Shary Boyle: Flesh and Blood

Shary Boyle: Flesh and Blood
September 15 – December 5, 2010

Shary Boyle, one of the decade’s most buzzed-about Canadian artists, was awarded the $25,000 Gershon Iskowitz Prize at the AGO in 2009 for her outstanding contribution to visual arts in Canada. Boyle is a multidisciplinary artist who works fluidly between drawing, painting, sculpture, projection, and installation. Featuring 28 works, including four large-scale installations, the exhibition will immerse the viewer in Boyle’s fantastical, multifaceted vision. It will be installed in four of the AGO’s major European galleries, and Boyle will be presenting selected works in conversation with a number of key works in the AGO’s European collection.

Following its debut at the AGO, this exhibition will visit the Galerie de l’UQAM, Montreal from January 7 through February 12, 2011, and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver from June 17 through August 15, 2011.

Shary Boyle: Flesh and Blood is curated by Louise Déry and is organized and circulated by the Galerie de l’UQAM, Montreal, in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ontario and with the support of Canadian Heritage and the Conseil des arts et des letters du Québec.
