  • Blank
  • Circle to Square
  • Organizing Principle

The exhibition is circulated by Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver.

Lexier, a Canadian artist based in New York, has developed his practice out of a reconsideration of the quasi-documentary strategies of early conceptual art, retooled to accommodate his concerns with time, identity and difference. Lexier has a sustained interest in the ephemeral products of conceptually based practices and over the past twenty years has amassed an extensive collection of such materials. Heís also collected hundreds of anonymous products that share similar graphic and aesthetic qualities. The individual objects in the collection include a large number of coins, printed materials such as stationery, score cards and books, artistsí books and multiples, packaging, tools, magic tricks, and fragments of perforated cardboard found in the street.
