Kyla Mallett Artist Talk tonight (Wed., June 27, 2012) from 7:30pm - 9pm at Art Metropole's new location (1490 Dundas Street W).
"Kyla Mallett is based in Vancouver and works primarily in photography and print media. Her practice engages with the intersection of culture and language, using archival and statistical research to examine transgressive activities in such cultural arenas such as adolescence, feminism, academia and art. Her current projects involving parapsychology and self-help materials focus on marginal and devalued forms of language and communication. She is exhibiting recent works at The Power Plant in Tools for Conviviality (opening June 29th). In these works Mallett has appropriated the cover and diagrams from a self-help guide that provides tools for self-improvement; through a process of editing, configuring, and resizing, Mallett creates an installation that is evocative of a celestial map.
Presented by Art Metropole in partnership with The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, in relation to Kyla Mallett's participation in The Power Plant's summer exhibition Tools for Conviviality running from June 30 - August 26, 2012."
