BOOK LAUNCH – Brendan Fernandes: Still Move, Wed 21 June 6pm Art Bar +Projects

Please join us at 6pm on Wed 21 June at Art Bar +Projects (1873 Granville Street) for the launch of Still Move: Brendan Fernandes, edited by Crystal Mowry and published by Black Dog Publishing London UK.

Featuring a discussion between Brendan Fernandes, Robin Metcalfe, Director/Curator of Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery, and artist Ryan Josey.

Still Move: Brendan Fernandes is the first monograph to focus on Fernandes’ use of language and dance as a means to explore power, endurance and resistance.

For the last five years, New York and Toronto based artist Brendan Fernandes has explored how stillness and static movement can be powerful tools of resistance. Informed by his training in ballet and modern dance, Fernandes’ practice routinely explores the role of the body within social and political spaces, questioning and breaking down the notion of hegemony.

The monograph focuses on Fernandes’ performances and installations since 2011 and features texts by Hendrik Folkerts, curator of documenta 14 and Jess Wilcox, Director of Exhibitions at Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island, New York, and contributions from Christina Cuthbertson, Shaun Dacey, Anik Glaude, Ryan Josey, Robin Metcalfe, Crystal Mowry, and Stuart Reid.

Still Move: Brendan Fernandes is published by Black Dog Publishing London UK in partnership with: Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery; Rodman Hall Art Centre | Brock University; Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery; Southern Alberta Art Gallery and Varley Art Gallery of Markham.
