McIntosh Gallery & Art Now! Present: Brandon Vickerd

Thursday, September 21, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Co-presented by McIntosh Gallery and the Department of Visual Arts, Western University.
Registration required

Brandon Vickerd is a Hamilton-based artist and Professor of Sculpture at York University, where he also serves as Chair of the Department of Visual Arts and Art History. He received his BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (1999) and his MFA from the University of Victoria (2001).

Purposely diverse, his studio work straddles the line between high and low culture, acting as a catalyst for critical thought and addressing the failed promise of a modernist future predicated on boundless scientific advancement. Whether through craftsmanship, the creation of spectacle, or humor, the goal of his work is to provoke the viewer into questioning the dominate myth of progress ingrained in Western world views.

Vickerd has received numerous awards and grants from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Toronto Arts Council, and the Ontario Arts Council.

This public lecture is free and open to the public, all are welcome to attend, although registration is required. Location information will be shared with registered attendees via email.
