Close Encounters Series - Alex Colville: Self and Other

The Close Encounters Series

Public $12 | Members $10 | Students $8

This summer, Sarah Milroy had the poignant task of drafting Colville's obituary for the Globe and Mail, focusing on themes of mortality and human frailty in his art. Her talk deals with a related theme: the way in which Colville's haunting works are structured around the tension and space between the self and those we encounter, and the essentially solitary nature of human experience. Join Milroy in exploring a selection of Colville's prints, drawings and watercolours from the AGO collection.
