What Do We Think About Andy?

Thursday, July 29, 3 pm

If you could be any Warhol superstar, who would you be? Has anyone ever called your work Warlohian, and if so, did you consider it a compliment? Inspired by the campy and candid style of Interview Magazine, don't miss Cason Sharpe in discussion with artist Kiera Boult, writer Chelsea Rozansky, and artist-run-centre Hearth, as they reconcile their practices with Warhol's daunting legacy.

Cason Sharpe is a writer currently based in Toronto. His fiction and criticism have appeared in Canadian Art, C Magazine, The Capilano Review, Public Parking, Brick, PRISM International, and the Hart House Review, among others. His first collection of stories, Our Lady of Perpetual Realness, was published by Metatron Press in 2017.

Kiera Boult is an interdisciplinary artist and administrator with a BFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice from OCAD University. Boult’s practice is playfully reliant on camp, comedy, and approachability. By using the trope of the therapy booth, she posits the artist as facilitator, opening conversations surrounding race politics, intersectional feminism and relational aesthetics, all the while skeptically addressing issues that surround the role and/or identity of the artist and the institution.

Chelsea Rozansky is a writer from Toronto. She is currently the Writer in Resident at C Magazine, where she is underway on an archival research project questioning notability, collective authorship and the labour rendered anonymous in the production of artistic discourse. Rozansky was awarded Canadian Art's Editorial Residency in 2020.

Founded in 2019 as an artist-run space, Hearth seeks to provide a site to present projects within a context that values collaboration, experimentation, and community. As a structural element in the makeup of a house, and a tool providing warmth, light, and food; a hearth gathers us towards itself, and towards each other.

Sameen Mahboubi was born on the territories of the Anishinabewaki, the Attiwonderonk and the Haudenosaunee. Sameen currently resides on the land of the Anishinabewaki, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat. Sameen is one of four co-founders and directors of Hearth, a DIY space at the intersection of Bathurst and Ulster in Tkaronto and currently sits on the Art Metropole board of directors. Mahboubi is interested in ecology, geography and urbanism and the relationships we all share with public space. 

Benjamin de Boer (b. 1995) is a coefficient tacked to the functional trajectory of the collective question. Forever purpled by our ludic conviviality, total believer in the Beautiful Idea. Now taunts the asymptote shape of one’s own pulsion.

Rowan Lynch sometimes makes art, sometimes does design work, sometimes organizes exhibitions and projects. They are interested in people, light, and the possibility of a subsistence that is more than bearable
