    Talk by Reinhard Reitzenstein:
    GT stands for Graham Todd, Gin & Tonic, Getting Tougher / making art during one’s 4th decade: 
    October 17, 12:30 pm

    Artist Graham Todd passed away in June 2013. For nearly 30 years he taught as a Professor in McMaster University’s Studio Art programme, and continued his own active studio practice, exhibiting his sculptural work in Canada and internationally in Spain, Mexico, and the USA. Graham’s work can be found in private and public collections around the world.

    This memorial exhibition offers an overview from 1982 to the last untitled works in 2013, being shown for the first time.  The twenty sculptural works, all from Graham’s Estate, range in scale from his intimate Japanese series, to a 220 cm high tower assemblage. 

    The exhibition will also include examples of his sketchbooks and Chris Ward’s video interview with the artist, done in 2012.

    Location 1280 Main Street West, Hamilton, L8S 4L6

    The Art of the Book is a joint project of McMaster Museum of Art and McMaster University Library. The exhibition celebrates the generosity of Rabbi Bernard Baskin, a household name in the Hamilton community. Over the years, the Rabbi has donated nearly 1000 volumes to the Library at McMaster, and to the Museum, hundreds of works of art by his brother, the well known American sculptor, printmaker and private press editor, Leonard Baskin (1922 - 2000).

    Books are more than a passing fascination for Rabbi Baskin. They represent a way of life mirroring the wonder and complexity of human creation. For fifty years he has been an assiduous book collector, and in that time has amassed 10,000 books. For years, he was the proprietor of Ibis Books and Arts, an antiquarian bookselling firm that specialized in Judaica, typography, private press books, pre-1800 books and manuscripts, illustrated books, art and the occult. Selections of this rare material will foreground the exhibition content, while supporting volumes and prints from the Museum’s collection will round out the story of Baskin, the collector.

    Born in New Jersey, Rabbi Bernard Baskin graduated with a B.A. degree from Brooklyn College and with a Masters of Hebrew Literature from the Jewish Institute of Religion in New York City. He came to Hamilton’s Temple Anshe Sholom, the oldest Reform Congregation in Canada, over 60 years ago. The Rabbi is now retired and lives in Hamilton.

    28 August – 25 October 2014
    Paintings by Leopold Plotek and selections from the SOVFOTO Archive               
    Curated by Leopold Plotek and Ben Portis
    Organized by the MacLaren Art Centre, Barrie, Ontario

    Reception:  September 11, 6 – 8 pm
    Docent Guided Tour: September 17 at 12:30 pm for Lifelong Learning Week

    The status of the artist in the Soviet Union from the Russian Revolution of 1917 to the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 followed one of history's remarkable, unprecedented arcs. In the 1920s, artists — including painters, sculptors, architects, novelists, playwrights, poets, composers, musicians, dancers, actors, dramaturges and filmmakers — were the vaunted designers of the new society. In the 1930s, these same individuals met derision, obsolescence and ignominy, suffering the fullest abuses of the state if defiant. By the 1940s, a morbid conservatism and bourgeoisie befell those who had toed the party line and survived to reap official accolades from a system to which they barely remained relevant.

    In this exhibition, photographic clusters of venerated Soviet period figures are displayed among painted and verbal tributes to their lives by Montreal artist Leopold Plotek—born in Moscow in 1948—for whom the concessions, indignities and humilities of Soviet artists has been a recurring subject.

    Leopold Plotek fuses the Modernist picture with a Baroque compositional palette. He blends historical figures and settings into timeless screens that continue to filter and activate contemporary society. Plotek imagines artists, poets, philosophers, clerics, generals, politicians and mythological gods in mundane, humble and absurd situations, putting the pantheon on precarious grounds. Plotek has lived and worked in Montreal since 1960.  He teaches at Concordia University. The exhibition publication was co-produced by the MacLaren Art Centre and McMaster Museum of Art.

    Curators:  Joanne Marion and Linda Jansma 
    28 August – 25 October 2014

    Reception:  September 11, 6 – 8 pm
    Artist Talk:  September 11, 12:30 – 1:20 pm
    Docent Talk:  September 16 at 12:30 pm for Lifelong Learning Week

    The Chamber is an installation by architect-turned-sculptor Ian Johnston, whose work raises questions about our relationship to material culture—or, more specifically, about our current culture’s voracious appetite for the consumption of material things. The Chamberone part of a series of works titled, Reinventing Consumptionis an inflating and deflating piece which shrouds and reveals an enormous mass of household items diverted from waste stream in Medicine Hat. It provides a space to contemplate the environmental impact of mass production through the forces of breath, fire, and water.

    Ian Johnston is based in Nelson, BC. He studied architecture at Algonquin College and Carleton University in Ottawa, and with the University of Toronto at Paris, France. From late 1990 to late 1994, Johnston was based at the Akademie of the Bauhaus Dessau and co-developed experimental and interdisciplinary studio programs working through architecture, design and urban planning.  He returned to Canada in early 1995. He has exhibited his sculptural ceramic work internationally since the mid-nineties. His current work examines our relationship with the environment in installations that use ceramic and mixed media and appeal to multiple senses of the viewer.

    Presented in partnership with the Esplanade Art Gallery, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Art Gallery of Swift Current, Dunlop Art Gallery and Access Gallery. The catalogue produced by the gallery partners, includes essays by Kimberly Phillips (Access Gallery) and Ihor Holubizky (McMaster Museum of Art).
