The Blackwood Gallery presents the launch of Burning Glass, Reading Stone, an eight-part lightbox series on the University of Toronto Mississauga Campus, opening September 8, 2020 with Martina Pozzan’s Musa × paradisiaca L.
Activating four outdoor lightboxes in public space on the UTM campus throughout the 2020-2021 academic year, Burning Glass, Reading Stone explores the conditions, technologies and spaces of spectatorship that mediate our engagements with the world — physical and virtual. The lightbox program features eight sets of images: each provides a distinct testimony borne of a particular mode of observation or narration.
Featuring work by: American Artist, Rouzbeh Akhbari, Yto Barrada, Black Quantum Futurism, Martina Pozzan, Oscar Santillán, Jon Sasaki, Erdem Taşdelen, Shaheer Zazai, and more.
