Sean Foley

Friday, August 23, 6:00 p.m.
Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery

Contemporary artist Sean Foley explores the monstrous and grotesque in his painting practice. He discusses key works in Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders through a prism of wonder. Using “nonsense” as a point of departure, Foley encourages visitors to encounter monsters in a way that sparks their own imaginative inquiries and curiosity.
