CONTEMPORARY NOW an Introductory Essay by Bill Clarke

Thinking about trends in contemporary Canadian art may seem trivial during these difficult times; however, in practical terms, it is not. Arts and culture is a powerful economic driver. In 2017, this sector contributed over $26 billion to Ontario's GDP and employed over 300,000 people. How quickly it rebounds in the coming months will affect how soon other related activities, like tourism, resume. How things will look by 2021 is unpredictable but, hopefully, Canada's commercial galleries and public institutions will continue weathering the storm. Two things are certain, however: the arts sector and its workers are resilient, and, in recent years, being Canadian has carried a certain cache, with many artists – Sara Cwynar, Tammi Campbell, Liz Magor, Suzy Lake, Shaan Syed, Brendan Fernandes – being covered by foreign publications, presented at noteworthy American and European institutions and embraced by the international art market.

Secondly, technology has profoundly changed how we engage with art, which became particularly evident when galleries and museums had to close for a few months earlier this year. Social media platforms like Instagram, particularly in the hands of tech- and marketing- savvy Millennial and Generation Z artists and dealers, are usurping the traditional ways of viewing and buying art (i.e., in person at a gallery). Algorithm-based recommendations are slowly replacing the personal art consultant and online auctions are by now common. Such digital tools support the growing trend of artists managing their own careers rather than signing with galleries or agents. And, while many of us enjoy afternoons of gallery hopping, the reality is galleries are finding it harder to maintain brick-and-mortar spaces in increasingly expensive cities. As a result, online art platforms, either digital extensions of physical galleries or start-ups with no permanent exhibition spaces, will continue to launch and may eventually replace the white cube.

Over the last three years, the art world – I'll discard the qualifier “Canadian” now, as artists, critics, collectors, dealers and curators working here are as attuned to international trends as their New York or London-based counterparts – has been responding to two significant cultural shifts. The first concerns gender parity, which is why most of the artists named above are women. In 2017, the #MeToo movement raised awareness of the power imbalances between women and men within the art world. Since then, the number of women added to gallery's rosters, the critical attention paid to their work, the mounting of institutional shows, the re-discovery of 'forgotten' women artists, climbing prices at auction for their work, and women moving into leadership roles at museums has risen, though there is still a lot to do before parity is truly achieved.

Lastly, how can collectors support the art world and artists during these uncertain times? Dedicated collectors, those who understand how crucial culture remains at times of crisis, will continue to look at and buy and be honest stewards of artists' work. Those who consider art an investment may find the current climate conducive for acquiring art in a potentially less-competitive environment; however, they shouldn't just cynically stand by, waiting to take advantage. Rather, we should celebrate Canadian art by exhibiting the same passion for creativity being demonstrated even now by artists across the country. Because this is the feeling art should stir.

In addition, movements like Black Lives Matter, which experienced a resurgence this summer, Idle No More and, in Canada specifically, the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee, continue to push galleries and museums to enhance racial diversity in artist signings, staff hiring, and exhibition and collection-building practices. The Art Gallery of Ontario's purchase of artworks by Indigenous artists, artists of colour and women at the last two iterations of Art Toronto exemplifies how public institutions are redressing imbalances within collections. Indeed, the most high-profile Canadian artists working today are women of Indigenous, mixed or non-European backgrounds, such as Sandra Brewster, Erika DeFreitas, Deana Bowen, Meryl McMaster, Rajni Perera, Tau Lewis, Esmaa Mohamoud, Rebecca Belmore and Maria Hupfield.

Buying at Waddington’s All lots will be offered and sold subject to the Conditions of Sale which appear in this catalogue as well as any Glossary and posted or oral announcement. By bidding at auction, bidders are bound by those Conditions and Glossary, as amended by any oral announcement or posted notices, which together form the contract of sale between the successful bidder (buyer), Waddington’s™ and the consignor (seller) of the lot. Descriptions or photographs of lots are not warranties and each lot is sold “as is” in accordance with the Conditions of Sale.

condition of lots

All of the items are to be considered, unless otherwise noted in the description or condition report, in good condition. The definition of “good” when used in reference to condition, describes an object as having had no major damage or repair but as with the nature of the material, may show minor surface wear, discolouration etc., which indicates the acceptable wear that the piece may acquire with age. If you are particular about minor flaws, you should examine the pieces in person or have our staff answer any questions before bidding. Sizes are approximate. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to inquire as to the condition of a lot before bidding. Condition reports are available upon request by phone, fax, email or in person. You are advised to make any requests well in advance of the sale. Frames on artwork are not included as part of purchase or condition.

buyers premium

A premium of 20% of the successful bid price of each lot. A charge of 13% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) is applicable on the hammer price and buyer’s premium, except for purchases exported from Canada. In the case where purchases are shipped out of the province of Ontario, the HST or GST is charged based on the tax status of that province.

payment

Payment for purchases must be by cash, INTERAC direct debit (CDN clients in person only), certified cheque (U.S. & Overseas not applicable), travelers cheque, bank draft, electronic transfer (fee applies), VISA or Mastercard (up to $25,000). ALL PRICES IN CANADIAN FUNDS

