International Artists Series: Taryn Simon In Toronto says
Disruption rules during this fall’s Canadian Art Encounters series, as Taryn Simon talks about her groundbreaking work and our changing relationship with information.

Taryn Simon‘s work results from rigorous research and investigation into the power and structure of secrecy and the precarious nature of survival. Combining photography, text and graphic design, her conceptual projects address the production and circulation of knowledge and the politics of representation. Simon’s images and texts reveal the invisible space between language and the visual world—a space in which multiple truths and fantasies are constructed, and where translation and disorientation continually occur. In her work, history—its classifications, its contents—seems the stuff of projection.

Simon was born in New York, where she currently lives and works. Her work was most recently shown in a solo exhibition at the Jeu de Paume in Paris. She is also a Guggenheim Fellow.

Tickets are $20 per lecture, with an option of upgrading to add a yearlong membership and Canadian Art subscription to your purchase.
