John Armstrong, Luis Jacob Featured at Free Talks this Saturday

Across Toronto September 22, 2012

Gallery Hop Toronto’s free tours and talks program on September 22 offers the opportunity to see several leading artists discussing their works first-hand.

At 1:30 p.m. at General Hardware Contemporary, artist John Armstrong will discuss his collaborative oil-on-photographic-print works created with Paul Collins. Contact Photography Festival artistic director Bonnie Rubenstein will join Armstrong in this discussion.

At 3 p.m. at Feheley Fine Arts, artist John Noestheden will discuss his experiences working with Shuvinai Ashoona alongside Art Gallery of Ontario curator Nancy Campbell.

At 3:15 p.m. at Jessica Bradley Inc., Shary Boyle, Canada’s representative at the 2013 Venice Biennale, will discuss her practice with Toronto Star art critic Murray Whyte.

At 3:30 p.m. at Stephen Bulger Gallery, New York–based photographer Alison Rossiter will chat about her latest exhibition “Lost and Found” with Canadian Art assistant editor David Balzer.

And at 4 p.m. at Birch Libralato, Luis Jacob will discuss the nature of “the picture” at his exhibition “Show Your Wound” with Canadian Art managing editor Bryne McLaughlin.

These are just a few of the talks on the roster—others by curator Lee-Ann Martin (at Gallery Gevik) and critic David Jager (who’s leading a tour of Parkdale galleries)—feature even more insights from art-world experts.

There’s also a compelling panel kicking off the day at 11 a.m. at the TIFF Bell Lightbox featuring artists Micah Lexier, Alain Paiement and Laurel Woodcock.
