Kim Simon will introduce Canadian Gallery TPW in as an institution and share a thread of her curatorial work investigating an ethics of showing and looking in relation to the aesthetics of troubling images. In relation to this research, Simon will discuss her exhibitions and discursive programs looking at work by Polish artist Artur Zmijewski, American documentary photographer Eric Gottesman, filmmaker Renzo Martens, and a group exhibition looking at the relation between difficult knowledge, narrative abstraction, affect and thought (in works by Chanarin and Broomberg (UK), Jannicke Laker (Norway), Ken-Gonzales Day (US), John Moore (US) and Paolo Canevari (It).
Kim Simon is Curator of Gallery TPW in Toronto. Founded in 1980 as a non-profit venue for photographic practices, TPW is committed to a media-specific but now expanded mandate, addressing the vital role that images play in contemporary culture and exploring the exchange between photography and time-based media.
