David Askevold: Once Upon a Time in the East
07 Oct 2011 - 08 Jan 2012
David Askevold (1940-2008) is recognized as an important contributor to the development and pedagogy of conceptual art, and his work has been included in many of the genre’s seminal exhibitions and texts. This full-career retrospective exhibition considers the four strains of Askevold’s exploratory journey – sculpture/installation, film and video, photo-text works, and digital images and includes key pieces from each stage of his career.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia with the support of the Museums Assistance Program (MAP), Department of Canadian Heritage.
