August is the month of group exhibitions. While not every group exhibition is necessarily appealing, I would stumble upon some nice surprises from time to time. I visited Toronto's the DepARTment yesterday and saw some interesting collages by Jacob Whibley. With his geometric and organic forms posing next to each other, Whibley's compositions exploit the contrast between found and intentionally crafted elements.
Collages seem to be the hottest thing this summer. Also at the DepARTment are Laurie Kang's collages of abstract forms. I love the imaginary spaces Kang created.
