Event description

Description

Karsten Lund, Associate Curator of the Renaissance Society, leads an informal tour of Liz Magor's solo exhibition, BLOWOUT.

For more than four decades, Magor's practice has quietly dramatized the relationships that develop among objects. Drawing on materials familiar from daily life, she carefully pairs elements of tenderness and exposure, often playing soft against hard, weak against strong, hand-made against mass-produced. Manipulating found objects much in the way an author gathers fragments of stories, the Canadian artist brings them together into a newly commissioned body of work that she describes as "a collection of tiny intense narratives."
