Dear CAG Blog readers,

Hello.

My name is Lara Szabo Greisman and I have the pleasure of joining the CAG this summer to help coordinate the catalogue for the annual Art Auction taking place November 5th at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.
Currently, I am studying at Stockholm University’s International Master’s Program in Curating Art with Management and Law. (Yes, that’s actually the title. We call it “the curating program” or, between ourselves we sometimes call it “school”). Before that I was at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario during which I was a primary collective member of The Artel Arts Accommodation and Venue (another long title) which is an artist-run center whose program includes exhibitions, screenings, workshops, magazine launches and concerts. During my time in Kingston, I was a member of the artist collective Works Cited which put together inter and multi-media performances on subjects such as the tragedy of linear time, the frustration of unscrambling an egg and the colour blue.
As part of my summer contract at the CAG, I am researching local and international artists and their works as well as writing the catalogue texts that will (hopefully) give you a lovely intro into the impressive range of pieces included in the auction this year. So far I have been compiling information on a wide variety of interesting works by artists such as Pablo Bronstein, Hadley + Maxwell, Peter Gazendam, Elizabeth McIntosh and Marcel Dzama, to name just a few.
While I am here, I will also be helping with exhibitions. Speaking of which…have you seen the Shary Boyle show, Flesh and Blood yet? The light and sculpture installation Virus is fascinating as it changes before your eyes from a pure white, mythological type figure to an animated creature in a fantastical neon landscape. Other highlights will be working with Ron Tran’s piece A Way to Go, which leads you on a journey through the alleys, pointing out gems and gestures in places you would never look.
