Gallery 1 presents a solo exhibition by Brant Slomovic. Slomovic is a photo essayist based in Toronto, with a background as an emergency medicine physician. His experience as a doctor working on the front lines instills in him a unique perspective on narrative and the human condition. His passion for storytelling stems from an awareness and sensitivity to people in times of need. What underlies his approach to work and artistic expression is a viewpoint that considers every person through a lens of commonality and connection. From Jewish descent, married to a woman from India, and living in Canada, Brant’s identity finds its roots at the intersection of three distinct cultures. Embracing these influences, Brant invites us to join his journey of personal discovery and cultural phenomena through extraordinary photographs.
In Gallery 2, we present an exhibition featuring works by Mär Martinez, an interdisciplinary artist specializing in sculptural painting. Mär is of Syrian and Cuban descent, and also of Jewish heritage. Both cultures are equally important to her upbringing and she feels closely aligned with her Middle Eastern heritage. Mär’s work dissects dominance, aggression and power dynamics through the lens of a culturally-enforced binary system.
