Artist Talk and Reception: Friday, February 24, 6:00 pm
Toronto artist Derek Sullivan is interested in the overlapping histories of modernist design, abstraction, and conceptual art. His works in various media (drawing, painting, sculpture, bookworks, and installation) are strategically contradictory: for instance, he replicates minimalist posters and books by conceptual artists by hand, in coloured pencil. Booklover brings together, for the first time, a retrospective of Sullivan’s bookworks, with intriguing and surprising additions, including a large-scale wall drawing, created by the artist onsite.
