In his multidisciplinary practice, Toronto artist Derek Sullivan employs drawing, sculpture, bookworks and installation to engage with the legacies of modernist art and design. His major solo exhibition at the MacLaren, installed in two galleries, explores what Sullivan describes as “the poetics of distribution,” bringing together sculptural and drawn works that examine how books are printed, assembled and disseminated. This exhibition is accompanied by a critical text by Los Angeles-based artist and writer Jen Hutton.

Derek Sullivan is a graduate from York University (BFA, 1998) and the University of Guelph (MFA, 2002). His recent solo exhibitions include those at Galerie Antoine Ertaskarin, Montreal; Susan Hobbs, Toronto; Dunlop Gallery, Regina; Oakville Galleries; Modern Fuel, Kingston; and Galerie Emmanuel Hervé, Paris. His work is held in the collections of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Kingston; Art Gallery of York University, Toronto; the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Getty Museum Archives and Library, Los Angeles; and the Bibliothèque Kandinsky, Centre Pompidou, Paris, among others.
