Jason Evans

Grange Prize Photographer-in-Residence
April 8 – May 15, 2013

Jason Evans

As The Grange Prize Photographer-in-Residence at the AGO, Welsh photographer Jason Evans’ work will be featured in a Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival public installation at the AGO. Evans, a 2012 Grange Prize nominee, will also facilitate public photography workshops and present a live performance at AGO 1st Thursdays.

Aiming to make visible a broad range of people working at the AGO, Jason collaborated with 12 groups of employees to create the series A long, long time AGO. The work will be on view on the AGO’s Dundas Street façade and inside the Elizabeth & Tony Comper Gallery on Level 1 from May 1-31.

Jason's free public workshops aim to introduce participants to a range of issues raised by photographic portraiture and create a portrait of their own in response to this.

At the AGO 1st Thursday on May 2, Evans will move through the Galleries with a roving DJ station, playing records from his personal collection for artworks in the AGO collection in a performance titled Music for Looking. Read more about Jason Evans at
