For Example (Hirsch, MacCallum, Macdonald) is the fourth and final instalment in a series curated by Micah Lexier specially for the MSVU Art Gallery mezzanine space. In keeping with the idea of the sample, each installation includes works by three artists in three separate, identical vitrines, highlighting the potential for individuality within a context of uniformity.
Seriality and sequence characterize the selected works by Antonia Hirsch (Vancouver), Euan Macdonald (Los Angeles), and Peter MacCallum (Toronto). Antonia Hirsch presents a ten-part photographic suite showing individuals attempting to hold their hands exactly one meter apart. Peter MacCallum presents a selection of photographs from his multi-decade art documentation practice. Euan Macdonald will present a sequential drawing created especially for this exhibition.
