Selections: Mike Billington and Adam Medley
April 16 to May 14, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, April 16, 7 - 9pm
Selections is an exhibition of select works from the extensive catalogues of two young Toronto artists, Adam Medley and Mike Billington. Offering a sampling of their prolific outputs, the show illustrates the artists' Dada-influenced aesthetic, ruminative temperament, and predilection for humour--all shared signatures of their respective practices.
Adam Medley is a Toronto-based artist and holds a BA from the University of Guelph. The latest iteration of his ongoing project, The Pleasure Is Back, launched at Art Metropole in 2010 and can be followed online at thepleasureisback.com.
Mike Billington is a Toronto-based cartoonist. He is currently working on a two volume compendium titled JOKES and VISUAL JOKES. Both will be available by 2021AD.
