"My fervent desire with this exhibit Bad Boys: Portraits of Mediated Performance is to call up the imaginary, the symbolic, the structure and the soul that is the monolithic experience of masculinity." "I have attempted to lay out this experience in three aesthetic approaches - the salon, a collaged wall of chaos, an intermingling map of sorts of images, text and costumes. The second is the personal: inviting friends to reflect on their relationships with fathers, brothers, grandfathers, uncles, sons and husbands. The final addresses the way in which singular famous individuals are canonized from an explosion of tabloid material to the contextual cage that we participate in building for them."

"The photographs of Greg Staatsare concerned with what motivates thee act of viewing as it moves into the time and space of the real, in search of an encounter. The image becomes the 'freezing' of this gesture: a small moment in a continuum, a brief ending barely captured in the image." -Francois Dion

Skai Fowler and Jose Ramon Gonzalez both employ multiple exposures in a series of photographic self portraits. By superimposing body upon body, a dialogue iscreated between light and dark, shadow self and public persona, and the presence of the moment in an extended period of time. Voyeurism and exhibitionism join hands in this expression of human complexity as the line between subject and object is lost in layers of visual suggestion.

Based on the classic conventions of portrait photography, Shari Hatt`s exhibition Dogs is an unflinching, up-close look at the mug shots of many marvelous mutts. Captured in lush, crisp intensity, these avant-guard dogs cut a colourful cross section of the canine world. From the smiling to the somber, the perky to the petulant, the playful to the proud, Hatt portrays each of her subjects with a careful blend of humour, sensitivity and respect. As a result, Dogs serves to please the eye while puzzling the mind.

Still: a photograph. A moment in performance. Still: First Nations people survive. Blatant injustices are not addressed. Still: Indians stand up and claim space. In that space the stories are re-told, re-interpreting what was assumed understood. The space becomes part of the moccasin telegraph: a gathering place, a communal council fire. Grievances are aired. Relations are shown. News of the community is examined, the larger community of Indianess considered...(for full curatorial statement see attached exhibition brochure below)
