Toys on Roids: Polaroid Photography by Sean Tubridy

Opening Reception:

Friday, November 7th, 6-9pm

Show Runs:

November 7 - December 24, 2008

Sean Tubridy’s work is inspired by the golden age of design a heyday of atomic age optimism with promises of robots, jetpacks and flying cars. Toys on Roids is a collection of over 60 Polaroids each staging a different narrative with toys, ranging from vintage tin robots to contemporary vinyl figurines.

Now that the fate of Polaroid film seems uncertain and could vanish forever, it is important to memorialize this one of a kind medium. Tubridy believes instant film must be saved, what else allows you to watch a memory form “out of hazy nothingness”, an image that cannot be deleted. To celebrate the the art of the Polaroid, Sean is encouraging everyone to bring their Polaroid cameras to the opening reception to show them off or take a few pictures of their own!

Soo Visual Arts Center is publishing its first art book, cataloging a selection of the Polaroids from the exhibition.
