Annie MacDonell's month-long self-directed residency at the Toronto Reference Library, Pictures Become Objects, Objects Become Events, culminates in a lecture-performance produced in collaboration with French artist Maïder Fortuné. 

The Bird and The Cup mines the library’s Picture Collection to illustrate a shape-shifting narrative winding through two separate spaces: the Toronto Reference Library and Robarts Research Library. These two iconic buildings, and the Picture Collection itself, become a pretext for MacDonell and Fortuné to explore the relationship between image and text, illustration and description, as well as the possibilities and limitations of architecture in public life.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PERFORMANCE START TIME HAS CHANGED.

Join us at 3PM on Saturday May 31st at the Toronto Reference Library’s Hinton Learning Theatre, on the third floor.
