Circuit Gallery specializes in contemporary photography. Established in 2008 by Susana Reisman and Claire Sykes, the Toronto based commercial gallery represents both emerging and established Canadian and international artists.
In 2014 Circuit Gallery entered a presentation partnership with Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, giving the gallery a new exhibition venue in the 401 Richmond building, a destination arts-hub in downtown Toronto. Circuit Gallery @ Prefix ICA holds four exhibitions a year at this location.
Circuit Gallery also operates Circuit Editions, an online shop that aims to make interesting, significant, quality, contemporary art more accessible by making it more affordable. We do so by selling work in relatively large editions and online, thus bringing art and photography to a wider audience and cultivating new collectors.
Susana was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1977. She received a BA in Economics from Wellesley College (Boston, MA) in 1999 and an MFA in photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, New York) in 2005. After teaching photography for a number of years, Susana now dedicates her time to making art and running Circuit. She lives and works in Toronto.
Claire holds graduate degrees in Art History (Western University, 1999) and Visual and Cultural Studies (University of Rochester, 2006). Alongside her work for Circuit, Claire is Curator and Program Director for Cape Farewell (North America) a non-profit foundation that brings artists and scientist together to create projects that seek to capture the public’s attention and bring the realities of climate change down to a human scale. Claire brings over fifteen years of practical experience in curation and project management to this venture.
