Shary Boyle: Outside the Palace of Me Public Celebration

Wed March 16, 2022 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free admission. Cash bar. No registration required.

Join internationally renowned Canadian multidisciplinary artist Shary Boyle for our public celebration of her new touring exhibition and accompanying publication, Outside the Palace of Me.

With this exhibition, Shary Boyle breaks new ground by synthesizing her distinctive visual language across ceramic sculpture, painting and life-size animatronics in a theatrical set that questions how we see ourselves and each other.

The publication will be available for purchase at the event.


A multi-sensory installation, Shary Boyle: Outside the PalaceĀ of Me explores how we see ourselves and each other through drawings, ceramic sculpture, life-sized automatons, two-way mirrors, coin-operated sculpture, and an interactive score.

Reimagining the museum as a collective performance space, Canadian visual artist and performer Shary Boyle mines histories of craft and obsolete technologies to connect our current realities to legacies of the past. Reversing the frame on her uncanny characters and their destabilized audience, she urges viewers to think critically about how we create both ourselves and the world we inhabit. Learn more
