ArtTalk with Luis Jacob

Toronto-based artist Luis Jacob

Confederation Centre Art Gallery is supporting an artist-in-residence for the month of June with Annandale Artist Residency. Meet the artist, Luis Jacob, at this month’s ArtTalk on June 22 at 7 pm. 

Luis Jacob is a Peruvian-born, Toronto-based artist whose work destabilizes viewing conventions and invites collisions of meaning. Since his participation in documenta12 in 2007, he has achieved an international reputation, with exhibitions at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Austria; Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, Germany; and the Toronto Biennial of Art (all 2019); La Biennale de Montréal (2016); Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York (2015); Taipei Biennial (2012); Generali Foundation, Vienna (2011); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010); Hamburg Kunstverein (2008), and the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (2008).

“Luis is a longstanding collaborator with Confederation Centre Art Gallery. His work has shown here in two exhibitions, including Oh, Canada in 2014, and he co-curated the exhibition Funkaesthetics in 2009,” says Gallery curator Pan Wendt. “He’s a thoughtful and accessible artist and thinker, and a fantastic speaker. We’re so glad to be able to welcome him back to PEI this summer.” 

At the ArtTalk on June 22, Luis will give a presentation about his work and be available for questions and conservations. This event is free and open to the public.
