In conjunction with Mark Lewis: Modern Time we invite you to join the
artist for a special exhibition tour.

Over the past fifteen years, Mark Lewis has attracted widespread
acclaim for his work in film. Working within a distinctly minimal set
of parameters, he often dispenses with sound and limits the duration
of his work to about four minutes, the length of a standard roll of
35mm film stock. Presented directly on the walls of the gallery space,
these works deliberately blur the boundaries between film, painting
and photography.

Mark Lewis was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1957 and lived in
Vancouver during the later 1980s and early 1990s. He currently lives
in London, England where he is a Principal Lecturer in Research at the
Central St. Martin's School of Art and Design. His work has been
widely exhibited in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. He is
co-founder and co-editor of Afterall Journal (London and Los Angeles)
and editor of the "One Work" series published by Afterall Books.

Free with Gallery admission.
