THROUGH A TIRED EYE
Retino-blastoma, monocular tunnel-vision, extreme light-sensitivity, floaters, flashers, blepharitis, capsular opacification… Through a Tired Eye is Bruce Horak’s interpretation of how he sees the world. Using acrylic, oil, canvas, sculpture, sound, and light, Horak moves art off the wall and into the space for an immersive, tactile experience.

CONSTRUCTED IDENTITIES
Constructed Identities, a major show of new work by Persimmon Blackbridge, uses mixed media wood carving with found objects to question how disability is framed as a fracturing of ordinary life rather than a normal, expected part of it. Her exploration of the figure begins in disability, but necessarily complicates itself as our embodied identities intersect and overlap.

THROUGH A TIRED EYE 

January 24 – February 23, 2019

Retino-blastoma, monocular tunnel-vision, extreme light-sensitivity, floaters, flashers, blepharitis, capsular opacification… Through a Tired Eye is Bruce Horak’s interpretation of how he sees the world. Using acrylic, oil, canvas, sculpture, sound, and light, Horak moves art off the wall and into the space for an immersive, tactile experience. The portraits and landscapes give the viewer a unique experience of the world as the artist sees them. They can be felt and heard in a new and dynamic way.

OUTLIERS ON TOUR

Outliers on Tour is a multimedia and multisensorial group show centering on the artists’ perspectives as outliers in every sense of the word. Stemming from Tangled Art + Disability’s Tangled on Tour program, this exhibition invites Disability-identified artists from across Ontario to consider how the city has been built and constructed by those on the periphery.
