UPCOMING: External Events

Studio Member James Fowler has curated another year of the 10×10 photography exhibition showcasing Toronto’s queer creative scene.

Opening Reception:
Thursday, June 28th, 2012: 7 pm – 11pm
at the Gladstone Hotel.

Exhibition runs from June 21 – July 15, 2012

Featuring work by: R.Kelly Clipperton, Adamo de Pax, Guntar Kravis, Sue Lloyd, JJ Levine, John Monteith, Renee Navarro, Alex Nursall, Allyson Scott and Sonja Scharf

On the strength of a resoundingly successful inaugural year, 10×10 has cemented a new yearly tradition of inviting ten queer Canadian photographers to take ten portraits of LGBTQ Canadians who have contributed to the arts. These 100 portraits celebrate those who share their talents and creativity through various art forms, as well as those who work behind the scenes to support the arts.

For its sophomore outing, the 10×10 Photography Project has assembled a new roster of ten LGBTQ photographers with varied professional backgrounds and diverse approaches to portraiture. They focus our attention on some of Canada’s leading creative minds and arts professionals, shining a light on tomorrow’s brightest stars. Some of the subjects featured in this year’s exhibition include: Kristyn Wong-Tam, Vivek Shraya, David Dixon, Daniel MacIvor, Salah Bachir, Rae Spoon, Johnny Forever, Andy Fabo, Elle Flanders, Christopher House, Damion Nurse, Zoe Whittall, Ed Pien, Sook-Yin Lee, Deb Pearce, Diane Flacks, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Shauna Dempsey, Jamie Angell and many many more!!
