Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Legge, Associate Professor of Art, University of Toronto

Kathy Venter’s life-size sculptures of women take their place in a history of sculpture, but they have peculiar qualities of their own. Dr. Legge explores how Venter creates figures who seem at once ancient and fully in the present, both a comfortable presence and an enigmatic interruption of our experience of the world.
