Eyre in Comparison: Personal Experience and the Universal Subject
February 23, 2020 to September 20, 2020
Eyre has emphasized that his work requires viewers to subjectively construct meaning through their own personal experience.
Eyre in Comparison: Personal Experience and the Universal Subject focuses on themes related to the gendered and sexual nature of humans and questions whether these themes can be depicted objectively through the male gaze.
The exhibition attempts to expose Eyre’s own positionality, as part of a long historic precedent of male domination in the art sphere, through displaying his work alongside the work of five Canadian female artists.
