34 Isabella St.
Drawing and expanding on a variety of photographic traditions, At the Same Time features the work of six artists: Steven Beckly and Dylan MacNeil (Toronto, ON), Ted Kerr and Zachary Ayotte (Brooklyn, NY), and Colin Quinn and Oisín Share(Manchester, UK), who simultaneously explore the nature and development of their romantic relationships from three different parts of the world. Private exchanges emerging from domestic, romantic, and sexual dimensions of their relationships are openly explored, uncovering a collection of personal narratives and intimate realities.
The exhibition includes a book launch for the publication of the same name. At the Same Time includes 65 colour images by the six artists, and essays by AA Bronson, Paul Mgapi Sepuya, and Sholem Krishtalka. Artists will be present during the opening to sign copies. Available for purchase at the CLGA, and online at: http://atthesametime.bigcartel.com/product/at-the-same-time-book
