Que­bec-based Ar­gen­tinean José Luis Tor­res is an artist whose three-di­men­sional pieces come to life by al­ter­ing the base mean­ing of the spa­ces they in­habit. This June, the Kof­fler Gallery at Artscape Young­place will ex­pe­ri­ence a spa­tial trans­fig­u­ra­tion dur­ing his “José Luis Tor­res: Ques­tion d’Adap­ta­tion” ex­hi­bi­tion. A vis­ual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the im­mi­grant ex­pe­ri­ence, the ex­hi­bi­tion will fo­cus on the cam­ou­flag­ing, re­flec­tion, and con­struc­tion strate­gies prac­ticed dur­ing mi­gra­tion. Tor­res’s site-spe­cific sculp­tural in­stal­la­tion will work with the space of the gallery to show­case the un­fa­mil­iar ob­ject work­ing to unify it­self with its en­vi­ron­ment, yet si­mul­ta­ne­ously chang­ing the orig­i­nal mean­ing of the site—a re­lat­able theme for the mul­ti­cul­tural city of Toronto. “José Luis Tor­res: Ques­tion d’Adap­ta­tion” is on view from June 21 to Au­gust 26, 2018, at the Kof­fler Gallery at Artscape Young­place.
