Silver Editions 2012 brings together a collection of photographs by three women working in photography, from the 1970s to today. Each of these works presents the artist’s unique explorations with the building blocks of photography, be they optical, material, cultural or historical. Together, this group attests to the medium’s continued reinvention.
Suzy Lake is a renowned figure in the international art scene, with a rich history of exhibitions and installations across Canada and beyond, including numerous exhibitions in Europe, South America, Asia and the United States. Her work continues to use references to the body as a means to investigate notions of beauty. Her work is currently on view at Georgia Scherman Projects, where her archival photographic studies from the 1970s are displayed for the first time. Suzy Lake is represented by Gerogia Scherman Projects, Toronto.
Annie MacDonell is a Toronto-based visual artist who works in a variety of media, including photography, film, installation, sculpture and sound. She has exhibited and screened film works across Canada and internationally, and is a 2012 nominee for the Sobey Award. Most recently, she has had solo shows at the Art Gallery of Windsor, Mercer Union and at the Art Gallery of Ontario as part of the IMAGES festival and the AGO’s Toronto NOW series. Annie MacDonell is represented by Katherine Mulherin Projects, Toronto.
Jessica Eaton is a Montreal-based artist whose unique photographic technique has been widely received across Canada and internationally, both in exhibitions and publications. Jessica was the recipient of the Jury Grand Prize awarded by Hyeres Festival as well as the Magenta Foundation’s 2011 Bright Spark award, and has recently exhibited work at the Contact Photography Festival in Toronto and Flash Forward festival in Boston. Jessica Eaton is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery, Toronto.
Silver Editions 2012 is produced in an edition of 23 with only 20 sets available for sale at the introductory price of $1,250 per set. Each portfolio contains three unmated images on 22″ x 17″ photographic paper. These editions, supervised by the artist, are printed by Circuit Gallery with archival pigment inks. The ink and paper combination have display permanence rating of over 200 years. Each image is accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
Silver Editions 2012 is the seventh collection in the series. The images have been generously donated by the participating artists to support Gallery TPW, a not-for-profit artist-run centre and registered charity. All proceeds directly support Gallery TPW’s mandate, programming and operations.
Gallery TPW would like to thank the three participating artists in this project and their dealers, as well as acknowledge the support of Georgia Scherman Projects, Circuit Gallery and Superframe.
