Christopher Knowles: In a Word

February 8, 2018 | 6:30 pm

Join Musiqa for free informal LOFT concert presented in conjunction with the CAMH’s current exhibit, “Christopher Knowles: In a Word.”

Christopher Knowles is regarded as a poet and painter, yet his output is broader than this suggests. The work records and reorders the everyday materials around us using incantatory rhythms and repetition. Typings of language permutations, reimagined song lyrics, interlocking blocks of raw color commonly depict family and close friends. Sculptures are precise and direct in construction: polka-dotted cones, brilliantly hued paper cutouts, Lego structures, and accumulations of wind-up alarm clocks. This exhibition is co-organized by Anthony Elms, Chief Curator of the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania, and Guest Curator Hilton Als, writer and chief theater critic for The New Yorker. Its presentation at CAMH is facilitated by Curator Dean Daderko.

Free and open to the public
