In Series
Propeller
30 Abell Street, Toronto

January 20-24, 2016

‘In Series’ is an exhibition that explores the material consequences of repetition. Looking beyond traditional notions of what is unique and mass-produced, it aims to show a range of scales, sizes, mediums, and techniques; the possibilities of repetition affecting change (e.g. transformation, variations, new results); and the subtlety of repetition that can produce something that appears to be the same. It asks what can result from a repeated action, pattern, or process.
‘In Series’ features the work of Victoria Chin, Nina Cho, Michael Neville, Diane Parenteau (Couple d’idées), Meghan Price, Watson Soule, Martha Sparrow, James Swain, Cathy Terpocki, Tara Lee Towers, and Jill Usher.
