Practice: Artist, Photographer, and Instructor
Date of Lecture: 2011-03-10
The Ryerson University’s Image Arts Student Lecture Series proudly presents a special lecture with Montreal-based, internationally-acclaimed artist Evergon! Please join us for a unique opportunity to hear from this renowned artist as he discusses his work and experiences spanning the past four decades!
Concerned with technology, past and present, Evergon’s early photographs explored non-silver processes and electrostatic works. These were followed by instant imaging photographs that culminated with 1 meter x 2 meters colour Polaroid prints. In the 1990’s, there were primarily two bodies of work from press cameras. The first was a fabricated document of ‘Ramboys: a Bookless Novel’ finalized as large silver gelatin prints. The other was documented fiction/action within ‘Manscapes’ – male-to-male cruising grounds completed in various modes of digital imaging. In the last five years, Evergon’s works include larger-than-life nudes of his Mother, ‘Margaret & I’ and a selection of images gleaned from his lifetime trove of memorabilia accompanied with self-portraits, ‘Chez Moi: Domestic Content’.
