Art NOW presents Jonathan Middleton
Curating and Publishing as a so-called art practice
Noon, November 8, 2019
University Recital Hall
Free admission, everyone welcome!
Middleton will speak on his 20+ year curatorial practice, reflecting on projects at the Western Front, Or Gallery, Bodger's & Kludger's Cooperative Art Parlour, as well as his more recent publishing endeavours with Projectile, Fillip, and Information Office. He’ll also touch on his recent activities at Art Metropole, outlining plans that build in the organization’s 45 year history as a centre for a broad range of publishing activities and dissemination.
