Watch Martha Langford on Michael Snow
In this ACI talk, Langford makes a passionate case for the work of the legendary Toronto artist
For the second installment of our ongoing lecture series, we have an engaging presentation from the director of the Jarislowsky Institute for the Studies in Canadian Art, Professor Martha Langford, on Toronto artist Michael Snow. It’s a comprehensive look at a man whose work intersects with virtually every medium and speaks to the sentiments of contemporary Canada. We were further honoured to have Snow in attendance. Please enjoy the video here and download the ACI’s Michael Snow: Life and Work by Langford here.
