The Contemporary Art Gallery and the Western Front present two new videos featuring dialogues between Eli Bornowsky and Elizabeth McIntosh. The videos were produced in conjunction with McIntosh’s solo show Violet’s Hair, at the CAG from November 19, 2010 – January 9, 2011 and Bornowsky’s exhibition Walking, Square, Cylinder, Plane, at the Western Front from November 26, 2010 – Jan 22, 2011. McIntosh and Bornowsky are both Vancouver-based painters whose work fits primarily into the realm of geometric abstraction. The discussions navigate the artists’ personal relationships to their work and their viewers, as well as their artistic processes. The interviews, which is set against the backdrop of the artists’ exhibitions, reveals new and unexpected layers of meaning within specific paintings.
