Dave Dyment | Pop Quiz

Dave Dyment [Emily Falvey, Lucy MacDonald, Geordie Miller]
Pop Quiz
Sackville, Canada: Owens Art Gallery, 2019
16 pp., 23 x 15 cm., staplebound
Edition size unknown

A booklet published on the occasion of a solo exhibition showing of the video (and bookwork) Pop Quiz, a work which collects every question from every lyric in my music collection. This slim volume features a foreword by Director Emily Falvey, a text by curator Lucy MacDonald and an interview conducted by poet Geordie Miller (whose questions also come from pop lyrics).

Pop Quiz continues at the Owens Art Gallery until February 20th, two weeks from today. The work plays on a continuous loop: inside the gallery during opening hours and on the exterior of the building in the evenings.

Also on view is Juan Ortiz-Apuy: Fountain Mist. For more information, visit the gallery site, here.
