In conjunction with Canzine, join Jason Dickson for a talk on Canadian indie xerox, artistamp, and serigraphy pioneer Michael Bidner. Bidner worked on the bleeding edge of emergent media from the 1970s until his death from AIDS in 1989. Dickson will draw on material from Michael Bidner’s personal archives, held in the AGO Library’s special collections, to discuss the work and legacy of the artist.More information available through the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Jason Dickson is the curator of Michael Bidner: Raw and exhibition presented at McIntosh Gallery in early 2018. The exhibition will tour to Saint Mary's University Art Gallery in 2020. The Michael Bidner: Raw exhibition catalogue is available via Brown & Dickson Bookstore.
