A scaffold with, against
Jasmina Cibic, Caroline Monnet, Pejvak
University of Toronto Art Museum
May 11 - July 30, 2022
A scaffold with, against featured works by artists Jasmina Cibic, Caroline Monnet, and the collective Pejvak that take as their material the forms that prop up constructions of the future—processes that may appear elusive in the face of larger, seductive propositions for icons of progress. Beginning with references to material structures, the artworks expand to recognize the ambiguous scaffold as a perpetuating apparatus across geographic borders and political contexts. The artworks in this exhibition utilize film, print, and textile media, inviting us to recognize and question our capacities and agencies to shift these scaffolds and generate new ones.
