The work of Barbara Astman will be exhibited as part of the Art Gallery of Ontario's new installation "Look Again: Colour Xerography - Art Meets Technology at the AGO".

In the mid-1970s several young Canadian artists embraced the cutting-edge technology of the colour Xerox machine. Six of them - Robert Arn, Barbara Astman, Flavio Belli, Michael Bidner, Michael Hayden and Jaan Poldaas - joined forces with curator Karyn Allen during an exciting two-week exhibition at the AGO in the fall of 1976. As an art medium, xerography made it possible to produce inexpensive copies of virtually any image or object. It allowed artists to play with images from the mass media, recombining or altering them for their own use. Visitors today will recognize this art form as a precursor to the pervasive circulation of digital images today.

This installation draws upon our rich archival holdings of Astman and Bidner from the 1976 exhibition.
