IN THE GALLERY
A Kind of Return
May 4 - June 22, 2019
Works by Bishara Elmi & Luther Konadu
Curated by Alyssa Fearon

A Kind of Return' offers nuanced reflections on interpersonal relationships within Black communities. Through self-portraits and photographs of close friends and loved ones, Luther Konadu challenges dehumanizing representations that have long been associated with the Black body in photography. Elmi’s work addresses the tension between displacement and belonging within relationships, particularly as it relates to the Black queer and trans experience. At their core, both artists ask: What role can relationships serve for those living in oppressed conditions? And how do those individuals find each other and build community?

Each year the Doris McCarthy Gallery invites U of T Scarborough’s annual Writer-in-Residence to peruse the Doris McCarthy Gallery Collection and identify a work of art to inspire a piece of writing. This literary contribution adds lasting, meaningful layer of interpretation to the work in the collection. 2019 marks the five-year anniversary of this partnership. Writers who have participated in this program include Nino Ricci, Helen Humphreys, Zoe Whittall, Aisha Sasha John, and Carrianne Leung. Presented here for the first time together are the texts and artworks that inspired them. 


IN THE DMG VITRINES
Selection of work from Reflections
May 24 - August 20, 2019

Curated by and featuring works by students at U of T Scarborough, Reflections explores different ways in which identity can be considered, defined, and understood – through family and inherited narratives, places that shape perspective, and ideas of wellness and self-care.

On exhibition in the DMG vitrines is selection of work from the full exhibition, presented at Cedar Ridge Gallery from May 4 - 16, 2019. The exhibition was the culmination of a curatorial work-study placement at the DMG by U of T Scarborough student Rashana Youtzy, and featured works by Reem Al-Wakeal, Regina Caeli Dela Cruz, Christopher Dela Cruz, Doro H, Jade Liao, Wei Luo, Yara Matta, Kachely Peters, Jennille Neal, and Eric Slyfield.
Reflections is the sixth in a series of annual student exhibitions presented in partnership between Cedar Ridge Creative Centre and the DMG.
