Habitat Conversations: Annie MacDonell

Gallery TPW
170 St Helens Ave

In conjunction with Luis Jacob’s exhibition Habitat, Gallery TPW commissioned three short texts in response to the artist’s explorations of place-making, the visual regimes of the city, and the force of photographs.

This is the second of three in a series of Saturday-afternoon discussions based on these commissioned texts. Each session will begin with time to read together, followed by conversation with guest facilitators.

Text by Annie MacDonell, facilitated by MacDonell and Luis Jacob

Titled “Horizontal Scroll,” Annie MacDonell’s text queries the resonance and functions of images when they are freed from accompanying text or captioned by other images.

Annie MacDonell is a Toronto-based visual artist. Sometimes she finds it easier to understand the world when she’s looking at pictures of it.
