Meat Grinder

Meat Grinder - Queen Gallery proudly presents Meat Grinder. A group exhibition by four talented Iranian artists. “When we put our Chines brushes on English canvases, French colours grimace to Florence frescos. Nutrition from Macdonald’s hamburgers bring our brains’ black cells on the Arabic Sheesha and make Habermas’ suicidal philosophy. A kind of sophistication that grafts Rene Magritte’s covalent band into Nietzsche’s bowel cancer until it depilates his girl-charmer side-whiskers potentize of chemotherapy and made it wig similar Marilyn Monroe hire for Donatello’s Prophet Pumpkin Head. Artistic amoebas disperse it just as suddenly and abruptly as the atomic and neutronic bombs did in the time of the cold war and Andy Warhol; forcing Henry Kissinger to write a poem for Morgan Schuster and the Habsburg monarchy. It’s as if the rotten eggs of our bowls, sing the song of “kiss me again” when it is being crushed under our multi-polar backbones; to inject life to our meat grinder." Reception: Wednesday, July 3rd 7:00 - 9:00 PM, 2019. Queen Gallery.

Limitless Group Exhibition

Limitless Group Exhibition - Queen Gallery is proud to present the works of ten Iranian artists in its 2019 Contact Photography Festival Group Exhibition: Limitless.  The exhibition theme explores the photographic journey of a group of Iranian artists and their experiences with the limits of art. Each artist has taken a different approach of the theme, bringing in a fresh insight into their own artworks and the definition of art. In an attempt to separate themselves from the familiar Persian motifs, these artists expand the scope of what contemporary Iranian art represents. Date: May 15th, 7-9 pm, 2019 Tickets: Free Address: Queen Gallery, 382 Queen Street East Website: http://queengallery.ca/2019/04/limitless/ Email: [email protected] . 382 Queen Street East
