I thought I would post about my experience hosting and organizing an art exhibition. This was an exciting and anxious moment for my father and I as we prepared to launch our first book, Gagliato and photo exhibition to show our friends and family what we had been diligently working on for the past year. My father and I installed the entire show at The Joseph D. Carrier Gallery with the help of my cousin, Frankie (pictured below after we finished) and the gallery curator, Rosa Graci.

It was an awesome experience to select which photograph looked best placed in a certain position. Developing the flow and sequence of the photographs was surprisingly simple for us after editing an entire book – we only debated a few placements!

Rosa and the JDC Gallery staff did an excellent job catering to our requests as we prepared the space for the reveal of Gagliato.

Here are a few images of the installation process:

The final touch, which is featured in The Opening Exhibition | Part 2 – a vinyl decal of our logo which provided a modern and clean entrance into the exhibition.

Please check this out….and forward this on to as many others as you have patience to do:)

1) The Toronto theatrical run is now at the Carleton cinemas (yonge & carleton). Due to the big xmas pictures arriving in the main theaters, if they can, with your help, get a really good turnout for this week and weekend at the carleton they likely will be upgraded to the cumberland, or the canada square cinemas. And, the Carleton is being shut down on Sunday so this is a great reason to go experience this theatre!
2) The montreal theatrical run opens this friday, december 4th. at the ‘amc forum 22 cinemas’. Paul will be there to introduce the film and do q&a on friday and saturday, dec. 4 & 5, for both the 7:25 and 9:45 pm shows on each of those days. Please pass this news to anyone you know in the montreal area. (showtimes are: 12:00, 2:25, 4:45, 7:25, 9:45)


In 1997, Academy Award–winning actor Morgan Freeman offered to pay for the senior prom at Charleston High School in Mississippi under one condition: the prom had to be racially integrated. His offer was ignored. In 2008, Freeman offered again. This time the school board accepted, and history was made. Until then, blacks and whites had separate proms even though their classrooms have been integrated for decades. The film follows students, teachers, and parents in the lead-up to the big day. Freeman addresses the student body. Girls shop for dresses and get their hair done. Boys rent tuxedoes and buy corsages. These seemingly inconsequential rites of passage suddenly become profound as the weight of history falls on teenage shoulders. We quickly learn that change does not come easily in this sleepy Delta town. Freeman’s generosity fans the flames of racism—and racism in Charleston has a distinctly generational tinge. Some white parents forbid their children to attend the integrated prom, and hold a separate whites-only prom. “Billy Joe,” an enlightened white senior, appears on camera in shadow, fearing his racist parents will disown him if they see the film. Prom Night In Mississippi captures a big moment in a small town, where hope finally blossoms in black, white, and a whole lot of taffeta.

The beautiful moments were captured by Documentographer, Catherine Farquharson.

It is hard to believe that it has been just over a year since my dad, Nicola Gareri and I launched our first book, Gagliato at the Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery in Toronto.

We were fortunate to receive some excellent coverage from local media.

Special thanks to Dave Kennedy at SNAP North Toronto and CityLife Magazine for their support of our book and exhibition.
