It may be dreary out today, but we’re open until 4pm! 
Drop in and check out our current exhibitions, including “Welcome to Detroit: Suzy Lake and Orlando Ford”, on for one last week! #westernu
Thanks to all who joined us for a great public lecture led by artist and doctoral candidate Mark Kasumovic yesterday! 
Mark spoke about his thesis work and his intentions to create images that look deeper than surface, investigating critical questions that arise from considering technology and science from the perspective of the camera and their photographs. 
His exhibition, “A Human Laboratory”, is on at McIntosh through to June 29. #westernu
Current exhibitions remain on view at Mcintosh Gallery through June 30. As always, we’re here until 5pm on Fridays and open 12-4pm on Saturdays!

Come by, cool off, and take in Mark Kasumovic’s exhibition “A Human Laboratory”.
Mark will be delivering a public doctoral lecture next Tuesday, June 19 at the gallery at 10am. This event will be free and open to the public, for those interested in learning more about his work and research.
Thanks to all who joined us yesterday evening for the opening reception of “Welcome to Detroit: Suzy Lake and Orlando Ford” and “A Human Laboratory”. What a fantastic turnout!

Weren't able to join us last night, or want to revisit these shows another time? Each of these exhibitions are on at McIntosh through to June 30.
Installation continues for our upcoming exhibitions “Welcome to Detroit: Suzy Lake and Orlando Ford”, and “A Human Laboratory” opening this Friday evening from 7 to 9pm at McIntosh Gallery!

Our opening reception is being held in conjunction with @westernuvisarts opening reception of Tyler Durbano’s MFA exhibition being held at the Artlab Gallery from 6 to 8pm that same evening. 
Both events offer free admission and are open to the public. #westernu
This week, @westernuniversity is hosting finalists of the #WorldsChallenge Challenge, a summit for teams of students from across the world competing to present their unique solutions to global issues.
Today, McIntosh Gallery participated in their Amazing Race activity, inviting participants from six teams to collaborate on an exquisite corpse drawing. Thanks to all for participating, and best of luck with the final competition this Thursday! #westernu
McIntosh Gallery is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Helen Gregory to the position of curator.

Gregory holds a BFA in painting and art history from Concordia University, an MPhil in humanities from Memorial University, and a PhD in visual culture from the Department of Visual Arts at Western University. 
Gregory served as curator-in-residence at McIntosh Gallery between 2017 and 2018, and we are thrilled to be working with her as our curator moving forward. #westernu #westernalumni
Back to regular gallery hours today! We’re in the last days of our current exhibitions, The Flora and Ian Tripp Collection (pictured here) and Recent Acquisitions, each on view until this Saturday, May 26 at 4pm. 
Be sure to stop by before then and visit, or re-visit these incredible exhibitions curated by Catherine Elliott Shaw. #ldnont #westernu
There are so many wonderful colours surrounding the gallery at this time of year. Take advantage of the sunshine and visit our sculpture garden, or come inside to check out our current exhibitions before the long weekend!

We will be closed from Saturday, May 19 through Monday May 21 for the Victoria Day long weekend. Regular gallery hours will resume Tuesday, for the last days of The Flora and Ian Tripp Collection, and Recent Acquisitions. 
Thank you to everyone who came out to join us for the closing reception of Jamelie Hassan's Wall with Door on Saturday afternoon at @satelliteprojectspace! Special thank you to Dr. Helen Gregory for facilitating the discussion.

Jamelie hosted a wonderful discussion about Wall with Door, and spoke about the fragile nature of making and preserving artwork in a shifting terrain. She even shared with us some images and diary excerpts from around the time the work was created, pulled form her personal archive.

McIntosh Gallery is pleased to present its recent acquisition, Jamelie Hassan’s Wall with Door, on at @satelliteprojectspace through to May 12. 
A closing reception for the installation will be held from 4-5pm on Saturday, May 12, featuring a discussion with Jamelie Hassan about her work. 
All are welcome! 
A gift of Bill Stelpstra and Andrew Smyth to McIntosh Gallery, Wall with Door was first exhibited at @forestcitygallery in 1977, and references Hassan’s travels through Colombia and Mexico in 1975-76 and her subsequent eviction from, and the demolition of, her London studio the following year. 
Born in London, Ontario and raised in an Arabic-speaking household, Jamelie Hassan explores the dichotomies of East and West, interior and exterior, centre and periphery, and responds to issues that arise from life in a culturally diverse society. 
Happy last day of exams @westernuniversity! Wishing you all a safe and restful summer break!

If you’re leaving London until September, be sure to drop by Mcintosh Gallery to take in our current exhibitions: The Flora and Ian Tripp Collection: Art, Friends, Memories, and Recent Acquisitions, each on view through to May 26! #westernu #ldnont
