Spectacle and Impermanence: Six Images in Search of an Artist

  Friday November 12, 2010


  Meeting Place & Gallery 1265

Spectacle and Impermanence engages students and faculty on all three campuses of the University of Toronto. Prominent Toronto-based visual artists will present small prototypes of larger - often spectacular in size - projects. Each installation/ presentation will be followed by a discussion session with students and faculty led by a moderator/ respondent. The discussion sessions will attempt to locate these very temporal works... within the broader architectural and cultural discourse on public space, identity and the city.

At UTSC, Tanya Mars, internationally renowned performance artist and University of Toronto professor (UTSC) will present a 6 hour rendition of mega-sized 14 hour performance work 6 Images in Search of an Artist (performed in Mexico, France, Sweden, Finland and Poland throughout 2008) The performance draws inspiration from the medieval tapestry, Tenture de la Dame a la Licorne, exploring and exploiting the senses. The performance will be followed by a discussion of the work and its themes and a reception at Gallery 1265.

Performance l 10am-4pm

Discussion with Andy Payne (Architecture) l 4-5pm

Reception l 5-6pm
