Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist program presents Daniel Barrow 2012-02-22 20:00:00
Description

Montreal-based artist Daniel Barrow uses obsolete technologies to present written,
pictorial, and cinematic narratives centering on the practices of drawing and collecting.
Since 1993, he has created and adapted comic book narratives to “manual” forms of
animation by projecting, layering, and manipulating drawings on an overhead projector.
Over the span of many years working as an image-maker and live performer, Barrow has
developed a personal language in which video alternately coalesces with drawings on an
overhead projector, with a live performer, as well as with gallery viewers. All of
Barrow’s work aims to collide popular imagery from the cultural and digital past with
emotional, usually melancholic, content. Barrow has performed and exhibited widely in
galleries and festivals throughout Canada and abroad. Selected performances and
exhibitions include; MOCA Massachusetts, La Casa Encendida (Madrid), Te Tuhi Arts
Centre (Aukland NZ), Bil Bol Bul (Bologna), Branchange Projects (London), Musee
D’Art Contemporain (Montreal), International House (Philadelphia), The British Film
Institute (London), The National Gallery of Canada, The Museum of Contemporary Art
(Los Angeles), The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), The Gene Siskel Film Center
(Chicago), and The Portland Institute of Contemporary Art’s 2009 Time-Based Art
Festival. Barrow is the 2007 winner of The Canada Council’s Victor Martyn Lynch-
Staunton award, the 2008 winner of the Images Festival’s Images Prize and the Sobey
Art Award 2010. Barrow is represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects, Toronto.
