June 18 - July 9 RAW ME = Exporation of raw sexuality and self-identity with no labels or definitions. Must be 18+ to attend.
RAW ME at Bezpala Brown Gallery
June 18 – July 9
Opening Reception: June 18, 7 – 10pm
After Party: June 18, 10pm – June 19, 5am
RAW ME, art exhibit taking place during Toronto Pride Week, brings together seven local artists for the first time. A collection of expressionistic mixed-media paintings and drawings by Hunter emerged into a visual journal that reflects the artist’s coming out. Luta's Door series use two pieces of dismembered history to revisit the corral world of pubescent fears - in contrast with the razed disclosure of self-acceptance and openness. Deeply personal images by Vaillancourt and Kovalchuk depict the sensitivity and fragility of human body and a contemporary twist to the psyche of body image. Hadzis displays exotic shirts covered with original art and a series of multiple drawings transformed into one single installation piece. Whether still or motion photography, Bogdanovic's message is simple - there are no rules, sexuality has no bounds, all is right with the perverse. Inspired by pin-up photography and fetish art, Sullivan’s black-and-white images depict women in bondage.
The exhibit will be featured as an affiliate event for the Toronto Pride Week 2011. All of the artists will be attending the opening reception from 7 to 10 pm on Saturday, June 18th, while Sarah Hunter will also be at the gallery the next afternoon (June 19th) from 3 to 5 pm.
Must be 18+ to attend. Free Admission. The Reception will be followed by the After Party, 10pm – 5am. Bar will stay open till 2am.
