Michael Snow Performing Time

Beloved Canadian art-star Michael Snow packed in a full house at the Ontario College of Art & Design for Performing Time: Michael Snow in Conversation with Bruce Elder, the latest instalment of OCAD's lecture series, Art Creates Change.

The audience was delighted to discover the titles, dates, dimensions and a little of the context of some of his famous works. Snow's nonchalant attitude set the tone for the event, which at least to me felt like a grandfather relating his gardening activities, only replace "and this is where I planted the peas" to "and this is where I glued Polaroid's to a mirror" and you get the idea, rather than an auteur revelling in his audience's reverence.
