Out of Many

February 6 - April 17, 2021

Virtual exhibition and programming

Wedge Curatorial Projects in collaboration with Gallery TPW is pleased to present Out of Many.  Curated by Emilie Croning, the exhibition pairs vintage 35mm slides from Jorian Charlton's family archive from the 1970s and 80s in Jamaica, Toronto, and New York with her own photographic practice that explores new visual references around Black aesthetics and Jamaican-Canadian identity. Out of Many foregrounds the intersections between public and private histories, asking: how do private materials such as family archives interact and transform a public space? Both the exhibition and archive explore the fluidity of the immigration story, new ways of thinking about Caribbean-Canadian culture, and rediscover the family album through a contemporary lens.

Untitled (Angaer)

March - June, 2021

Billboard

Exhibited on the billboard at Artscape Youngplace in partnership with Critical Distance Centre for Curators, Untitled (Angaer) is presented as part of Jorian Charlton's exhibition Out of Many

The individuals in Jorian Charlton's photographs become stand-ins for everyday Black folks, whose beauty and culture often lack recognition and representation as they are. Taking cues from fashion photography, Charlton's way of working emphasizes her sitter's role in being photographed. Here, Charlton carefully captures the movement in her muse's hair, distilling a sense of freedom and agency. She is unbound by the static nature of the frame.
