Configurations is a two-person exhibition that brings the parallel practices of Mike Hoolboom and Jorge Lozano into dialogue. Both are prolific and pioneering Canadian video artists who celebrate an impure cinema. Their works are being shown together for the first time in a gallery for several reasons, not least of which is to create an opportunity for unlikely juxtapositions, to produce an open field of reading for their viewers.

Jorge Lozano is a Colombian-Canadian film and video artist. His fiction films have been exhibited at the Toronto International Film Festival and at the Sundance Film Festival amongst others. His experimental work has been exhibited at many international festivals and galleries. His practice includes the organization of cultural events, as well as video workshops for marginalized youth in Canada, Venezuela, and Colombia.
Mike Hoolboom is a Canadian media artist and writer. He was schooled at the Funnel, Toronto's former underground movie palace, and has made more than 100 movies since 1980. There have been twenty international retrospectives of his work, including recent turns in Russia, Portugal and Switzerland. He was the recipient of the Governor General's award in visual and media arts in 2017.
