Stan Bevington In Residence
Every Wednesday 7-8pm beginning March 10, 2010
Coach House Press co-founder and master printer Stan Bevington will begin an ongoing series of weekly conversations at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The press's co-founder will take up residence in the exhibit space every Wednesday night, between 7 and 8 p.m., and speak with a new guest each week -- artistic figures from the era and visiting artists. Seated at the Coach House coffee table, Bevington will talk to guests about the pioneering work Toronto artists and the press were doing in the 60s and 70s and how these these innovations in photography and reproduction methods affected and influenced the artistic work being produced.
This series of fascinating (and completely free!) conversations with artists, designers and photographers (David Hylnsky, Barbara Astman, Rick/Simon, Dennis Reid and many more) is perfect for anyone with an interest in the evolution of printmaking and photographic reproduction, and all those with an interest in the cultural and artistic history of Toronto. The weekly conversations (which continue through August) will be recorded and available online at a later date.
