SLIP/FRICTION Barrie Jones and Manuel Pina

OPENING MAY 3, 7 – 10PM

Exhibition runs May 3rd – June 30th (Toronto)

Slip/Friction features Vancouver photo-based artists Barrie Jones and Manuel Pina. Both approach the photograph in a similar way, but render images that are provocatively dissimilar. Jones’ work incorporates the figure in Vancouver’s landscape with tableaux that capture those outside of history staffing an idealized landscape. Pina’s photographs are silent, eerie and cool, the pedestals and spaces of lost and forgotten heroes, marking the aching history of Havana and Cuba.
