    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).
