Scene Otherwise takes a number of artistic conventions and images and re-imagines them in terms of contemporary concerns. The first exhibition of the work of Condé + Beveridge in Toronto in over eight years, it brings together a number of projects that address issues of the environment, economics and politics.
Included in the exhibition are works on the four elements: The Fall of Water (the global politics of water based on a painting by Bruegel) , Salt of the Earth ( a black and white series produced in collaboration with migrant farm workers) , UnderFire (a studio portrait of Greenpeace activists) and Airwave (a 7.5 minute video based on Michael Snow's Wavelength). Other works include The Plague (a portrait of the 2008 financial crisis), Liberty Lost (a response to the G20 police actions in Toronto), and Multiple Exposures (a series depicting a single landscape that changes over 600 years).

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
