Through the representation or evocation of reflections, echoes, or iterations, the works in this exhibition interrogate, express, or reveal hidden contradictions within contemporary social systems as they relate to dualities of self and Other.
A full-colour exhibition catalogue with original curatorial essay and artist interviews was produced in conjunction with the show (selected spreads shown).
chapter opener for Parallel Universes Meet at Infinity by Manuel Saiz
Whether the Other is cast variously as the embodiment of nature, the irretrievable past, the imperfect, or the unknown, the works within the exhibition represent our uniquely human attempts to integrate with that uncanny object of our deepest fear and desire, the unknowable within ourselves.
chapter opener for Alien/Recognition by Marta Ryczko
Of Other Faces was the first exhibition of work by international artists Victoria Fu and Manuel Saiz in Canada.
