Yet Not a Double brings together six artists that engage with a disjuncture of position. The exhibition is the second in a series of three exhibitions at the University of Toronto Mississauga’s Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre for students in the Art & Art History program. The exhibition follows Not a Panopticon, the first in this series that opened in 2012, which included artists Sera Bannon, Kara Firth, and Sarah Lalonde.
The art works function as interventions that disturb routine and transform the library into an alternative exhibition site. Not a Panopticon demonstrated the extent to which panoramic views in the library are visually dissected and cropped from full view. Yet Not a Double responds to these visual dissections by doubling and displacing objects, slicing them into two positions, and suggesting an infinite multiplicity. The first exhibition emphasized the interruptions of the library’s sightlines. The second exhibition makes use of these multiple sightlines and places them alongside one another.
The exhibiting students from Sheridan are all from the Art and Art History Program: Samantha Hanrath, Ebony Jansen, Matthew Morales, Joanna Di Nunzio, AnnaLiisa Ollila, and Ashley St. Pierre.
