The Jackman Humanities Institute Program for the Arts on Time, Rhythm & Pace is pleased to present:

Julien Prévieux: The Elements of Influence (with a Ghost)

A new exhibition of art by Julien Previeux at the Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto Mississauga

The Blackwood Gallery reopens for the winter on January 18, 2017, with a solo exhibition by French artist Julien Prévieux. Bringing together a selection of recent work that explores eye-movement-tracking technology, the patent system, police crime mapping, and Bernie Madoff’s book collection, Prévieux highlights each mechanism’s potential for play, creativity, productivity, and counter-productivity.

Opening Reception and Performance
Wednesday, January 18, 4–8pm
Performances of What Shall We Do Next? 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm
Featuring Allie Hankins, Syreeta Hector, Bee Pallomina, and Kaitlin Standeven
A FREE shuttle bus will depart from Jackman Humanities Institute (170 St. George Street) at 5:30pm and return for 8:30pm.

Work, management, economics, politics, control systems, state-of-the-art technologies, and the culture industry are the many ‘worlds’ that French artist Julien Prévieux’s activities interrogate. The methods of recording movement and gesture developed over the last century and a half led to aesthetic results that recall the formal explorations of modernist art. Playing on this resemblance, Julien Prévieux transforms these records – originally produced for the sake of productivity, profit or surveillance – into pure form. Using map-making, dance, theatre, sculpture, video, and drawing, his work appropriates the vocabulary, mechanisms and modus operandi of the sectors by which it is informed to highlight their dogmas and excesses. Exploring eye-movement-tracking technology, the patent system, police crime mapping, Bernie Madoff’s book collection and relics of crisis in this solo exhibition at the Blackwood Gallery, Prévieux highlights each mechanism’s potential for play, creativity, productivity, and counter-productivity.
