Zalucky Contemporary, Tegan Moore in conversation with Andy Patton Saturday February 3rd 1PM


…an artist talk with Tegan Moore who will discuss her current exhibition Variations with fellow artist and one-time mentor Andy Patton. (The exhibition is on until February 10th.)

Tegan Moore (b.1985, Toronto, Canada) lives in London, Ontario where she has a practice in sculpture, installation, and video. Her work is informed by structures and systems that work invisibly in the built environment. Concerns with material properties, consumption, climate, economy, and fragility drive her approach to research and production. She completed a BFA at Emily Carr University in 2008, and an MFA at Western University in 2014. Recent exhibitions include The Windsor-Essex Triennial of Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Windsor (2017) Homestead at Carl Louie, London (2017), Subtraction Inventories at CSA Space, Vancouver (2016), and Semiopaque at G Gallery, Toronto (2016). Moore has participated in international residencies at Mustarinda in Hyrynsalmi, Finland, and Flaggfabrikken (now Aldea), in Bergen, Norway. She is an upcoming Researcher in Residence at Tokyo Arts and Space, a division of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.

Andy Patton (b. 1952, Canada) is an artist, critic and scholar. Educated in Winnipeg and London (Ontario) universities, he studied under the Irish writer John Moriarty and Canadian poet George Amabile. Patton’s first book, Poems and Quotations, was published in 1975, and he has been exhibiting since 1980. He represented Canada in the Fifth Biennale of Sydney and in Artists Space’s International Series. He is represented by BirchContemporary in Toronto. In 1993 he began teaching studio art and theory; he is presently an instructor at OCAD University and has taught in its Florence program. Patton published his second book, Introduction to the Introduction to WangWei, written with the Canadian poets Roo Borson and Kim Maltman under the collective name Pain Not Bread, in 2000. His studies in Northern Song calligraphy and aesthetics earned him a PhD from the University of Western Ontario in 2013, for which he was awarded the Governor General’s Gold Medal for Academic Excellence. A collection of his critical writings is forthcoming.
