Heaven is a Place on Earth at Patel ProjectsMay 31, 2019
I’m excited to announce my forthcoming solo exhibition Heaven is a Place on Earth that will be opening at Patel Projects the evening of June 13th. The exhibition runs from June 13 - July 25 and consists of all new work.
The gallery is located at 184 Munro St and accessed at the rear.
Heaven is a Place on Earth explores the potential for queerness along the spectrum of utopia to dystopia. Drawing from lesbian representation in fiction and popular culture, Crossman combines imagery and ephemera from cult narratives such as ‘But I’m a Cheerleader’ and ‘Desert Hearts’, with objects that make reference to Toronto’s own lost queer and lesbian spaces, blurring the lines between fiction and reality.
This work is made possible through funding from the Ontario Arts Council.
