Canadian Art is pleased to return as a lead partner for Art Toronto’s 25th anniversary as Canada’s largest international art fair. Join us on-site to see a special artist project created by Ghazaleh Avarzamani (including a limited-edition artist multiple when you sign up for a subscription); join one of our editors’ tours, daily at 2 p.m.; and attend our main-stage panel inspired by our Fall 2019 issue, Undoing Painting, on Saturday evening.
Panel: Undoing Painting
Saturday, October 27, 6 p.m.
Featuring Ghazaleh Avarzamani, Amanda Boulos and Lyse Lemieux
Inspired by the theme of Canadian Art‘s Fall 2019 issue, this panel explores the ways that histories and hierarchies can be reshaped through contemporary ideas of painting as a flexible, undefined medium. Toronto artist Ghazaleh Avarzamani’s interdisciplinary practice considers a range of spaces, structures and devices for interactivity, self-development and play. Toronto artist Amanda Boulos creates new narratives out of stories and symbols drawn from her family’s experiences of the 1948 war in Palestine and ensuing Lebanese Civil War. And Vancouver artist Lyse Lemieux explores the spaces between abstraction and representation, while maintaining an interest in figuration.
