Curatorial talk by Jeffrey Spalding, C.M., RCA

Saturday, October 29, 2pm
Art Toronto, Metro Toronto Convention Centre
Barbara Edwards Contemporary, Booth C74

Barbara Edwards Contemporary is pleased to present a curatorial talk on Sorel Etrog by Jeffrey Spalding. Spalding is an artist, author and has served as Director at major art museums. He is Senior Curator, Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton, New Brunswick. He was President, Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, recipient of the Alberta College of Art and Design Board of Governors Award of Excellence (1992) and awarded the Order of Canada (2007).

Born in Romania, Sorel Etrog immigrated to Canada in 1963 and quickly established himself as one of North America's pre-eminent sculptors. With a career spanning over 50 years and collaborations with the likes of Samuel Beckett, John Cage and Marshall McLuhan, Etrog developed a complex visual vocabulary which he used to express meaning in the human condition through abstract form. Etrog was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1994. His work is in the permanent collection of many Canadian and international institutions, including the Art Gallery of Ontario; the National Gallery of Canada; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the Tate Gallery in London.
