Judy Radul: World Rehearsal Court

World Rehearsal Court, a solo exhibition of new work by Vancouver artist Judy Radul is a large-scale media installation. This work draws on Radul’s research into the role of theatricality and new technologies in the court of law and it questions the distinctions between experience, testimony, reproduction, truth, and fiction that the law attempts to make distinct. World Rehearsal Court addresses the complexities of real-life experience that the court compresses into written record.

Glenn Ligon
Some Changes

Glenn Ligon: Some Changes surveys the breadth of the New York based artist’s oeuvre over the last seventeen years. Ligon is at the forefront of a generation of artists who came to prominence in the late eighties on the strength of conceptually based paintings and photo-text work that investigates the social, linguistic and political construction of race, gender and sexuality. Incorporating sources as diverse as James Baldwin’s texts, photographic scrapbooks, and Richard Pryor’s stand-up comic routines, Ligon’s art is a sustained meditation on issues of quotation, the presence of the past in the present, and the representation of the self in relation to culture and history.
