Sheridan prof Robert Fones showcases work in Toronto art exhibitions

Robert Fones Signs and Symbols being displayed at the Jessica Bradley Gallery

Art and Art History professor Robert Fones is exhibiting his work in two group shows this week in Toronto. His work is included in a show called “Signs & Symbols” at Jessica Bradley Gallery. In addition, Robert’s work is included in “Sign, sign everywhere a sign” at the University of Toronto Art Centre.

The University of Toronto Art Centre included a detailed description regarding their exhibit.

“Drawing on a diversity of recent acquisitions in the University of Toronto and Hart House Collections, this exhibition considers how signs and symbols have been observed, adopted, and altered in the work of artists from early modernity to today. The exhibition captures the way in which media graphics shape urban landscapes, whether in the proliferation of billboards and screens, the identity programs of nations and institutions, or the visual logic of window display. In response, artists have initiated their own symbolic studies and counter campaigns, progressively infiltrating signs and symbols to their own ends, in the process generating social and political commentary.”

“Signs and Symbols” will be on display from January 14th to February 7th while “Sign, sign everywhere a sign” opened today and will run until March 7th 2015.
