Untitled 12: SooVAC's 12th Juried Exhibition - SooVAC

www.soovac.org [cached]

Each year SooVAC invites guest jurors to select the work, this year it was Enrico Gomez and Theo Sims.
Theo Sims is a visual artist whose installations often focus on the juxtaposition of the familiar and everyday with some form of contextual subversion or perversion. His sharp sense of humor is often fused with the social, ephemeral and personal. Sims has presented his installations across Canada in Toronto, St. Johns, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Calgary and has presented in several solo and group exhibitions in the UK, Ireland and across Europe. His work has been reviewed or featured in Canadian Art, Abridged, C Magazine, Circa, The Irish Times, The Sunday Times, The Globe & Mail, Border Crossings, BlackFlash, The New York Times and Maclean's Magazine. Sims has also worn the hat of programmer/curator and was formerly the Director of the Context Gallery in Derry, Programming Director of Ace Art Inc. in Winnipeg and Co-Managing Editor of BlackFlash Magazine in Saskatoon. His most recent curatorial experiment, The Lewyc Institute of Contemporary Art (LICA), is an experimental space specializing in context and site-specific works by Canadian and international artists. Special thanks to our jurors, Enrico Gomez and Theo Sims, for all of their work and care with selecting the artists out of our largest applicant pool to date for the Untitled series of 253 submissions.

Theo Sims, Matthew Walker, Megan Morman, Justin Langlois, Collin Zipp  /  Into the Streets: Avenues for Art | Read More
Theo Sims, Matthew Walker, Megan Morman, Justin Langlois, Collin ZippInto the Streets: Avenues for Art Earlier this year we opened the 2nd edition of Into the Streets: Avenues for Art with various projects from Theo Sims, Matthew Walker and TRUCK Gallery. Theo Sims | CarPark Multi-disciplinary artist Theo Sims has garnered a reputation for an art practice that sites sculptural projects in social contexts often outside of the gallery. Wielding a sharp sense of humor, his objects include a working simulation of an Irish pub - The Candahar - which almost effortlessly prompted occasions for debate and dialogue. For Into the Streets: Avenues for Art, Sims looks beyond the gallery to the park surrounding it, installing a solitary asphalt parking stall (complete with a ticket booth and wooden barricade) upon the grassy lawns of Lethbridge's Galt Gardens. The startling displacement of such common urban vernacular, the parking stall, asks us to reconsider our relationship to natural lands versus manufactured landscapes, disrupts our expectations of public art, and serves as a literal platform for planned and spontaneous events and interventions. Theo Sims lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates site and context specific work. He received his B.F.A. from Brighton Polytechnic, England in 1992 and his M.A.(Fine Art) from the University Of Ulster, Belfast, N.Ireland in 1994. Sims previously served as Co-Managing Editor at BlackFlash Magazine (Saskatoon), Program Coordinator at Ace Art Inc. (Winnipeg), and Director at The Context Gallery in Derry (N.Ire). His most recent curatorial experiment, The Lewyc Institute of Contemporary Art (LICA) is a gallery specializing in context and site-specific works produced in (and sometimes on) Sims's own home. Sims has exhibited across Canada with solo exhibitions at The Tom Thomson Gallery in Owen Sound, The Rooms Provincial Museum and Art Gallery in Newfoundland, Presentation House Gallery in Vancouver, PlugIn ICA in Winnipeg, and the Illingworth Kerr Gallery in Calgary. He was featured as part of the Montreal Biennale in 2007, Calgary's inaugural Nuit Blanche in 2012 and in Ghost Dance curated by Steve Loft at the Ryerson Image Centre in 2013. Sims has also exhibited in numerous exhibitions internationally in Poland, Denmark, Mexico, Australia, U.S.A., UK and Ireland. His work is featured in reviews and publications such as Abridged, C Magazine, Circa, The Irish Times, The Sunday Times, The Globe & Mail, Beijing Today, Border Crossings, BlackFlash, The New York Times and Macleans Magazine.

Theo Sims has exhibited extensively across Canada and Europe in the past two decades. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Maclean's, C magazine, Border Crossings, Circa and BlackFlash. Sims's art is socially engaged. While sculptural, he rarely exhibits works in gallery contexts, deploying objects within situations that involve communities, instigate events and build relationships that test the boundaries of what might be called visual art. Social interaction is at the heart of Sims's The Candahar, a sculpture that invites our participation, and how we might consider the familiarity of a neighbourhood pub as a proposition for something more. Sims has invited artists residing in Northern Ireland and North America to create work for the walls of The Candahar, including pieces by Chris Roddy, Daniel Jewesbury, Locky Morris, Mark Orange, Brian Flynn, Richard Dyck, Paul Butler, Aurora Landin, Roger Crait, and a significant number of photographs donated by Wayne Giles.
