Object Biographies: Artists’ Lives through their Archives
Legacy Maltwood Gallery, UVic campus: September 19–January 12, 2020
A printing block. Glaze samples. Pouches of pigments. What can they tell us about the lives, relationships, artworks and practices of the artists who owned them? Bringing together materials from UVic’s Special Collections and University Archives in partnership with the Legacy Art Galleries, Object Biographies is a glimpse into the lives of artists. Curated by Bradley Clements with Caroline Riedel. Opening reception Sept 26, 4:30-6:30 lower level, Mearns Centre for Learning, McPherson Library, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
