    With You and Others

    Curated by artist Kevin Rodgers, With You and Others is an exhibition of rare artists’ books and other printed matter gifted to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre by artist and collector Ted Rettig. The exhibition treats the book as both object and image, reconsidering the encounter with the page, and contemplates reading as a performative and personal act. With You and Others looks at books as places of both solitude and sharing through works by John Baldessari, John Greer, Lise Melhorn-Boe, General Idea, Gerhard Richter, Clive Robertson, Ed Ruscha, Ian Wallace, Joyce Wieland and others.

    Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Kingston, ON.


    Upcoming projects include a solo exhibition at the Union Gallery (Kingston) in November 2015, a curated exhibition at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre of the collected books of Ted Rettig (January to May 2016) and a two month residency at the Nida Art Colony in Lithuania (April to May 2016).

    Curator: Vincent Bonin

    In collaboration with the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery

    A gap always manifests itself between the publication of a text in one language and that of its translation, or between the inaugural presentation of an artwork in one context and its subsequent display. In this project, presented in two installments, the first at the Leonard and Bina Ellen Art Gallery of Concordia University and the second at Dazibao, curator Vincent Bonin addressed this phenomenon of deferred reception of theories and art. A section of the first part focused on the assimilation of writings by French philosophers in English-speaking visual arts milieus from the late 1970s until today. Bonin mapped this trajectory in an indexical manner by alluding to the network of institutions and communities of elective affinities that intercepted these texts and recycled them. In the second part of the project, this narrative of North American imports of “French Theory” takes a different tack as Bonin highlights the ways in which artists, critics, theorists and curators graft affect onto the transmission of these discourses and references. Collaboration – while not suspending the power relations that exist between these aforementioned protagonists -, become a means to safeguard the concept of autonomy within the heteronomous field of art. The first part consisted in a series of micro-exhibitions following the sequence of interconnected rooms at the Leonard and Bina Ellen gallery. In the second installment, Bonin is taking into account Dazibao’s open presentation space in order to make the connections between the participants’ works and statements even more perceptible.

  • SEPTEMBER 2014

    Participant in The Golden USB, by Marilou Lemmens and Richard Ibghy. Vox (Montreal).

    The Golden USB is an installation by Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens that gives form to the idea of an interstellar trade capsule. Housed in a gold USB flash memory device, the capsule is intended for travel aboard a probe headed towards the stars beyond our solar system. Following in the footsteps of the Pioneer Plaque (1972-1973) and The Golden Record (1977), which introduced human civilization to extraterrestrials, The Golden USB (2014) is an invitation to make contact and begin a trade relationship.
