( 185Augusta Member)

Tru Ferguson’s current body of work focuses on the deconstruction of the face and body into multiple layers paired with the integration of light. In doing so she invites the viewer to re-examine traditional perceptions of the human face and body on a level that goes beyond the exterior.
Photography merging with other traditional artistic medium, such as collage, re-imagining aesthetics and textures, playing with fragments and wholes, light and darkness to create different realities.

“Cross My Mind” is the first single from new artist, allie. It possesses a nostalgic quality reminiscent of old school R&B and Soul. Lust, desire, and indecision are interwoven in melodic unity, creating a sound that is quintessentially allie.
Join us in celebrating the release of the video for “Cross My Mind” as well as a live performance by allie.

“Starships and Angels” is the new solo exhibition by Toronto based artist Danilo McDowell McCallum. Danilo’s artwork explores the concept of afro-futurism through the use of his signature “blockhead” portraits of black artists. The exhibition is being held at 185 Augusta which is a gallery space located in Toronto’s Kensington market that is home to a collective of multi-disciplinary urban artists. This will be Danilo’s third solo show and builds off of the recent success of his “Black Future Month” exhibition which opened in February.
For more information about the artist and this exhibition please see the attached press kit and video link (below).
