Join us for 185 Augusta’s new exhibition featuring the photography of Moses Kofi and Soteeoh.
Thursday, October 3rd. 7-11 PM
Good Art, Good People, Good Music, Free.
About the show:
Self-taught photographers Moses Kofi and SoTeeOh share personal philosophies and creative inspirations through a series of images. Their photography consists of street scenes and portraiture from Toronto, Trinidad and Washington depicting the artists’ unique perspectives on life and creativity. Both artists employ a variety of mediums to showcase their images working with glass, wood, metal and found objects. The show is an immersive visual documentation of both artists’ life experiences: personal philosophies told through the lens.
The world is full of opposites, wrong/right, good/evil, up/down, Black & White/Colour… Artist Jimmy Chiale seeks to bring a balance to that last pairing with his hand picked group of Toronto artists working under a common theme: Balanced Expressions. This unique show features 11 sets of work, each with 1 Black & White, and 1 colour piece among them. Each of these pairs was created specifically with a harmony between the two sides in mind, with each piece complimenting the other.
It was put forth as a sort …of challenge to these artists to try something a bit different, and broaden horizons. Participating artists include:
Phillip A. Saunders
Raquel Da Silva
and Malcom Yarde
We have ventured back in our history and recognized many of the great achievements accomplished by Black people. Each February we do this time and time again. But what of our distant future as Black people. This collection of art work explores future visions of our existence and evolution as people. Perhaps A Black take on science fiction through a lens of full vibrant colour. Join us at Accents as Danilo McDowell-McCallum travels down one path into the story of our future Black destiny.
