Please join us to celebrate the work of Canadian multidisciplinary artist Lois Andison at the catalogue launch for lois andison: relay.

Co-published by the Doris McCarthy Gallery, Rodman Hall Art Centre/Brock University and the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, and designed by Lauren Wickware, lois andison: relay accompanies the 2014 three-venue mid-career survey of Andison’s artistic production during the last fifteen years. Comprised of three distinct exhibitions undertaken by curators at three university galleries, each focused on a particular aspect of Andison’s oeuvre and taken together, they reveal the depth of her practice. The catalogue features texts by Ann MacDonald, Ihor Holubizky and Jonathan Shaughnessy.

The publication will be available for sale for $30.00 plus HST.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Lois Andison is a Canadian-born sculpture and installation artist who lives and works in Toronto, Ontario. Her art practice ranges from kinetic sculpture, in which she uses movement to initiate an experience/exchange between the viewer and the work, to video and photography that documents and interprets both motion and time. Andison’s sculptural works address the mediated body and the performative, often involving an element of humour. More recently, her conceptual interests – in language as a medium, and kinetic type as movement – have led to the incorporation of text into her sculptures. Andison has exhibited nationally and internationally, in such cities as Mexico City, Boston, New York, Montréal, Lethbridge, and Buffalo. Her work can be found in both private and corporate collections including the National Gallery of Canada, Bank of Montreal, and Donovan Collection. Andison is currently an Associate Professor in the Fine Arts Department of the University of Waterloo. She is represented by Olga Korper Gallery, Toronto, and Art Mûr, Montréal.
