Dana Claxton has a very busy spring line up this year. With a second iteration of exhibition of Indian Candy that premiered at Winsor Gallery in the fall of 2013 going on display at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. More than half of the works from the exhibition will be exhibited. A great opportunity to see these works once more!

If you are as in love with this series as we are here at the gallery, then be sure to stop in and pick up a Catalog of the exhibition. The essay has beautiful full colour photographs of the works and the installation at the gallery as well as an intriguing essay written by Kathleen Ritter.  These are high in demand, and going fast!

Additionally Dana's Indian Candy series will be displayed on a monumental scale in Toronto during Scotiabanks' Contact Photography Festival. Six images from the series will be presented on billboards across 6 Canadian Cities this May as part of the festival. More info on the festival can be found below. 
The 2012 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival is pleased to present the Cross-Canada Billboard Project. Partnered with Nikon Canada and Pattison Outdoor Advertising, we will be stripping billboards across major Canadian cities of their advertisements, replacing them with public installations from the Festival artists.

CONTACT’s 2014 thematic programming highlights the relationship between identity and photography by focusing on images that explore individual and collective attributes. The Festival’s Primary Exhibitions and Public Installations include photo-based works by Canadian and international artists, both emerging and established, that address issues of character, nationality, migration, race, class, gender, feminism, masculinity, and sexuality. While some artists create scenes that represent intimate aspects of themselves and their subjects, others take a documentary approach to describe shared concerns and provoke questions. Each of them emphasizes the power of photographs to influence a physical and psychological identification with people, places, and things, while acknowledging the complex and mutable character of their subjects. Through a variety of practices, the artists and their photographs assert their own idiosyncratic identity and elicit an emotional association that is both outwardly influential and internally processed by viewers.
