Tuesday April 17th, 5 to 7 PM
The Young Gallery (adjacent to Frank Restaurant), Art Gallery of Ontario
Annie MacDonell¹s The Fortune Teller is part of a series of ongoing works
that investigate ideas of authenticity and repetition as they relate to the
production and consumption of contemporary art.
The central work in the exhibition was shot in the AGO conservation lab,
where MacDonell filmed a conservator as she restored a damaged resin hand
from an early-twentieth-century fortune-telling machine. The resulting film
work < and the restored sculpture < will be exhibited alongside each other.
MacDonell¹s exhibition will be on view at the Art Gallery of Ontario from
April 11 to June 3, 2012: http://www.ago.net/toronto-now
The show is produced in collaboration with the 2012 Images Festival:
