KINO SPACE

Kino, the word for cinema in several languages, has become synonymous with a cinematic movement that encourages non-competitive creativity and community amongst filmmakers internationally. KINOSPACE is committed to spotlighting Canada’s screen-based artists by showcasing works from a diversity of backgrounds, provinces, mediums and formats including: film imagery as photographic stills; short films; painting; photography; and mixed-media works.

                                                                                                                      Works by Youri Makovski

                                                                                                                      Works by Youri Makovski

KINOSPACE began as a way for artists working in Canada’s film industry, unionized and independent filmmakers, craftspeople and technicians to get out of the studios and collaborate together. Launching this exhibition during the month of September enriches the film festival spirit in the city by broadening and opening doors for artists to participate and engage in Toronto’s major celebration of cinema while exhibiting a broad spectrum of image art talent from Canada’s community of film makers.

The exhibit features work by Chagall Velleneuve-Hollis, Shari Lee Hollis, Youri Makovski, Jack Ruttan, Jeremy Kane, Frances Mckenzie, Annie Bradford Metheany, Debbie Wong and Jasmine Mujkanovic. Each artist brings a unique artistic style to the table and showcases their creative abilities aside from those they demonstrate in Canada’s film industry. Twist Gallery invites you to experience the pieces on display in KINOSPACE that cumulatively resonate a deeply genuine and organic portrayal of each artist’s talents apart from the film industry.
