ARTIST TALK DOUBLE-BILL: LIBBY HAGUE | JENNIFER LAIWINT

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, BEGINNING AT 1 PM

 

Join us for an artist talk by Libby Hague, one of Canada's foremost print-based artists as she discusses her practice and the immersive installation of the past is never over, an unconventional retrospective exhibition.

 

Libby Hague’s work examines human and complex social relationships in our precarious and interconnected world. Her curiosity and love of invention led her to a hybrid practice of printmaking and installation.

 

Her solo exhibitions include Inventing Hope, Idea Exchange, Ontario; Walk With Me, Centre Clark, Montréal; Sympathetic Connections, Art Gallery of Ontario; Be Brave! We are in this together, YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Toronto; and One Step at a Time, Art Gallery of Mississauga. Group exhibitions include Habitat, Harbourfront Centre, Toronto and Kelowna Art Gallery; Build…Build Better, Zion Schoolhouse, Toronto; and All that glows, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax.

 

Following Libby's talk, Toronto-based artist Jennifer Laiwint will discuss her XIT-RM exhibition The Pick Up Artist.

 

Jennifer Laiwint is a Toronto-based artist who works across the disciplines of photography, video, text and performance. Her practice takes a research and process-based approach and explores the links between self-improvement culture and social performance. Jennifer has presented her work in galleries and artist-run centres across Canada and in the United States. She curated the performance and film event Fake It ‘til You Make It in Brooklyn and recently had shows at Xpace and the SummerWorks Performance Festival in Toronto.
