It Takes Everyone to Know No One at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery

March 30, 2011
by Canadian Architect

Curated by Ana Barajas, this exhibition brings together works by seven artists – Lorna Brown, Jennifer Cherniack, Rodrigo Hernandez-Gomez, Chris Holman, Yvonne Lammerich, Dax Morrison, and Anne Ramsden – who propose a recontextualization of institutional methodologies. Utilizing diverse bureaucratic strategies, the works question the validity and inner workings of art institutions, and, in some instances, suggest reshaping their structure and purpose. By analyzing the institution’s archived history, functionality, organizational strategies, and physicality, the artists equally acknowledge the emergence and usage of a virtual landscape in which information and data could be newly mined, archived, and shared across geographical boundaries.  

The exhibition runs from April 8 to May 21, 2011, and the opening reception takes place on Thursday, April 7 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, University of Toronto. On Friday, April 8, a roundtable discussion on the future of art institutions takes place from 12:00 noon to 2:00pm at the Board Room at Hart House, University of Toronto. The artists will be in attendance, and admission is free. A curator’s tour takes place at 5:00pm on Thursday, April 27 to be followed by a free shuttle bus to the Doris McCarthy Gallery, University of Toronto Scarborough at 6:00pm, returning at 9:00pm.
