The CAG and the Western Front present a new video featuring a dialogue between Eli Bornowsky and Elizabeth McIntosh. The video was produced in conjunction with McIntosh’s solo show Violet’s Hair, at the CAG from November 19, 2010 – January 9, 2011. McIntosh and Bornowsky are both Vancouver-based painters whose work fits primarily into the realm of geometric abstraction. The discussion navigates McIntosh’s personal relationship to her work and her viewers, as well as her artistic process. The interview, which is set against the backdrop of a part of McIntosh’s exhibit, reveals new and unexpected layers of meaning within specific paintings.
This is the first of two videos. Released soon will be Elizabeth McIntosh Interviews Eli Bornowsky produced in conjunction with Bornowsky’s exhibition WALKING, SQUARE, CYLINDER, PLANE at the Western Front from November 26 – January 22, 2011.
