a series of textile pieces that take words of wit and words of wisdom – all from a gay male perspective – and translates them into visual documents.

Description: 

Words, Wit, Wisdom and Wool is a series of textile pieces that take words of wit and words of wisdom – all from a gay male perspective – and translates them into visual documents. Gould states, “I have been rather catholic in my choice of sources, from the internet – Squirt.Org (enough said!) to poetry and prose – Walt Whitman and Thomas Glave – song lyrics and personal musings from my 90 year old mother. Some of the texts are bawdy, some loving and some perhaps slightly out there, but they all represent a grab bag of sentences and paragraphs that I have found inspiring and interesting and funny enough to lose blood over!”

Press Release

Biographies:

Matt Gould was born and raised on the prairies, lived in Toronto, France, Vancouver and on-board cruise ships plying the seas of Alaska, the Caribbean and New York to Bermuda. His work is found in public, corporate and private collections in Canada, the US and Europe. Gould has worked as an industrial, residential and commercial designer, a playwright, a singer and a theatre director, all of which feed his rapacious appetite for self-expression. He currently lives in Red Deer Alberta with his partner, where he walks the fine line between the solitary pursuit of a visual artist and the wildly communal existence of an Artistic Director for a theatre company.

CONSTRUCTION NOTICE:

As we continue our efforts to make The ArQuives more accessible, we are renovating the front of the house to add a ramp to the front entrance. Please note that there will not be any construction work done during public service hours. Should there be any disruptions affecting our access to the front door and/or work in the house during this process, we will post a notice as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we try to make The ArQuives more accessible to all. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact the Executive Director, Raegan Swanson, at executivedirector@arquives.ca


The ArQuives is located on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The ArQuives strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
