Curated by: Neeko Paluzzi

In this curated group exhibition, eight artists were selected to show images that emphasize concept over aesthetic. As curator Neeko Paluzzi put it, "I wasn't looking for beauty. I wasn't looking for documents. I was looking for political, social, and conceptual ideas visualized. These are not just photographs –– they are ideas taking the form of images."

When the call for submissions were placed earlier this year, Exposure Gallery reviewed nearly one hundred images. Thank you for all those who submitted!

CONCEPTS is the most innovative show at Exposure Gallery to date.

Arta Gallery 14 Distillery Lane Toronto, On. Canada. Vernissage: May 4, 2017, 4-8PM

 For the first time ever, the work of 50 Ottawa-based photographic artists will be on display, as a part of the CONTACT Photography Festival!

For this exhibition, the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa has curated a show that merges work from Exhibition No. 12 with work by alumni, staff and faculty from the school's 12-year history. The City of Ottawa has graciously opened their collection and archive in order to realize this important celebration. The City has a long history of collecting the work of SPAO students, alumni, staff, and faculty as a part of its Direct Purchase Program, and many of the works featured in this exhibition will be from the City's collection.

Exposure Gallery is a creative collaboration between the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa and Thyme and Again. This space functions not only as a sophisticated gallery space, but also as a restaurant, a gathering space, and a venue for special events. Through this collaboration, we hope to strengthen the existing community and to introduce a new audience to the appreciation of photo-based art. The gallery is located on the top floor of Thyme and Again.
