Art NOW presents Dieter Roelstraete and Zin Taylor
12 pm | March 15, 2019
University Recital Hall
Free admission, everyone welcome!

For this edition of Art NOW, Zin Taylor will explore his 2017 solo exhibition Creative Writing at the Westfälischer Kunstverein in Munster, Germany. Composed of many working parts that employed sculpture, sound, multiples, artist books, and performance, the exhibition addressed the act of composition by highlighting particular approaches to issues of appropriation, formation, site-specificity, and the ways in which thoughts, and their expressive languages, are migrated into narrative forms.

Zin Taylor (Calgary, 1978) lives and works in Paris, France.

Recent solo exhibitions include Cut Flowers, Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto; A Dove on the Beach: a piece of cloth to relax upon is a void to stage your thoughts, FRAC île-de-france/Le Plateau - Vitrine, Paris; Creative Writing, Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster; and Five Units of Haze, Oakville Galleries, Oakville. A monograph publication Lavender Glass was recently co-published by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge and Mousse Publishing, Milan with assistance from the RBC Foundation. Taylor recently participated as an invited fellow at the Fürstenberg Contemporary residency in Heiligenberg, Germany, with an exhibition to follow in April 2019. Currently, an installation of two large-scale wall drawings and sculpture is on view at Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland in the group exhibition Camouflage curated by Lorenzo Benedetti.