Conditions of Sale 1. All lots are sold “AS IS”. Any description issued by the auctioneer of an article to be sold is subject to variation to be posted or announced verbally in the auction room prior to the time of sale. While the auctioneer has endeavoured not to mislead in the description issued, and the utmost care is taken to ensure the correct cataloguing of each item, such descriptions are purely statements of opinion and are not intended to constitute a representation to the prospective purchasers and no warranty of the correctness of such description is made. An opportunity for inspection of each article is offered prior to the time of sale. No sale will be set aside on account of lack of correspondence of the article with its description or its reproduction, if any, whether colour or black & white. Some lots are of an age and/or nature which preclude their being in pristine condition and some catalogue descriptions make reference to damage and/or restoration. The lack of such a reference does not imply that a lot is free from defects nor does any reference to certain defects imply the absence of others. Frames on artwork are not included as part of purchase or condition. It is the responsibility of prospective purchasers to inspect or have inspected each lot upon which they wish to bid, relying upon their own advisers, and to bid accordingly. 2. Each lot sold is subject to a 20% buyers premium as part of the purchase price. 3. Unless exempted by law, the buyer is required to pay Harmonized Sales Tax on the total purchase price including the buyer’s premium. For international buyers, taxes are not applicable when purchases are shipped out of country. Items shipped out of Ontario, the buyer is required to pay taxes as per the tax status of that province, whether it HST or GST (Goods and Services Tax).

6. Each lot may be subject to an unpublished reserve which may be changed at any time by agreement between the auctioneer and the consignor. The auctioneer may bid, or direct an employee to bid, on behalf of the consignor as agreed between them. In addition, the auctioneer may accept and submit absentee and telephone bids, to be executed by an employee of the auctioneer, pursuant to the instructions of prospective purchasers not in attendance at the sale. 7. The highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer for any lot shall be the buyer and such buyer shall forthwith assume full risk and responsibility for the lot and must comply with such other Conditions of Sale as may be applicable. If any dispute should arise between bidders the auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to designate the buyer or, at his option, to withdraw any disputed lot from the sale, or to re-offer it at the same or a subsequent sale. The auctioneer’s decision in all cases shall be final. 8. Immediately after the purchase of a lot, the buyer shall pay or undertake to the satisfaction of the auctioneer with respect to payment of the whole or any part of the purchase price requested by the auctioneer, failing which the auctioneer in his sole discretion may cancel the sale, with or without re-offering the item for sale. 9. The buyer shall pay for all lots within 48 hours from the date of the sale, after which a late charge of 2% per month on the total invoice may be incurred or the auctioneer, in his sole discretion, may cancel the sale. The buyer shall not become the owner of the lot until paid for in full. Items must be removed within 10 days from the date of sale, after which storage charges may be incurred.

4. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot from sale at any time, to divide any lot or to combine any two or more lots at his sole discretion, all without notice.

10. Each lot purchased, unless the sale is cancelled as above, shall be held by the auctioneer at his premises or at a public warehouse at the sole risk of the buyer until fully paid for and taken away.

5. The auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion. The auctioneer reserves the right not to accept and not to reject any bid. Without limitation, any bid which is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, or which is merely a nominal or fractional advance over the previous bid may not be recognized.

11. Notwithstanding condition no. 1, if the buyer, prior to removal of a lot, makes arrangements satisfactory to the auctioneer for the inspection of such lot by a fully qualified person acceptable to the auctioneer to determine the genuineness or authenticity of the lot, to be carried out promptly following the sale of the lot, and if, but only if, within a period of 14

days following the sale a written opinion of such person is presented to the auctioneer to the effect that the lot is not genuine or authentic, accompanied by a written request by the buyer for rescission of the sale, then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the sale price refunded to the buyer. 12. Payment for purchases must be by cash, INTERAC direct debit (Cdn clients in person only), certified cheque (U.S. & Overseas not applicable), travelers cheque, bank draft, electronic transfer (fee applies), and VISA or Mastercard (up to $25,000). 13. In the event of failure to pay for or remove articles within the aforementioned time limit, the auctioneer, without limitation of the rights of the consignor and the auctioneer against the buyer, may resell any of the articles affected, and in such case the original buyer shall be responsible to the auctioneer and the consignor for: (a) any deficiency in price between the resale amount and the amount to have been paid by the original buyer; (b) any reasonable charge by the auctioneer for the storage of such articles until payment and removal by the subsequent buyer; and (c) the amount of commission which the auctioneer would have earned had payment been made in full by the original buyer. 14. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make all arrangements for insuring, packing and removing the property purchased and any assistance by the auctioneer or his servants, agents or contractors, in packing or removal shall be rendered as a courtesy and without any liability to them. 15. The auctioneer acts solely as agent for the consignor and makes no representation as to any attribute of, title to, or restriction affecting the articles consigned for sale. Without limitation, the buyer understands that any item bought may be affected by the provisions of the Cultural Property Export Act (Canada). 16. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse admission to the sale or to refuse to recognize any or all bids from any particular person or persons at any auction.
