Join New York based artist and gallery director Martha Wilson for a live virtual Zoom talk presented in conjunction with Griffin’s upcoming exhibition Now Bulletin: Artworks, Letters and Printed Matter from the Garry Neill Kennedy Collection 1968 - 2019. Wilson will talk about her experiences as a young artist in Halifax in the 1970’s where she become involved with the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design’s revolutionary arts community, spearheaded by college president Garry Neill Kennedy, who was, at the time, in the midst of transforming the institution into a forerunner of art education. From there, Wilson will survey her post-Halifax years in New York City, beginning with the founding and evolution of Franklin Furnace and ending with her current work and artistic practice.
