9 June 1981 - 27 June 1981
Opening Reception 9 June 1981 12pm
In collaboration with the Baxter Payton Crane Co., Toronto artist, Arthur Handy will examine several concerns which over the years have become increasingly important to him. These include the physical properties of materials (weight, density, etc.), the visual and psychological perception of the spectator in concrete rather than abstract terms of these phenomena, and art as a collaborative event.
The installation will consist of an assemblage of industrial construction materials including lead, steel and others selected, craned, trucked and arranged at Mercer Union with the assistance of Mr. Payton.
