Respondent Series | Artist Talk with Shannon Bool
Berlin-based artist, Shannon Bool, will be presenting a talk on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 7pm. The talk is in conjunction with the exhibition, Days of Reading: beyond this state of affairs, which opens Saturday, September 29th, 2018. The Canadian born artist’s stream of work has always permutated in diverging forms to include murals, sculpture, tapestries, and photograms. She continues to concentrate her works in visual codes that are entrenched in popular culture, art history, pre-historic and ancient civilizations. Bool’s talk will cover her expansive practice, as well as her commissioned contribution for the upcoming fall exhibition: All Saints Bench. This new work is an extension from a previous line of work that is also involved with surface, ornamentation and their historical, emotional and poetic resonance.
This is the first presentation of Bool’s work in Winnipeg. We are privileged to host her work along with an esteemed list of artists gathered for Days of Reading: beyond this state of affairs.
We would also like to recognize Daniel Faria for his support of All Saints Bench and Fabris and Watts for their support in producing this new work by Bool.
