Gesture

Gesture

Movements of a body can signal a mood, express meaning, or even reveal things that are impossible to put into words. Gestures – anything from the simple nod to an emphatic stance – are significant narrative devices that artists skillfully utilize, whether to configure social interactions in a painting, immortalize them for posterity in a photograph, or transmit their emotional resonance in a sculpture. Gestures are significant clues in our endless pursuit to unravel and make meaning of the complexities and contradictions of a world that is always unfolding.
Equinox Gallery is pleased to present Gesture, an exhibition of work by Diane Arbus, Shuvinai Ashoona, Maxwell Bates, Kim Dorland, Rodney Graham, Adad Hannah, Fred Herzog, David Hockney, Al McWilliams, Eadweard Muybridge, Cindy Sherman, Michael Snow and Neil Wedman.

The Beginning of Something

Shawn Hunt
The Beginning of Something

Shawn Hunt is a Heiltsuk artist born in Waglisla (Bella Bella), British Columbia. Hunt’s practice is directly informed by his Scottish, French and First Nations background and the visual culture and traditions that accompany it. He works with traditional Northwest Coast design principle, known as formline, to create abstract, surreal, and sculptural artworks based on ancestral Heiltsuk Cosmology. Hunt is always seeking to push the boundaries of the art form, often combining non-traditional ideas with innovative uses of materials and motifs in his work.

Fred Herzog:
A Life in Pictures

Equinox Gallery is pleased to present Fred Herzog: A Life in Pictures, an exhibition of vintage photographs and cameras from the artist’s personal archive. Bringing together early black and white images developed in the artist’s personal darkroom, never before seen images from the artist’s time at St. Paul’s and his pioneering colour street photography, this exhibition celebrates Herzog’s understanding of the medium combined with, as he put it, “how you see and how you think” created the right moment to take a picture.

Renée Van Halm:
Holding Pattern

Renée Van Halm:
Holding Pattern

Renée Van Halm’s extensive knowledge of architectural forms stemming from years of study and travel have led to the development of a unique language relating to the social dimension of architecture, design, and colour. Traditional views of space are dematerialized and reimagined in synthesis with weavings, shreds of origami paper, and diminutive modernist forms. The works on canvas in this exhibition are based on the works of female artists from the 1920s, including painters such as Sonia Delaunay and Varvara Stepanova, textile artists Anni Albers and Marion Dorn, and Bauhaus artists and educators Otti Berger and Gunta Stölzl. Using experimental motifs and colour relationships developed by these artists, Van Halm reintegrates these unconventional patterns within a two- dimensional painting language that envelops the viewer, bringing out obvious and subtle associations between colour and forms.
