Jeremy Hof will speak in Art Now at 12:00 noon on March 16/12 in the Recital Hall

Friday, March 16, 2012 - 12:00am - 12:50pm

Jeremy  Hof indicates a formal interest in minimalist sculpture, but negotiates this oeuvre with his own interests that would be at odds with historical Minimalism. He continues to collapse the distinction between the handmade, high art and everyday objects, but creatively misconstrues the objectives of his predecessors. His are subversive rearticulations of Minimalism's aesthetic which subtly defy its anti symbolic stance.. He received his BFA at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2007. He is the 2008 winner of the RBC Painting award. Jeremy Hof lives and works in Vancouver.
