an incomplete map of contemporaneity
How do you represent the present moment in art? an incomplete map of contemporaneity was produced as an answer to this question. Responding to Alfred H Barr's diagrammatic representations of modern art which has periodized and affirmed the contributions of leading artists in the Western canon, this map suggests an alternative model for looking at the present through a collection of events and information gleaned from a general location, Northwestern Ontario, which is always in a state of flux with the passage of time. The location is overtly recognized as being both geographically determined and subjectively influenced by the parameters of my knowledge and understanding in that moment.
