The Social Male [Centre 3]

Morgan Kamocki Allaby: The Social Male  

Morgan Kamocki Allaby is an artist currently based in Southern Ontario. His work explores masculinity as constructed through interaction and personal traits. The hybrid figures in this body of work, portrayed with line drawings and silhouettes, have distinguishing features that set them apart from each other. These differences, such as size or strength, generate a subtle conflict and suggest the weight of gendered visual cues. Morgan’s work has been exhibited in Banff, Toronto and Hamilton.

Repetition & Difference [Centre 3]

Fatima garzan: repetition & Difference 

Fatima Garzan’s art practice spans across painting, printmaking, and installations. Her experimentation with an array of materials has led her work to divergent and unexpected concepts. She investigates into two aesthetic themes: geometric shapes and colours. Continuing with various printmaking methods in combination with painting and collage, Garzan explores the language of pattern, colour, and form to discover the relationship between materials and the finished work. Her work has a roughness and makeshift quality. Her investigation of the circles and lines has its own momentum. She works with different materials from original and digital prints to Mylar and vinyl on various supports.

Art Crawl: Friday, March 13, 7:00-10:00 pm [site-specific performance]

Visual Poetics of Embodied Shame is a multimedia installation and participatory performance exhibition by Montreal based artist, Chun Hua Catherine Dong. Dong’s practice navigates the diaspora by challenging notions of gender and identity embedded in traditional Chinese culture. Through a feminist dialogue employing the body, Visual Poetics of Embodied Shame examines patriarchal values embedded in Chinese culture employing East-Asian shame culture as a lens. Dong’s cultivation of issues related to Chinese culture expands discourse on how contemporary Chinese women are perceived and treated within Chinese and Western socio-political spheres. Through presenting and re-enacting the seminal life experiences in the works presented, Dong is able work through them, empowering herself and contributing to the growing empowerment of contemporary Chinese women.

Becoming Rivers [Centre 3]

Gu Xiong: Becoming Rivers

co-presented with -Home (Hyphenated Home)

Curated by Hitoko Okada

-Home (Hyphenated Home) is a group exhibition, co-presented by Centre[3] and Workers Arts and Heritage Centre, that explores how the hyphenated identities of first generation immigrants locate the complex notion of home in the liminal spaces between displacement and belonging.

The participating artists use installation, mixed media, print, and fibre to visually narrate the challenges of migration, marginality, political asylum, divided geographies, and cultures in relation to how identity and home intersect as they inform the evolution of one another.

Chance Encounters [Centre 3]

Chance Encounters

An Exhibition by Jason Potter

As a locally born and raised street photographer in Hamilton Ontario, Jason Potter’s principal interests are the ever changing sites of the typical city street and the moments that lie within. Jason captures spontaneous moments in the lives of ordinary people, and in some cases, animals. Everything is unscripted and these moments happen only once. Jason studied photography (film and digital) at the Dundas Valley School of Art for the past five years. In 2013 Jason was awarded the Hope Lee Scholarship awarded for academic and artistic excellence. This is Jason’s first exhibition here in his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario where everyone will get a glimpse of the Hamilton city streets through his eyes.

Hamilton’s Hidden Secrets [Centre 3]

Hamilton’s Hidden Secrets

An Exhibition by Terrance R Pack

As a documentary style photographer, Terrance R Pack has always had a fascination with the history of Hamilton, primarily the back alleys throughout the city. Terrance would wander endlessly though the alleys looking at bricked up basement windows,  crumbling asphalt, broken window panes and try to imagine what it must have been like back in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s and what stories lay beneath it all. It doesn’t take long before he hears the echoes of the past come to life. Terrance documents the back alley ways of downtown Hamilton to bring Hamilton’s Hidden Secrets to life for everyone to see. Terrance R Pack studied photography at the Dundas Valley School of Art and has had his work primarily exhibited locally in Hamilton, Ontario.
