“A is for…”


October 19 – November 24, 2012
“A is for…” Amin Rehman (Lahore, Pakistan & Toronto ON)
Solo show, mixed media installation with painting,

Presented in conjunction with BookFest Windsor 2012 – October 25-27, 2012

Opening reception: Friday October 19, 2012, 7:30 PM

Amin Rehman’s text-based installations explore neo-colonialism and the way in which language is used to further political and militaristic goals, while questioning narratives of individual identity and culture. Alternating between oil/ encaustic and digitally generated vinyl and neon signs, Rehman uses short, quixotic texts to evoke both current global realities and his own experience living in Pakistan and Canada.

Presented in conjunction with BookFest Windsor 2012. An exhibition catalogue, with critical essays by James Patten and Jamelie Hassan will be produced in collaboration with the University of Western Ontario’s McIntosh Gallery.
