Luis Jacob in conversation with Emelie Chhangur, Katie Lawson, and Wanda Nanibush, and moderated by Parker Kay. Introductory remarks by Barbara Fischer.
In Form Follows Fiction: Art and Artists in Toronto, internationally renowned Toronto-based artist, writer, and curator Luis Jacob considers the ways in which artists visualize Toronto throughout a period of fifty years.
Presenting a thematic clustering of works by 86 artists, the richly illustrated book is premised on the tendency of artists in the city to favour performative and allegorical procedures to articulate their sense of place.
Form Follows Fiction: Art and Artists in Toronto is published by the Art Museum in partnership with Black Dog Press. Special thanks to the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts for their kind support.
The book may be purchased on Art Metropole’s website.
