Gordon Lebredt: Nonworks 1975–2008

ccca
Dry Run 1977, axonometric, graphite on paper, 11 x 8 inches

The work of Canadian artist, Gordon Lebredt, is well known for its rigorous conceptualism and ambitious materiality. For more than 30 years Lebredt has been proposing ambitious, unwieldy, tangential, extreme, arid, brilliant architectural installations. These proposals take the form of beautiful drawings in pencil and ink, stencils in black spray paint, digital renderings, and maquettes. Nonworks 1975-2008, a book project initiated by a group of artists, collects approximately 100 of Lebredt’s proposals that have not yet been realized.

Nonworks 1975–2008 will be co-published in the fall of 2010 by the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art and Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art and distributed by Art Metropole. The book is being financed primarily through charitable donations and we need your help. Pre-orders will also help make it a reality.

For more information go to www.ccca.ca/nonworks or contact Bill Kirby, Director, Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art at 416.533.4810 or kirby@ccca.ca.
