About the exhibition

Members of Toronto’s Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography are pleased to announce their presentation of two group shows at Gallery 1313 in conjunction with the Scotiabank CONTACT 2016 Photography Festival.

“Ellipsis” is a two-part exhibition by members of the artist-run Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography.

In writing, the ellipsis, three dots, conveys what is not said, but implied. Photography, without words,  encapsulates emotion and communicates a narrative. Often omissions are as telling as what is revealed. The challenge of photography is that it is a suspension of time and space. Frozen moments parse a steady stream of cascading events, real or imagined. Only the salient remains. What is in the frame and what gets excluded allows a viewer to
interpret a scene.
Gallery 44 Members’ shows have been part of Contact since its inception. In the two-part exhibition, Ellipsis, 28 members of Gallery 44 Centre of Contemporary Photography utilize a variety of styles, processes and approaches to explore what can be created within a frame.

Exhibitions by Gallery 44 members at Gallery 1313 are a CONTACT tradition.

The Group I Exhibition runs from April 27th to May 8th, 2016.

The Group II Exhibition runs from May 11th to May 22nd, 2016.

Gallery 1313 is open Wednesday through Sunday from 1 pm to 6 pm

Please join us at 7 pm on Thursday, April 28th and at 7 pm on Thursday, May 12th for opening receptions for each respective group show.
