In the Cannon St Gallery: Steven Laurie Jacked!
Steven Laurie Jacked!
Thurs Sept 6 Opening Reception – 7-9:30 pm
Steven Laurie’s exhibition Jacked! examines the unfolding aspects of normative masculinity through visual references to blue-collar trades, pastime activity, consumerism, and horseplay. The artist employs traditions of performance art, kinetic sculpture and mark-making to consider how actions/processes such as burning rubber, engine revving, and stereo thumping can be seen as communicating a sense of subcultural kinship and territoriality. In the performance Burnout, the act of burning rubber is reinvented as artistic gesture and imprint on James St North.
Steven Laurie is a visual artist from Oshawa ON who is now based in Toronto ON. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Station Gallery, Whiby, ON. His work has been featured at the Jack Shainman Gallery, NY, for MOCCA 900 at the Toronto International Art Fair, and in the exhibition Speed Demon at Museum London.
