READ Books at the Charles H. Scott Gallery and the Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, would like to invite you to join us to celebrate the launch of Brian Jungen: Carapace.
The book and limited edition document, Carapace, one of Brian Jungen's largest works which was initially created in early 2009 for the FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France. Jungen then completely reconfigured Carapace for his solo exhibition at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, in the summer of 2010. In January 2011, for the Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, Jungen created a new and ultimately final configuration of Carapace. The book includes essays by Michael Turner and Candice Hopkins with a foreword by Catherine Crowston. Following the close of the Edmonton exhibition, the plastic recycling bins that were used to construct Carapace were re-formed into slipcovers for the special limited edition of the publication.
The artist will be in attendance.
