Glimmers of the Radiant Real Opening Reception

Sunday, January 20, 2019 from 2-4 pm

Artist Daniel Griffin Hunt will be present to stage his durational performance Portal in the wooded area near the gallery leading up to the opening event, beginning Thursday, January 17. An opening reception for Glimmers of the Radiant Real will be held on Sunday, January 20, between 2 and 4pm at McIntosh Gallery, during which Hunt will stage the conclusion of his performance.

Through his performance of Portal, Daniel Griffin Hunt seeks to mediate a conversation between ecological awareness, commerce, and the politics in the middle. Portal calls attention to the discrepancy between labour, the global circulation of objects, and the conflicting economic and ecological implications of wrapping, shipping and moving cargo with thermo-polymer-plastic film.
