Jayce Salloum
a history of photography

April 23–May 21, 2016
MKG127
1445 Dundas St W

We are buried in a plethora of images, inundated with a surfeit of surfaces, slices of shadows and the self, reflections bouncing off glass. We carry these images with us, or at least images of the images where the instant has meaning and the moment is lost. Salloum retraces his encounters with photography with work from several decades including photographs by Ansel Adams, Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber, Moyra Davey, Lorraine Gilbert, Barbara Martz, Alison Rossiter, Barbara Spohr, Andy Sylvester and others.

Jayce Salloum has exhibited at the widest range of venues possible, from the smallest storefronts in his neighbourhood to institutions including the Musée du Louvre, Museum of Modern Art, Centre Georges Pompidou, National Gallery of Canada, Bienal De La Havana, Sharjah Biennial, and the Biennale of Sydney. Salloum is a recipient of the 2014 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts and is a finalist for the 2016 Scotiabank Photography Award.
