The pieces were for the most part pretty engaging too. I personally enjoyed the Axle/Void installation along one of the main walls. Lots of little interesting bits on this wall. From what I gathered he had interviewed someone from South America about their life, having them choose a selection of photographs that reflected aspects of daily life or meaningful moments. From this he designed and painted an installation mixed with his own socio-political messages. The large hangman piece (and there was a smaller one too) were definite attention grabbers that left you uneasy and a bit squimesh but you have to appreciate the artistic depiction and manner of putting issues like the public hanging of accused homosexuals to the forefront of an exhibit like this. Ballsy.
Here are some links to the OPP site, facebook page, and a couple of the artists and designers currently on the floor.
And check out this posting of the show and gallery, a very solid post with some nice and sexy pics: http://raymitheminx.com/2011/08/26/other-peoples-paintings/
