Close Looking: Hey Hey Paula

Monday, May 17, 11am
Facebook Live

Join curator Renée van der Avoird for a close look at Toronto artist Sarindar Dhaliwal’s Hey Hey Paula (1998), recently acquired by the AGO. A study of conformity and arranged marriage, this large-scale installation features 600 portraits appropriated from a newspaper engagement section, and a rotary telephone playing the 1960s ballad, "Hey Hey Paula", about falling in love. In this major immersive work, Dhaliwal deftly comments on female subjectivity and myths of romance that conform to dominant narratives.
