Longtime Oakville Galleries favourite Liz Magor just opened her retrospective you you you at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Zurich last week. Here’s a throwback to a survey of her early works here in Oakville in 1993, which included this terrific piece Dorothy, A Resemblance (1981), a portrait rendered through cast lead objects.

We’ve got Mies on our mind this week. Here’s a glimpse of Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s 2001 video installation Alltagszeit (In Ordinary Time), which uses Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin as its backdrop to terrific effect. Exhibited at Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square back in 2005. Photo: Peter MacCallum.
