A Pillowy Patchwork of Porn Stars and Politicians, The Sphincter Steps Into the Spotlight and Que(e)ry Ponders Queer Community
Speech From the Throne: A Pornopolitico Patchwork Quilt by Toronto artist Philip Hare, showing concurrently with Point of Entry by Toronto photographer Michael Baker and Que(e)ry, the gallery’s Pride show. Opening on Thursday, June 26, these provocative bodies of work challenge some viewers and delight others.
Speech From the Throne Philip Hare’s large quilt installation combines digital photography with traditional quilting to create a patchwork of porn stars and Canadian politicians and his own “member” of Parliament.
