About

Please join us for a talk by artist, curator, educator, writer, organizer and activist, Luis Jacob. His practice challenges categorization, manifesting as photography, sculpture, performance, multiples, public intervention, video and installation. His pursuits are varied, but are all characterized by a concern for the philosophical and cultural possibilities of social interaction. Luis Jacob was born in Lima, Peru and lives and works in Toronto, Canada. His work is currently on show at The Martian Museum of Terrestrial Art, Barbican Art Gallery (2008). Recent exhibitions include Kunstverein, Hamburg (2008); Documenta 12 (2007); The Toronto International Film Festival (project in collaboration with Noam Gonnick) (2007) and La Biennale de Montréal (2007). He was curator in residence at the Blackwood Art Gallery, University of Toronto, where he organized the exhibition Golden Streams: Artists' Collaboration & Exchange in the 1970s (2002). He is also involved in the community-education collective, The Anarchist Free University. Luis Jacob studied at the University of Toronto majoring in Semiotics and Philosophy. ALL WELCOME.
