Gene pool: Shary Boyle's Canadian Artist opens at BMO Project Room
I was one of the lucky invited few to the opening of Shary Boyle's new installation "Canadian Artist" at the Bank of Montreal's Project Room last night. I'll have more thoughts on the piece itself a little later on -- suffice to say for now that it's infused with Boyle's unflagging rigour for craft and her particular, unique brilliance for social narrative, cross-fertilized with her gift for the fantastical -- but first, I wanted to steer you over to the project's web site. Boyle said the site is not so much a supplement to the work itself, but a necessary companion piece, and as you start sifting the depth of research Boyle committed to for the work, you'll see why.
Then, once you've done a thorough perusing, give BMO a call at (416) 643-2609, or drop them an email at email@example.com and have a look (viewings are by appointment only). I'll be back again. More than once.
