ART SCHOOL HIGH
Art School High
This gorgeous exhibition catalogue was created to accompany the Gordon Smith Gallery's 2017 summer exhibition. It is designed by Judith Steedman and includes an insightful curatorial essay by Patrik Andersson. The 95-page book is fittingly reminiscent of a high school yearbook, and includes full colour illustrations of the works in the exhibition.
Our summer exhibition, Art School High, is currently showing at the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art until August 26th. Works from Karin Bubaš, John Collins, Rodney Graham, Scott Livingstone, Ken Lum, Kyla Mallet, Jean MacRae, Shannon Oksanen, Kathy Slade, Ron Terada, Neil Wedman and David Wisdom are featured in the catalogue.

The beautifully illustrated publication from the 2016 Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art Summer Exhibition – Readymades is now on sale. The 84-page book's design is by Judith Steedman and it is printed locally, at Hemlock Printers.
With essays by Patrik Andersson (on Gordon Smith and the readymade); Sven Lütticken (on 'the footprint' and the readymade); Bill Jeffries (on the exhibition, chess problems and Duchamp); and an interview between Catherine Millet and Marcelin Pleynet (published in English for the first time), all works in the exhibition are illustrated in full colour. Judith Penner created a poetic ode to the readymade for the book.
Readymades, the exhibition, was a hugely varied show that resulted from Gordon Smith's invitation extended to 11 artists: Arabella Campbell, Douglas Coupland, Stan Douglas, Gathie Falk, Geoffrey Farmer, Rodney Graham, Brian Jungen, Damian Moppett, Mina Totino, Ian Wallace and David Weir.
