Description

With Alec in Mind, is a limited edition artistbook by J.J. Kegan McFadden published by As We Try & Sleep Press on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba (19 April – 09 June, 2012). As a multi-venue project, With Alec in Mind, also included off-site components exhibited at Oseredok Ukrainian Cultural and Education Centre and La Maison des artistes visuels francophones . Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art published a compendium text as the literary feature in their magazine, Prefix Photo (issue 25, vol. 13 #1, May 2012).

In addition to archival photographs, imagery of artifacts from the estate, and an inserted postcard of the crime scene at current day, this book contains reproductions of artwork by: K.J. (Jack) Butler, Kelly Clark, Sarah Crawley, Shane ‘Mini’ Davis, Helene E. Dyck, William Eakin, Jeff Funnell, Allan Geske, Larry Glawson, John Gurdebeke, Patti Johnson, Laura Letinsky, Arnold Saper, and Diana Thorneycroft.

Description of Artist:

J.J. Kegan McFadden is a Winnipeg-based artist, curator, and writer. His work, in exhibition and print form, often questions how memory functions in society. With Alec in Mind, was a multi-facetted curatorial project incorporating storytelling as a methodology to consider the 1995 murder of Alec by his grandson that took place in rural Manitoba. Using nearly 100 works of art in the collection of the Manitoba Art Bank by more than fifty artists, Kegan juxtaposed drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, and sculpture with material from Alec’s estate as well as an audio walking guide to attempt a creative analysis of the traumatic event.
