Proof 30 artists Beau Gomez, Morgan Sears-Williams and Michaëlle Sergile discuss their artistic practices and thematic concerns during a tour proceeding the opening reception.


Referencing various media, places, and experiences, Proof 30 artists Beau Gomez, Morgan Sears-Williams and Michaëlle Sergile extend an invitation to reflect. Childhood photographs, archival television clips and local geographies constitute points of departure from which the artists develop concepts through film photography, textile weaving, video and 16mm film. Considering the contemporary context of their referenced material, each artist encourages new understandings from the familiar, and explores the malleability of personal and political subjectivity—and how these subjectivities evolve through changing relationships to identity and culture. 

Proof is Gallery 44’s annual group exhibition of work by emerging Canadian artists, reflecting a range of current concerns and practices in contemporary photography and lens-based media. Proof is often one of the first exhibitions in a professional context for an emerging artist. Past exhibitions have featured work by Kotama Bouabane, Leila Fatemi, Isabelle Hayeur, Anique Jordan, Laurie Kang, Germaine Koh, Luther Konadu, Meryl McMaster, Karice Mitchell, Elise Rasmussen and Althea Thauberger.
