For this week’s AGH Magazine article, enjoy this recorded conversation between AGH Director of Programs and Education Tor Lukasik-Foss and current AGH exhibition artist Nora Hutchinson.
This conversation occurred September 24, 2020 for a live audience in the AGH Joey & Toby Tanenbaum Pavilion, in alignment with the safety protocols and guidelines as set by the Government of Ontario at the time of filming.
Reflecting on the Hamilton-based artist’s retrospective exhibition, Nora Hutchinson: Rebel Opera, this talk dives deep into Hutchinson’s approach to art-making, song-writing, collaboration, and the ways her process has evolved over the last four decades. Rebel Opera closes January 3, 2021.
Nora Hutchinson (Hamilton, Canadian b. 1951) occupies a key position in the evolution of video art and performance installation, contributing works while these artistic genres were very much in their infancy. The retrospective exhibition, Nora Hutchinson: Rebel Opera covers four decades of work, and features her film and video practice. Rooted in feminism and performativity, her evocative moving image works build on her theatrical and musical sensibilities.
Don’t miss Nora Hutchinson: Rebel Opera while it’s still up on our Gallery walls! The exhibition closes January 3, along with two fellow contemporary Canadian artist exhibitions, Early Snow: Michael Snow 1947-1962 and The Contemporaries.
