The Queer Jewish Photography of Oscar Wolfman

Curators: Mahrokh Ahankhah & David Townsend

May 2- May 26, 2017
Tuesday to Saturday 3:30pm to 7:30pm
Sunday & Monday by appointment only
Please call 416 361 6045

Opening reception:
Wednesday May 3, 2017, 7:00-9:00 pm

 

This retrospective of the late Toronto photographer Oscar Wolfman (1956-2011) focuses on his transgressive yet deeply reverent queering of Jewish spirituality and culture.  Large-format archival prints reference the the Italian settecento, in lush reimaginings of biblical scenes. Meditations on Jewish ritual practices provocatively foreground their homoerotic valence. The deeply humane relation of Wolfman’s camera to the inner life of his subjects is perhaps the purest distillation of his spirituality.
