Multiples Panel Discussion

Last month Roula Partheniou and I gave a presentation to students at Ryerson on the topic of Artists' Multiples, followed by a brief workshop during which they transformed about $80 worth of dollar store crap into prototypes for multiples. The follow-up will involve their presentation of the eventual works they produced, and a panel discussion, which will also include Derek Sullivan. It takes place a week from today. The press release is below:

His books and editions have been published by Paul & Wendy Projects (Toronto), Art Metropole (Toronto), Boabooks (Geneva), Printed Matter Inc.

He is represented by Jessica Bradley Gallery (Toronto), Galerie Emmanuel Hervé (Paris) and Galerie Tatjana Pieters (Ghent).

Dave Dyment is a Toronto- based artist whose work encompasses audio, video, performance, and writing. His editions include Fifteen Minute Fame (2009), Sgt. Pepper's extended Lonely Hearts Club Band (2008), A Drink to Us [When We're Both Dead] (2009), and the artist book Pop Quiz. His work has been exhibited in Chicago, Dublin, Edmonton, Halifax, London, New York, Surrey, and Bulgaria. He is the co-editor of One For Me and One to Share: Artists Multiples and Editions. Dyment is represented by MKG127.

Roula Partheniou is an artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. Her work is marked by a concern for marriage of material and form and is drawn together by a strong sense of both logic and play. Using familiar objects as a starting point, she plays simple games using the objects' own inherent rules and physical properties to transform them, often employing processes such as repetition, permutation, multiplication and duplication. Partheniou graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and is represented by MKG127 in Toronto.
