OUTREACH Online: Envision is an online exhibition showcasing the works of youth artists aged 13-26 residing within the GTA. In response to the current pandemic, Gallery 44 invited young artists to share what they have been creating, reflecting on, exploring, monitoring, and engaging with to capture the diverse experiences and feelings incited by COVID-19. In addition to providing a snapshot of the pandemic realities, this exhibition encourages participants and viewers to envision a world post-pandemic and all of its utopian and dystopian possibilities.

In his City in Motion project, Huw Morgan sets out to capture the dynamism of Toronto and its people. In contrast to traditional street photography that freezes time and space, these images juxtapose the unchanging backdrop of the city with the flow of people as foreground. This communicates the transitory nature of human life compared to our surroundings. We are ghosts in the machine.

A maze of collapsing lines was created in 2019 on the occasion of Gallery 44’s 40th anniversary. The hybrid online exhibition and publication considers shifting notions of geographical and virtual spaces, perceived sensations of groundlessness, and how a gallery rooted in lens-based imagery can use the web to expand dialogues on contemporary image culture and artist-run platforms. It features the work of contemporary lens-based artists from different regions of Canada.
