Artist talk with William Robinson: Wed., Feb. 6/5 p.m.
MacMechan Auditorium, Killam Library, 6225 University Avenue
All are welcome.
William Robinson, the recently named artist-in-residence at the Killam Memorial Library, is a Halifax-based interdisciplinary artist and graduate of NSCAD (2004). He employs video, performance, sculpture, drawing and other media to investigate the culture of sound and social architecture. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, having shown in New York, Bergen and Berlin, as well as in Toronto at Nuit Blanche and in Halifax at Nocturne. His practice is conceptually based, often rooted in intimate encounters and immediate experiences.
William’s residency at the Killam Library is presented in partnership with the Dalhousie Art Gallery and runs from January 28-March 1, 2013. The residency is funded through HRM’s residency initiative, which benefits artists by providing them with resources including space, time, critical discourse and financial support to deepen their practices, create works, investigate ideas and experiment with materials.
Please join us next Wednesday to learn more about William’s work and his residency in the Killam Library. More information is also available here.
