Catalogue Launch : Glimmers of the Radiant Real

June 09, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Join us, the curators Sam Mogelonsky and Ruth Jones, and artists for the launch of the exhibition catalogue for Glimmers of the Radiant Real.

What happens when surfaces glitter, gleam, sparkle, and shine? In Glimmers of the Radiant Real, radiance, that quality of projected light we associate so often with the marvelous and the modern, is subverted by the relationship between the quality of a surface and what it covers, reflects, or contains. The glistening, shining surfaces of works by Katie Bethune-Leamen, the Broadbent Sisters, Daniel Griffin Hunt, Sanaz Mazinani, Sandy Plotnikoff, Mary Pratt, Cole Swanson, Catherine Telford-Keogh, and Xiaojing Yan manipulate the viewer’s perception of dimension through reflections and refractions, thereby un-forming the object and making the familiar strange.

The gallery is barrier-free and there will be ASL interpretation during the talk and tour.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, ASL interpretation will no longer be provided for this event. We sincerely apologize.

From Toronto? A free bus will leave from Mercer Union at 1pm and return to Mercer Union at 4:45pm after the launch. Seating available by reservation. Click here to reserve your seat.
