Archiving the Archivist: Andrea Fawcett Solo Retrospective

Presented by Greenbelt Arts

Public Opening: July 10th 1PM - 6PM 
29 McCaul St at Beaver Hall Artists' Co-op
Public viewing hours will be offered from 1-5 PM on Saturday and 1-5 PM on Tuesday

Andrea Fawcett was a Canadian artist and historian whose collection of large pieces and personal archives have been mined by curator Lauren Hunter to bring you this retrospective. Andrea travelled throughout Europe chasing the illusive brasses which fascinated her, and decoded their elaborate symbology as well as preserving them through rubbings. Her notes are collaged in an exploration of the archiving process, and the personal nexus of Andrea and her identity as a woman and an archivist is alluded to, but never made explicit. Additionally, large pieces created at disparate occasions during Andrea's lifetime are displayed together here, for the first time.
