Join us on Thursday, April 14 at 7pm for a curator tour led by Tobias Williams of Vulgar Era, on in our Main space from March 18 – April 30, 2016. The tour will be followed by a public reception until 10pm.

Tobias Williams is a Toronto based artist and educator. His work is concerned with exploring the historic and contemporary relationship between technology, culture and creativity. His art practice is primarily based in print and digital media. Tobias graduated with an MFA from York University in the spring of 2013 and currently works as sessional faculty at OCADU and Humber College. He’s exhibited in various galleries around Toronto and has received several grants and awards, including the 2009 Don Phillips scholarship at Open Studio and a 2013 emerging artist’s grant from the Ontario Arts Council and a 2014 artist’s grant from the Toronto Art Council.

About the exhibition:
Over the last 30 years digital and internet technologies have irrevocably changed our society. The way that we create, communicate and conduct business is now almost always mediated through digital devices. This digital revolution has disrupted many aspects of contemporary life on a scale not seen since the industrial revolution.

Vulgar Era, a group exhibition featuring the work of Alessia Dowhaniuk, Trudy Erin Elmore, Alanna Gilchrist, Dahae Song, and Erin Whittier, proposes unique perspectives on how digital technology directly shapes how we interact with the world we live in. The work presents diverse perspectives on technology, identity, nature and emotion from artists who matured in a digitally saturated world.
