New Monuments Forget the Future

July 30 - September 05, 2015
129 Tecumseth Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

In the wake of rapid urban developments populated by functional structures seemingly designed neither to offend nor impress, architecture—at one time synonymous with permanence—appears to be becoming increasingly shortsighted and transient, a response to the present as opposed to a statement for the future. Drawing on this sense of impermanence, New Monuments Forget the Future brings together artworks that reference architecture in varying degrees of flux. Rather than having solid foundation, the structures throughout the exhibition are caught in transitional states between the built and deconstructed, actual and imaginary, the abstract and representational. The exhibition is curated by Rebecca Travis, and features works by Luis Jacob, Eva Kolcze, Howard Lonn, James Nizam, Richard Storms and Renée Van Halm.
