This Could Have Been Something Else

First: The lovely Adad Hannah. This Montreal-based artist makes incredible videos and his Prado Project and Mirroring the Musee are both stellar. Either of these series would have been fantastic additions to That Was Now, but we were lucky enough to see the Prado Project in the summer of 2008; featured in the show It Came In A Dream, a collaboration with Montreal gallerist Pierre Francois Ouellette.

Second: The American sculptor Kris Kuksi http://kuksi.com/artworks/sculpture/ His incredibly dense sculptures are comprised of tiny figures, plastic model kits, discarded toys and the like. I recently discovered his work and in my notes scribbled down 'a new rococo!' He too would have been a stunning addition to the show, but works this dense and delicate require more lead time. Kuksi, is represented in NYC by the great Joshua Liner whose presentation at Pulse last March was unforgettable.

That Was Now is open now, featuring works from Canada, United States and Europe. Looking forward to showing you what we've got!
