The Salon of Inclusiveness - Year End Group Show December 11 2014
To celebrate the end of the year, we are using the fundamental idea of crowdsourcing to bring together a large and inclusive group show. No medium or work will be rejected from this show, the only requirement is that it can be hung on our gallery walls.
As an alternative art space, TheBlackCat doesn't have to answer to any particular set of aesthetics or rules, and as a result has seen a wide variety of shows, in a wide variety of mediums grace the space over the last year and a half.
The show, Salon des Inclusivité, is a play and positive take on the Salon des Refusés:
"In 1863 two thirds of paintings presented at the Paris Salon were refused, including the works of Courbet, Édouard Manet, Camille Pissaro and Johan Jongkind. The works which didn't align with the Emperor's traditional tastes we're upon protest shown in another part of the palace as the "Salon des Refusés." The critical attention served to legitimize the emerging avant-garde in painting."

TheBlackCat (previously known as just it's address 2186Dundas) has now been open for over 18 months and hosted 50+ photography and art shows. We couldn't have done it without all the extremely talented emerging artists and collectives that have continually and uniquely defined the space with each exhibition.
