The gallery is pleased to announce it now represents Sam Cotter.
Sam Cotter is a Toronto-based artist whose practice exists at the intersection of research, text, and image. Cotter regularly employs photography, film, and installation to examine issues of visual representation and artifice. Central to the construction of all of his projects is an embedded documentary element mediated through a self-reflexive filter. Cotter received a BFA from Ryerson University in 2012. Recent exhibitions and projects include Reciprocity - a failure to communicate, a special commission for C Magazine's participation at the L.A. Art Book Fair (2015), Spit and Image at Ryerson Image Centre (2014) and An Exhibition (with Fraser McCallum) at Xpace Cultural Centre (2014). Cotter has curated the group exhibition "Working Conditions" on view at Gallery TPW from June 23 to August 6, and will have a solo exhibition at Zalucky Contemporary in the fall of 2016.

The 2016 Gattuso Prize is awarded to Lee Henderson for his CONTACT Featured Exhibition Never Letting Us Take Breath, presented at Zalucky Contemporary April 30 - June 4, 2016
The Gattuso Prize of $5,000 acknowledges an outstanding Featured Exhibition in the 2016 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. The jury, Rui Mateus Amaral (Curator and Artistic Director of Scrap Metal) and Mona Filip (Director/Curator of the Koffler Gallery at the Koffler Centre of the Arts), based their decision on the calibre and concept of the work, the curatorial vision, and overall impact and presentation of the exhibition.
"Merging two mid-twentieth century photographic archives, Lee Henderson devises a multi-media project that poetically explores the visual intersections between personal records and marketing devices. Henderson's juxtaposition of images, projections and voice narration allow the viewer's eye to travel and encounter moments of beauty, surprise and longing, much like "the tourist" who is implicated in each found photograph. Evoking our own inner travelogues, the project articulates a thoughtful mediation on photography's persistent role in constructing and undoing personal memory." - Mona Filip and Rui Mateus Amaral.
