Despite well written curatorial statements, I sometimes wonder if a curated show is inherently an exhibition of the curator’s favourite things. This exhibition at Gow Langsford Gallery Kitchener St is just that. Selected by gallery Staff Favourite Things is a grouping of pairings that, simply put, we like.
Gallery Staff are invited to select two small works to be hung together and asked to explain the relationship of the two works and why they find this relationship interesting. The pairings inlcude Yves Klein and Colin McCahon; Judy Millar and Allen Maddox; Theo Schoon and Dick Frizzell; Dick Frizzell and Gade; Fiona Pardington and Te Kaha; Lisa Roet and Kim Joon.
