Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto is set to open an exciting group exhibition featuring an interesting selection of Canadian and international artists.  The exhibition, titled This Place in Time, features a broad range of mediums including photography, painting, drawing, and sculpture.

Above is one of Brooklyn-based artist Ryan Wallace's mixed media pieces in the show.

You can preview more of the artists in this exhibition below.

From the Gallery - "Whether physical, social, cultural, or philosophical, the concept of “space” has obsessed humankind for centuries. Within the field of visual art, an interest in space has been a prominent thread in the generation of creators emergent from the 1970s through to the 1980s. The artists assembled in This Place in Time have each invested in the boundless, definition-evading idea of “space”. Not only does the content of these works focus on unpicking the attendant theme, but also the variety of media on view allow audience members to question how subjectivity plays out in the space defined by the plane of the page, the surface of a sculpture, and the interstitial areas between."
