Virtual Curator’s tour with David MacWilliam
Sunday, September 27th, 2020, 1PM
Join guest curator David MacWilliam for a live virtual tour of Griffin Art Project’s current exhibition NOW BULLETIN Artworks, Letters and Printed Matter from the Garry Neill Kennedy Collection 1968 – 2019.
Now Bulletin is an exhibition, residency series, public art project and public program on the archive, collection and works of eminent Vancouver artist and former NSCAD president, Garry Neill Kennedy. Reflecting on hospitality, history, memory and the archive in relation to Kennedy and his long history at NSCAD, this project also invites previous NSCAD graduates to collaboratively explore this history through Canadian and international residencies, public programs and a publication.
Currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia, David MacWilliam is an educator, independent curator and visual artist whose practice is primarily concerned with the societal role of art, the relationships between forms and colour, and painting as labour. MacWilliam completed his BFA at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and his MA in Visual Arts at the University of the Arts, London. As Professor Emeritus of the Audain Faculty of Art, MaWilliam taught at Emily Carr University of Art + Design for twenty nine years. His work has been exhibited extensively in Canada and occasionally in Europe.
