The Bells is the first publication in the SFU Galleries Critical Reader Series. A discursive forum, the series encourages critical writing and projects that run parallel to programming at SFU Galleries.
Focusing on the unfolding ideas raised in Damian Moppett’s exhibition The Bells (SFU Gallery, January 18 - April 19, 2014), this publication not only contextualizes Moppett’s layered practice, but also engages with the historical and ongoing space of the studio and visual materiality. New texts by poet Lisa Robertson, writer Sharon Kahanoff and Damian Moppett, and a reprinted 1974 text by artist Hollis Frampton, collectively consider Moppett’s widely referential practice through a myriad of lenses: art historical, material and theoretical. Edited and introduced by Melanie O'Brian.
