Switch Exhibit The ArQuivesExhibit dates: 

Thursday, January 13, 2011 to Thursday, February 24, 2011

Reception date & time: 

Thursday, January 13 7:30pm-10pm

Description: 

A Solo Exhibition by JJ Levine

Switch is a series of large-scale photo diptychs that present pairs of seemingly different “heterosexual couples” in a portrait studio setting. Upon close inspection, the viewer will recognize that these couples are comprised not of four models, but of two, each portraying a man in one image and a woman in the next. This clever parody of prom-style photographs is intended to challenge the foundations of gender through masquerade and drag. The identified gender of each model is never disclosed.

Opening Reception for Switch

Thank you to all those who attended the Opening Reception for Switch last Thurday.

We had an overwhelming turn out for the launch of our first exhibition to come out of the Call for Exhibitions which is a very good start to our year of exhibitions!

The ArQuives is located on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The ArQuives strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.

The ArQuives has an access ramp to the front door and a lift from the first floor to the second floor. There are volunteers available to operate the lift. 

 There is an accessible washroom on the first floor. All washrooms are gender-neutral. 

 The ArQuives is a scent-free environment. 

 Please contact The ArQuives if you have any specific questions about accessibility that we can help with at queeries@arquives.ca.
