Samuel Roy-Bois: Not a new world, just an old trick is a catalogue co-published by SFU Galleries, Carleton University Art Gallery and Oakville Galleries and includes essays by Adrian Blackwell and Kathleen Ritter that consider ideas and topics related to Roy-Bois' 2013 work of the same name. Roy-Bois' travelling exhibition consisted of a large-scale model for an imaginary building that connotes an idea of the art gallery or museum while simultaneously acting as climbable furniture. Both an edifice and sculpture, Not a new world, just an old trick, showcased works from each institutions collection in addition to Roy-Bois own ink drawings that illustrate architectural forms, proposals and impossibilities.
