Canadian Art Foundation Gallery Hop Day Panel Conversation | Inside Story
Join us for the panel that will set the tone for Gallery Hop Day. Themed on the idea of “Inside Story,” the panel will include Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes in conversation with artists Dana Claxton, Sky Glabush and Yam Lau.
“Inside Story” is another way of saying that there is more than meets the eye. This tabloid terminology signals the promise of more—suggesting the intentions of artists in making their work. This year, it helps us point to the narrative potentials of contemporary art as it spreads across media. The title is a vehicle for us to highlight the interactive ways in which art engages with knowledge and experience. It is a gauge for how artists think through the connective capacity of their art, and how they craft story potentials into objects and works that lead to interrogations of history, social space and the flood of images that defines contemporary reality. “Inside Story” gets us closer to the nature of things. It is the route to the attitudes and motivations that shape what we see. It is what holds us as we look at art and what we take away to tell others.
