This Thursday, Dr. Carl Peters will be reading from his book “Textual Vishyuns: Image and text in the work of Bill Bissett,” at the Reach Gallery and Museum.
Bissett’s innovative artwork has been internationally recognized and was the subject of an exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1984. The written critique of the artist is the first scholarly study of the Canadian painter and poet. The book focuses on the technique of the discontinuous line, in addition to providing context of the history, theory and practice of art.
Peters teaches poetics and avant-garde art at the University of the Fraser Valley.
The reading takes place Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at The Reach, at 32388 Veterans Way. For more information call 604-864-8087 ext. 122, or email email@example.com.
