Titled Six Characters In Search of a Photograph, after Luigi Pirandello’s famous play Six Characters In Search of an Author, a play that blurs reality with acting, Fausta Facciponte’s photographic series explores the social constructs of the art world: its players and activities. Using an absurd collection of decorative household items, Fausta composes each image around a central protagonist: the artist, the curator, the collector, and the muse are arranged in a fictional display.

Date: May 15–June 29
Location: Art Gallery of Mississauga, 300 City Centre Dr., Mississauga ON
