Authors on Art: Lynn Crosbie

Join us for our Authors on Art series with acclaimed writer Lynn Crosbie, held alongside our winter exhibition, The Mime, the Model and the Dupe, a survey of the work of Montreal-based artist Valérie Blass. A poet, novelist and cultural critic, Crosbie will deliver a talk that explores the protean, idiosyncratic sculptures of Blass’ recent history.

Biography
Lynn Crosbie is a Ph.D and writer, whose latest novel is Chicken (2018). Previous books include the novels Life Is About Losing Everything (2012) and the Trillium Book Award finalist Where Did You Sleep Last Night? (2015), as well as volumes of poetry and prose such as Queen Rat (1998), Dorothy L’Amour (1999) and Liar (2006). For her work as a journalist, she has won a number of National Magazine Awards. She has also worked at OCAD and the AGO, and lectured at various galleries. A former art student, she now devotes her time to photographing Toronto’s west end neighbourhood of Parkdale, and to writing Young Adult novels that are likely too louche for young adults.

The talk will begin at 7:00 pm. Admission is free; pre-registration required.
