I have a new installation opening in Hamilton tomorrow night. It is part of my Secondary Occupants Project. The installation (title: The Ruins of 270 Sherman Ave. North) consists of a cycling slide show of abandoned spider webs I photographed in the space. There are some other elements that will be evident when I post the installation shots on Sunday. You will find a description of the exhibit/event and a list of participants below.
TH&B appropriates the moniker of the defunct railway that once connected Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo, and uses it as an emblem of cultural production in this decentralized region. TH&B2 follows in the footsteps of an earlier project in 2008, in which 18 artists were invited to respond to the post-industrial context of the unoccupied third floor of 270 Sherman, a historic textile mill that has been transformed into a creative industries complex deep in the north end of Hamilton. Focusing on site-responsive installation, sculpture, video and performance, TH&B2 sets out to connect new and established interdisciplinary artists operating in the Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo corridor.
