Deaf Culture Moments: David Partridge and Louise Nevelson

Friday, October 1, 11 am
Facebook Live

Deaf communities and cultures can be overlooked in a noisy world that privileges hearing. As part of our commitment to supporting these communities and collaborating with them, we offer unique Deaf Culture Moments.

Explore the AGO Collection with Luna Quinlan, an Art Educator from the Deaf community, who encourages discovery by creating customized deaf experiences with art. As a recent graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design University, Luna expanded her interest in planning and preparing art community events. You can see her in the AGO digital series Deaf Culture Tours on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. The series, offered in American Sign Language with English subtitles, educates viewers about our most influential artists.

This video explores the shift of contemporary sculpture installations in the 1960s. This modern development nudges both artists and viewers alike to recognize that the established definition of third-dimensional art should not be limited to clay and wood. David Partridge and Louise Nevelson, featured in the video, contribute their contemporary sculpture installations to our shifting Canadian society. We will analyze the approaches Partridge and Nevelson bring to their assemblages.
