Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition: “50 Years of Art” retrospective exhibition

My recent piece Amalgam (2011) will be shown as part of the exhibition 50 Years of Art: Looking Back at the Future, a retrospective look at the the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE) to mark its 50th anniversary.

Exhibition information from TOAE:

Over the fifty years of the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, more than 20,000 artists have shown at Nathan Phillips Square. In this unique and generous award programme, artists are selected by accomplished artist peer judges and acknowledged as “best” in their medium. Past “honourable mentions” include the young photographer Edward Burtynsky who was awarded second place in 1982.

How then to select artists to represent the more than 2,500 award winners recorded by the TOAE? Number of awards won?  Artists who went on to significant careers? Representation of trends in art?  High sales? Audience popularity?  It’s an impossible task, but who better than curator Jennifer Rudder, a former board member, jury chair and Executive Director of the TOAE’s annual art show and sale. She has selected innovative award winning artists and makers who push the boundaries of the status quo in their work, breaking out of medium specific conventions and restrictions. Unconventional pioneers in their field, these artists have initiated shifts in the way we view art and craft in Canada today.
