Relay is a fifteen-year, survey exhibition of art works by celebrated Canadian artist, Lois Andison. New works will also be created for the exhibition. Co- presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery, Rodman Hall Art Centre/ Brock University and University of Waterloo Art Gallery, the exhibition will be presented concurrently at all of the art galleries in the fall of 2014.
Publication: The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue, featuring texts by Canadian curators Ihor Holubizky, Ann MacDonald, and Jonathan Shaughnessy, to be published in the spring of 2015. The book will have a srong typographic presence, consistent with the artist's interest in language and wordplay.
About the artist: Louis Andison is a Canadian-born sculpture and installation artist who lives and works in Toronto, Ontario. Her art practice ranges from kinetic sculture, in which she uses movement to initiate an experience / exchange between the viewer and the work, to video and photography that documents and interprets both time and motion. Andison's sculptural works address the mediated body and the performative, often involving an element of humour. More recently, her conceptual interests -- in language as a medium, and kinetic type as movement -- have led to the incorporation of text into her sculptures.
Andison has exhibited nationally and internationally, in such cities as Mexico City, Boston, New York, Montréal, Lethbridge, and Buffalo. Her work can be found in both private and corporate collections including the National Gallery of Canada, Bank of Montreal, and Donovan Collection. Andison is currently an Associate Professor in the Fine Arts Department of the University of Waterloo. She is represented by Olga Korper Gallery, Toronto, and Art Mûr, Montréal.
