Little Histories of Modern Art brings together eight contemporary artists whose photographic and videographic works critically and affectionately reconsider the practices and ideologies of Modern Art.
The works of these eight artists playfully revisit the histories of Modern Art, evoking its undiminished power on the Postmodern imagination.
Laurel Woodcock received a BFA from Concordia University and an MFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. With a concern for the elastic nature of language, she elaborates in her work on the collaborative and performative spirit of conceptual practice. Her work has been exhibited internationally at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto, Musée de Louviers in Paris, the Ottawa Art Gallery, Humberside University Gallery in London, England, and ISEA 97 in Chicago. Recent video screenings include 25hrs (Barcelona), Images Festival in Toronto, Recent Canadian Video in Cairo, and Canadian Fall in Glasgow. She lives in Toronto and is an associate professor at the University of Guelph, Ontario.
