On Friday, May 22 Sook-Yin Lee of the CBC interviewed Aganetha Dyck on Definately Not The Opera.  Listen to the 8 minute podcast HERE.


Temple Contemporary at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia is working on a new collaboration with Aganetha Dyck.

For the next 6 months Aganetha Dyck will be collaborating virtually with a professional beekeeper on seven new porcelain figurines.  A live hive will be set up inside the gallery at Temple Contemporary and a beekeeper will monitor, feed and maintain the hive and the in-progress artworks inside.   The beekeeeper will act as Aganetha's "assistant" and will set up a camera so Aganetha can observe 24/7 - allowing her to inform the beekeeper where to place starter comb on the figurine, where to carve out, where to add wax, and to inform him when the work is complete.

Visitors to the gallery can watch live as the bees work on the figurines that Aganetha has carefully selected,....


Jason McLean's "Lettuce Legs" exhibition opens at Cinders Hausclub, 700 Lorimer Street, 2nd Floor, Brooklyn, NY on Saturday May 23 from 7-10pm

Jason Mclean is a Canadian artist currently living in Brooklyn. We first met Jason nearly a decade
ago when we had begun our love affair with the loose-knit scene of artists popping up in places
such as Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. We found a like-minded spirit in their work that was
raw, fun, collaborative, and not afraid to be humorous either. Jason Mclean along with the Royal
Art Lodge, Marc Bell, Mark Delong, and Amy Lockhart were at the forefront of
this wave of serious doodlers and so we are proud to finally present the work of Jason Mclean at
the Cinders Hausclub all this month!

Looking at the prolific body of Jasonâ...

Greg Curnoe "Funny Bike", Mixed Media Sculpture, December 1985 - May 20, 1986
37 x 66 1/2 x 14 in. Lot #014, Estimate: $75,000 - $95,000 CAD


Heffel Fine Art Auction House is auctioning off a rare Greg Curnoe sculpture on May 27. As Mark Cheetham states in the auction catalogue essay: "As its title suggests, Funny Bicycle stands out even in Curnoe’s work. Akin to all his art but more startlingly so, this machine is a hybrid. The frame is that of a "real" bike, but the wheels are wooden circles that function more as meditations on the colour wheel than as conveyances.... To call this a sculpture seems inadequate: the work seems almost weightless, a celebration of movement and colour that one could "ride" in the fullest sense." The Estate of Greg Curnoe is represented by the Michael Gibson Gallery.
