FRAM­ING BEY­ONCÉ

Fashion (Canada) - - Index -

In the heart of Toronto’s Re­gent Park is a hid­den gem of an art space: YOUNGER THAN BEY­ONCÉ GALLERY. There, artists have to meet the cri­te­ria that gallery di­rec­tors Hum­boldt Mag­nussen and Marjan Ver­stap­pen cre­ated: Ev­ery artist must be un­der 34 (Bey­oncé’s birth­date is Sept. 4, 1981) and each ex­hibitor must be a vir­tual un­known in the Cana­dian art world. Since its sum­mer launch, YTB has ex­posed the work of artists like Au­drey As­sad, Rachel Lud­low, Polina Teif and Shan­non Gar­denSmith. On now is Aether (Sept. 25 to Oct. 10), fea­tur­ing Laura Si­mon (whose forte is mixed media sculp­tures) and video art by Ben Comp­ton.
