Each year, Gallery TPW releases an affordable, limited-edition portfolio of photographs featuring exceptional artists. Thoughtfully compiled by TPW’s Silver Editions committee, Silver Editions represents a rare opportunity for art lovers and collectors alike to acquire works by established and emerging artists at affordable prices. The sale of these artworks also supports Gallery TPW, a nonprofit artist-run centre and registered charity, and its innovative programming. To see other past Silver Editions, click here.

The artists in this year's collection share an interest in the political history of images and the continuous processes of their recontextualizion. The artists re-perform and re-present existing images and cultural gestures, simultaneously speaking back to their sources and reverberating outward. In mockery of carefully choreographed military routines, the dark clown of Broomberg & Chanarin's The Folly of Comic Pain mimics the form and pose of a disfigured doll documented by Surrealist photographer Hans Bellmer. In Purple Haze: Hydrangeas in Space, Zvonar cuts and pastes found printed matter into a surreal homage to Jimi Hendrix, the Purple One (R.I.P. Prince), and the beauty and mysteries of deep space. In June 22, Linklater reproduces in miniature the cover art of an album by Comanche/Kiowa musician Jesse Ed Davis, which was in turn a replica of a painting by his father Jesse Edwin Davis II.
