Hamilton-based artist Stylo Starr opened 89DAMES in the RBC Gallery, which runs until December 31, 2020. This exhibition explores the beauty of Black women from the so-called ‘glamorous’ era of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Stylo Starr strives to commemorate and preserve the light and beauty of a myriad of Black women from the past, in a current social climate that insists, rather, on demonizing and marginalizing contemporary Black women. Where history stops short at Monroe, Hepburn, or Taylor, Starr focuses her scope on the Kitts, Fitzgeralds, and Hornes of the same era that graced the covers of former weekly digest, JET Magazine. Stylo places value in becoming familiar with the faces and energies of each woman through the careful, yet impulsive manipulation of photo transfer on paper collage.

P. Mansaram | "The Medium is the Medium is the Medium"
The Art Gallery of Burlington (AGB) welcomes you back! Not only is this the auspicious re-opening of the gallery, but it is the homecoming of our beloved P. Mansaram. Thirty years after his last exhibition at the AGB, we celebrate the life and work of Burlington’s senior media artist, educator, and maverick. On view from September 11, 2020 – January 3, 2021, in the Lee-Chin Family Gallery, this exhibition is curated by Indu Vashist and Toleen Touq of SAVAC (South Asian Visual Arts Centre).
On view on the Inc.’s external Cannon Project Wall, Breaking News consists of a series of hand tinted self-portrait photographs that satirize the format and content of news reports. Through parody and caricature, heavy subject matter such as abduction, flood, disaster, televised suicide, and dictatorship are depicted in a surreal and jocular newsroom simulation. While the images are bright and enticing, the installation demands serious contemplation of how individuals in power and mainstream media work hand-in-hand to undermine the integrity and veracity of current events.
October 16 – November 28, 2020 Organized by Sally Frater and Sahra Soudi

Henri Bergson stated that “our perceptions, actual and virtual, extend along two lines…the point, at the intersection of the two lines, is the only one actually given to consciousness.” The work in MARKING TIME loosely interprets this central theme through painting, installation pieces, and found text.
Utilizing a predominantly minimalist aesthetic, these pieces suggest a metaphorical, cosmic timeline…
