of the Minotaur and civilization’s ‘triumph’ over ‘barbarism’; from the leprosarium to the asylum; from McCarthyism to modern-day deradicalization programs with their claims of a ‘cure’ for violent fundamentalism, An Impeccable State reflects on the attitudes, architectures and apparati – past, present and future – manifested in response to the sometimes ‘undesirable’ plurality of the human condition.

Grayson Richards is an artist living and working in Toronto. Varied in approach and medium, his projects aim to complicate totalizing narratives by identifying (often constructing) points of overlap and friction, making visible the currents of power that shape and move our histories. He holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and is an MFA candidate at Ryerson University where his research was supported by the Ontario Graduate Scholarship in 2014 and 2015.

Self-taught Canadian artist Bani Bali takes a fresh approach to the classic technique of paper cutting. Inspired by her travels, and grounded in her day-to-day activities, the artist channels her creative messages into delicate, captivating, intricately-cut pieces of varied sizes. She finds paper, the blend of natural world and human creation, to be a heightened medium in which to express her unique visual thoughts. Experience her work and ideas in person at “Cuts” – her new exhibit at The Beaver Hall Gallery, May 7 and 8, 2016.
