Gallery goers had the opportunity to learn hands-on about the legacy of instant photography - Nuvango created an on-going community Polaroid wall using The Impossible Project’s instant cameras and film & asked gallery visitors to be a part of it. As the last producers of instant film in the world, this was an exciting and unique opportunity to get up close & intimate with Impossible’s brand new I-1 camera and have your portrait added to the cumulative exhibition. Instant also explored the narrative and nostalgic nature of Polaroids with an installation by The Found Polaroid Project, including an opportunity for gallery visitors to submit their own story about a found Polaroid chosen from our Found Polaroid wall. During this exhibition we also ran numerous FREE workshops, Impossible Project launched their NEW camera with us (you can still purchase Impossible Project Polaroid Cameras onsite (while supplies last)), and Kyler from the Found Polaroid Project ran two separate workshops (http://bit.ly/
A solo exhibition by Jake Sherman
I’m New Here invited gallery goers to experience life through the eyes of Jake Sherman, a born and bred Toronto artist. Sherman and his camera have a natural ability to acclimatize to any city, now having travelled far and wide to bring together street, documentary and conceptual photography, I’m New Here manifested through large-scale prints and colorful wheatpastes. Nuvango Gallery hosted this collision of grit and gloss for the entire month of May as part of the CONTACT Photography festival.

A connection of art and fashion, Colour Theory embraces the nuances of contemporary colour palettes, textures, and techniques. Gallery goers had the chance to explore the vibrant worlds of Callen Schaub, Julie Hawkins and the fashion design team of Nuvango Gallery & Goods as they intertwine their practices to create chromatic results.

Nuvango Gallery collaborated with curator Jason Edmiston present our exhibition, In Our Veins.
Feb. 11 - Mar. 11
In Our Veins was a collaborative installation and group exhibition which highlights the pop-cultural and pop-art influences of 19 artists from across North America. Nuvango Gallery converted into an intimate and curious space reflecting the home or studio of these artists most devoted collector, a character who seems to be stuck between a few decades of pop culture’s past. Moody decor, kitsch accents and nostalgic items brought visitors to the past, while viewing contemporary representations of this cult aesthetic. In Our Veins was designed to highlight the different channels each of these artists have taken, though they have stemmed from similar cultural roots. From tiki to horror, vinyl to antiques, the gallery became home to several different disciplines and styles - showcasing the artist’s very first influences and their latest adaptations.
