Check out these video clips of artist IAIN BAXTER& talking about some of the art that you will see when you visit IAIN BAXTER&: Works 1958 – 2011 at the Art Gallery of Ontario. For 50 years BAXTER& has been radically redefining the role of the artist, integrating photography, installation, sculpture, painting, drawing and performative aspects into his work. This exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), IAIN BAXTER&: Works 1958–2011, invites visitors to become collaborators, by engaging with the artist and his work.
In 2005 BAXTER& legally added an “&” to his name, reflecting his collaborative approach to art and his fundamental belief that art requires a strong connection with the viewer. “Life,” says BAXTER&, “seems to be about ands. After we leave this life and this planet, only an & remains.”
Ecology and the environment are key themes in this exhibition.
