Annie Martin will lecure in Art Now

Wednesday, February 28, 2007 - 5:00am - 6:00am

In this Art Now presentation, Annie Martin will discuss her audio installations and other recent projects, with a particular focus on the 2006 collaborative residential installation project Résider II, and its 1995 precedent, Résider. For these projects, Annie worked with Montreal artists Karilee Fuglem, Carmen Ruschiensky and Andrea Szilasi to create works in situ in an apartment the artists used as both studio and gallery. Separated by 11 years, these two collaborations highlight some of the motivations artists have had for creating work in dwelling spaces. For the past 12 years, Annie Martin has explored the psychological and phenomenological dimensions of audio in her installations and other projects. Annie recently moved from Montreal, Quebec to Lethbridge, where she teaches in the Art Department. Her work will be represented in the 2007 Alberta Biennial, and in an exhibition at the Trianon Gallery in Lethbridge in fall 2007. Her installation "relaxation: songs for city dwellers" is currently on view in Found at the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery. On February 2nd, Annie will conduct a listening walk, starting at 4 pm at the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery. (All are welcome- please come with walking shoes and coat. The walk will last about one hour.)
