James Nizam’s work is currently on display at Art Bermondsey Project space, an independent contemporary art venue in London which takes up three floors of a former 19th-century paper mill. The exhibition, Canada Now – The Tip of the Iceberg (November 125, 2017) brings together 12 Canadian artists whose work compels their viewers to take a prolonged look to fully understand what is presented. The project is curated by Anaïs Castro, the director of Art Mûr Germany, as the second part of a two-part exhibition Canada Now.

The brochure for the exhibition states, “Through a variety of mediums ranging from installation to video art and photography, the exhibition testifies to the complexity of a world in constant flux and aims to disavow initial preconceptions while promoting prudent attention and critical examination.”

Nizam’s work is on display with that of Canadian artists Sonny Assu, Patrick Bérubé, Simon Bilodeau, Jannick Deslauriers, Karine Giboulo, Guillaume Lachapelle, Laurent Lamarche, Cal Lane, Marie-Ève Levasseur, Nadia Myre, and Karine Payette.

Pierre Coupey’s solo exhibition ACROSS | BETWEEN | WITHIN (October 13 – November 4th, 2017) at the Odon Wagner Gallery, Toronto, has been reviewed by Dion Kliner on New York City-based art blog Two Coats of Paint.

Kliner describes Coupey’s paintings as “lush and wet, the paint’s viscous materiality so thinned that it runs down in rivulets creating a gravitational flow, making the paintings look as if they could slide right off their supports.”
