If you could document your relationship in emotively visceral detail, would you? That’s what six local and international artists did for an exhibit entitled “At the Same Time”. Revealing the most intimate moments of their personal relationships, this photographic series depicts the most romantic, sexual, and tender aspects of each artist’s relationships over the course of three years.
Hailing from the LGBT community, this exhibit hopes to “expose the reality of contemporary same sex relationships”.
Featured arists include: Artists showing work include Steven Beckley and Dylan MacNeil from Toronto, Ted Kerr and Zachary Ayotte from Edmonton and Colin Quinn and Oisin Share from Manchester.
The event will also feature a book launch also titled “At the Same Time”, viewers can read personal essays from AA Bronson, Paul MgapiSepuya and Sholem Krishtalka. that explore the delicate topic of modern love.
Having had an opportunity to peak at the photos, we can assure you that this is a special show that will likely inspire you to document your own relationship. It’s funny how an image of messy sheets can provoke such strong feelings. We can smell the sex and feel the intimacy.
Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives are located at 34 Isabella Street.
Opening this Friday, Aug 10, 7:30-10pm. Exhibit runs until Sept 22.
