Shary Boyle Artist Talk

Thursday, January 25, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Thursday, January 25, 1 to 2 p.m.
Shary Boyle Artist Talk 
Presented by the MAAD Speakers Series
100 McCaul St., Room 230
Light reception at Onsite Gallery following talk

 

Shary Boyle is well-known for her bold, fantastical explorations of the figure. Highly crafted and deeply imaginative, her multi-disciplinary practice mines the social history of porcelain figurines, animist mythologies and folk art forms to create a symbolic, politically charged language uniquely her own. Boyle splits her time between her Toronto studio and collaborative projects with artists and musicians from the Arctic to Asia.

Boyle works across diverse media, including sculpture, painting, installation and performance, and is exhibited and collected internationally. Shary Boyle represented Canada with her project Music for Silence at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. In 2015 she performed at the Luminato Festival and the National Gallery of Canada and in 2016 exhibited in Ceramix : Ceramics and art from Rodin to Schutte, organized by the Bonnefantenmuseum in the Netherlands and touring to Cité de la Ceramique in Sevres, France. In 2017, Boyle curated and participated in the Esker Foundation-produced touring exhi bition Earthlings, while her sculptures were featured in South Korea’s Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale and the Suzanne Bierderberg Gallery exhibit Slipper in Amsterdam, NL. Shary Boyle’s first public art commission will be installed in Spring 2018 at the Gardiner Ceramic Museum in Toronto.

 

New work by Shary Boyle is on view at OCAD University’s Onsite Gallery (199 Richmond St. W.) from January 10 to April 15, 2018 as part of The Sunshine Eatersan original multi-sensory exhibition that highlights how artists and designers look to the land and its plants, flowers and trees as a means to imagine and conjure hope in the face of local and global crises.

Featuring work by: Shary Boyle, Nick Cave, Robert Holmes, Jim Holyoak, Brian Jungen, Jessica Karuhanga, Alexandra Kehayoglou, Nina Leo and Moez Surani, Tony Matelli, Alanis Obomsawin, Ebony G. Patterson and Winnie Truong. Curated by Lisa Deanne Smith.
