Robert Fones: Signs | Forms | Narratives

May 16- July 21, 2018
University of Toronto Art Centre

Opening Reception
Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 6-8pm
University of Toronto Art Centre

Governor General Award-winning artist and writer Robert Fones is widely celebrated for his exquisitely rendered paintings and hybrid photographic sculptures that make us puzzle over the forms that surround us in our everyday, zeroing in on key paradoxes of visual perception. This major retrospective, the most extensive survey to date of the artist’s production, highlights influential artworks ranging from monumental letter forms, to lightboxes, to two-dimensional works that create the illusion of three dimensions.

Signs | Forms | Narratives was originated by Museum London with the support of the Museums Assistance Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage.

We gratefully acknowledge the operating support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Arts Council with additional project support from the Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto.
