November 15 – December 30, 2007
Born in Oakville, Ontario, Shelagh Keeley has spent more than two decades living and producing artwork in places such as New York, Paris and New Delhi, India. Recently re-located to Toronto, the exhibition, An Encyclopaedia of Memory and Slowness is intended to affectionately mark Keeley’s return to her homeland. This project includes three bodies of drawings: her most recent series of black drawings, An Encyclopaedia of Memory and Slowness (2007), selections from the Erotic Notebook, (2003 – 2005), and Flesh of the Body, (1990), a remarkable, 30-ft.-long drawing across 7 steel panels, originally commissioned by The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, acquired by the Art Gallery of North York in 1994 and, by no small coincidence, is now included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art.
