Description

Artist talk by Graham Fagen
Monday, February 12
1 – 2 pm
AA304, Arts & Administration Building, U of T Scarborough

Join us for a free, public talk by Graham Fagen as part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery, and Studio program in the Department of Arts, Culture & Media at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Graham Fagen is one of the most influential artists working in Scotland today. His work mixes media and crosses continents; combining video, performance, photography and sculpture with text, live music and plants. Fagen’s recurring artistic themes, which include flowers, journeys and popular song, are used as attempts to understand the powerful forces that shape our lives. He has exhibited at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh and at the Gallery of Modern Art and Tramway in Glasgow. He has also taken part in exhibitions in England, at Tate Britain and the Victoria and Albert Museum, in France, Poland, the United States and Asia. Graham Fagen represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2015 with a project coordinated by Hospitalfield, Arbroath.
