Radiant Dark: Part 1
by sabine7 / February 26, 2008


Although in its inaugural year, Radiant Dark was an important exhibition that took place last week in Toronto, alongside Come Up to My Room and IDS. Curated by MADE’s Shaun Moore and Julie Nicholson, Radiant Dark was a show that focused on themes of darkness and luxury, very interesting in light of the massive fire that destroyed several historic buildings in the very same block the day the show was meant to open. There were over 70 works from a variety of Canadian industrial designers, artists, architects and craftspeople in a hushed space that served as an excellent backdrop for a show that was thought provoking and visually compelling. The themes lent cohesion to the pieces and the flow of the show was very natural, from Molo’s curvy black paper walls to the repetition of black, white and gold, reflecting precisely the radiance and the darkness.
