13 July – 12 August 2012
Kika Thorne has recently returned to Toronto from Vancouver.
Largely known for experimental documentary film/video and
collaborations with groups such as SHE/tv, the February Group
and the Toronto Free School, Thorne's recent art has evolved into
highly expressive abstract forms. She received her MFA from the
University of Victoria, BC and has exhibited extensively including
projects at Murray Guy, New York; Contemporary Art Gallery,
Vancouver; the G8 Designated Protest Zone 2010, Huntsville, ON;
2011 Forum Expanded, Berlinale.
Exhibition organized by Nestor Kruger with support from G Gallery,
friends, CSA Space, Art Gallery of Windsor, York University Faculty
of Graduate Studies Visual Arts and No Reading After The Internet.
This exhibition is part of a series of conversations instigated by
Christopher Brayshaw of CSA Space in the fall of 2009, and curated
by Srimoyee Mitra at the AGW, this autumn, 2012.
No Reading After The Internet, Cheyanne Turions and the artist will host
a conversation within the sculpture from 7pm on Tuesday, August 7.
