Projections is the first major survey to trace the emergence and development of projection-based installation in the history of contemporary art in Canada from the late 1960s to the present. Curated by Barbara Fischer, the exhibition is co-produced by four major galleries of the University of Toronto: the Blackwood Gallery (UTM), the Doris McCarthy Gallery (UTSC), the University of Toronto Art Centre and the Justine M. Barnicke Gallery located on the downtown campus.
All of the works in this exhibition involve projection, whether in the form of light, slides, film, video or television. Spanning four decades since its first use in the mid 1960s, the exhibition provides a glimpse of a particularly rich area of experimentation in contemporary art in Canada. It brings together, for the first time, projection-related works by such internationally recognized artists as Michael Snow, Murray Favro, Ian Carr Harris, Rodney Graham, John Massey, Stan Douglas, Genevieve Cadieux, Krzystof Wodiczko, Wyn Geleynse, David Hoffos, Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller, Nathalie Melikian, and Judy Radul among others.
