AboutCanadian photoconceptualist Ian Wallace speaks with art critic John Roberts about his role in contemporary art over the past 50 years to celebrate the release of a new monograph on his work, Ian Wallace: At the Intersection of Painting and Photography.
Ian Wallace has played an important role in contemporary art over the past 50 years, from his early experiments with minimalism to his production of serial photographic âtableaux' and his subsequent juxtapositions of photography with monochrome painting. A key figure in photoconceptualism alongside Jeff Wall, Rodney Graham and Stan Douglas, Wallace has consistently demonstrated conceptual rigour and aesthetic innovation. Through both his practice and position as social historian, critic and educator, Wallace's influence extends to film and literature, institutional critique, architecture, urban development, gender relations, environmentalism and civil disobedience.
John Roberts is Professor of Art and Aesthetics at the University of Wolverhampton and an internationally distinguished writer and curator. He has authored numerous works of critical theory including The Intangibilities of Form, Philosophizing the Everyday and The Necessity of Errors.
