UN-AMERICAN UN-FAMOUS. Solo exhibition. Ryerson Image Centre's Salah Bachir New Media Wall, Toronto, January 23 to April 13, 2013. Curator Gaëlle Morel.

UN-AMERICAN (UN-FAMOUS) will use a hybrid mix of old and new media including: Super 8 and 16mm film "leader" loops, animated GIFs, photographs, paint, text, as well as HTML5 and javascript (“hacked” web technology used here for non-web purposes). The work draws some of its original materials from the renowned Black Star journalistic photo archive using the "un-famous" as an organizing principle, while asking the question, "is it un-American to be un-famous?"

MEDIA, MEDIATED. Solo exhibition. Stephen Bulger Gallery, Toronto, March 2 to March 30, 2013.
