Abstract:

In 2019, the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago and the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University co-organized an exhibition of a newly commissioned body of work by the Canadian artist Liz Magor. The accompanying publication, 'Liz Magor: BLOWOUT', is the artist?s first US catalog in ten years, and it features thorough photographic documentation of the new work, commissioned texts by Sheila Heti and Mitch Speed, and a conversation between the artist and curators Solveig Øvstebø and Dan Byers.0For more than four decades, Liz Magor?s practice has quietly dramatized the relationships that develop among objects, and she describes this body of work as?a collection of tiny and intense narratives.? Each written contribution responds in its own way to Magor?s new installations, which feature altered stuffed toys, bits of paper, and rat skins?sculptural?agents??suspended in transparent Mylar box forms, and thirty pairs of secondhand shoes each displayed within its own box amidst elaborate embellishments.00Exhibition: The Renaissance Society, Chicago, USA (27.04-23.06.2019).
