Gord Peteran: Furniture
Book Launch and Reception
Wednesday, June 27, 2018
7 – 9 pm | Free
Please join us for a reception marking the launch of a new publication, Furniture, featuring the work of Toronto-based artist Gord Peteran with texts by artists, curators, and collectors including Glenn Adamson, William Anderson, Matthew Brower, Ian Carr-Harris, David Dorenbaum, Charles Hummel, Ernie Kerr, Judith Nasby, Michael Prokopow, and Ron Shuebrook.
Over the last four decades, Peteran has built an impressive and innovative body of work around the historical, conceptual, and psychological meanings of furniture. At the intersection of art, craft and design, the hybridity of his work challenges both expectations and language, offering insight into the vast malleability of the world of things.
The book launch and reception will take place at the Art Gallery of Guelph. All are welcome to attend; refreshments will be served. Books will be available for purchase at the event. The Art Gallery of Guelph is grateful to the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts whose investments support such inquiry, informing new art histories.
