Koffler Centre of the Arts says
Join us for the official launch of the catalogue 'Howard Podeswa: A Brief History.' The publication features essays by John Bentley Mays and Mona Filip, as well as a conversation between artists Stephen Andrews and Howard Podeswa. The afternoon will feature an artist-led tour of the exhibition, followed by an in-depth conversation about contemporary painting with Nicole Collins, Howard Podeswa, Jinny Yu and John Armstrong.

As one of the oldest forms of artistic expression, painting originated from a human desire to capture the experience of the physical realm in visual form in order to make sense of the world. Throughout its history, painting has often been positioned as an instrument for understanding reality and contemplating the unknown. In a captivating discussion, artists Nicole Collins, Howard Podeswa, Jinny Yu and moderator John Armstrong consider the role of painting in engaging the fundamental questions of existence as well as the ways their own art practices reflect on traditions.

Presented in association with the Koffler Gallery exhibition Howard Podeswa: A Brief History, January 14 to March 27, 2016. The catalogue will be available for purchase for $15.
