Toronto, Canada: Paul + Wendy Projects, 2016
2.5 x 1 3/8"
Paul + Wendy Projects began almost a decade ago, in 2007, with the silk screen Poster Making by The Royal Art Lodge, one of the last projects the collective made before disbanding. They followed with works by Jonathan Monk, Micah Lexier, David Shrigley, Kay Rosen, Derek Sullivan, Maggie Groat, Jon Pylypchuk , Jason McLean, etc. etc. - thirty-five now, in total.
At /edition Toronto they return somewhat to their roots, presenting works by the three core members of the Royal Art Lodge: Marcel Dzama, Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber.
The first is an enamel pin by Dzama, which is available at the launch price of $15 (later $20). Featuring one of the artist's signature images - a bat - the work is titled after a 1974 Neil Young song.
Additionally, they will be featuring a selection of self published works by Dumontier and Farber: Dumontier's the sky and the ground (for Remy Charlip) and the collaborative personal messages cards (one of which just arrived in the mail from Winnipeg, see post later this week).
Visit Paul+Wendy Projects at Table 12 from October 28–31, 2016 at Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
