Deaf Culture Moments: Ian Wallace

Friday, November 5, 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 features Ian Wallace's role as a pioneer in photoconceptualism. Wallace is best known for his works that combine photography and painting. For over forty years, Wallace used his photography skills to document his creative process. His candid photographs often revel in Wallace's personal observations of his own surroundings. His work demonstrates that public spaces, both outdoors and indoors, are intimate in one way or another.

Closed captioning is available in this recording.
