Kika Thorne has recently returned to Toronto from Vancouver. Largely known for experimental documentary film/video and collaborations with groups such as SHE/tv, the February Group and the Toronto Free School, Thorne’s recent art has evolved into highly expressive abstract forms. She received her MFA from the University of Victoria, BC and has exhibited extensively including projects at Murray Guy, New York; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; the G8 Designated Protest Zone 2010, Huntsville, ON; 2011 Forum Expanded, Berlinale.

Exhibition organized by Nestor Kruger with support from G Gallery, friends, CSA Space, Art Gallery of Windsor, York University Faculty of Graduate Studies Visual Arts andNo Reading After The Internet. This exhibition is part of a series of conversations instigated by Christopher Brayshaw of CSA Space in the fall of 2009, and curated by Srimoyee Mitra at the AGW, this autumn, 2012.

No Reading After The Internet, cheyanne turions and the artist will host a conversation within the sculpture from 3-5pm on Tuesday, August 7.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
