Abstract Practices I


Abstract Practices I
, a Spring 1991 exhibition guest curated by James D. Campbell, was a survey of contemporary abstraction, with an emphasis on long-standing practice. The attention was on four artists (Jean-Marie Delavalle, Ric Evans, Jean Poldaas, and Claude Tousignant) who all work within the so-called “constructive” (as opposed to “geometric”) mode of abstract painting. Two of these artists come from French-speaking Canada, and two from English-speaking Canada, but all four emerge within a shared horizon in which abstraction is a metaphor for human freedom as well as a vital forum for the pursuit of meaning.

This 24-page softcover exhibition catalogue features full colour images of the artists’ works, as well as an essay by Curator James D. Campbell.
