Parallax Scroll at Harbourfront Centre
Went to Harbourfront's York Quay Centre on Saturday to check out this season's exhibitions before they closed on Sunday night. While I went expecting to get a bang out of the craft department's biennial, LOOK Out (and don't get me wrong, I did...), I was completely blown away by Scott Carruthers' drawing installation, Parallax Scroll. An immersive barrage of image and text reminiscent of R. Crumb or Lee's Palace muralist Al Runt, Carruthers' intense drawings reminded me of amazing punk album art. It also made me think of the internet...except more honest.
Favourite exhibition visited in a very long time. Thanks, Scott!
