Description

ALMANAC includes contributions by artists and writers that draw upon and subvert subjects typically found in traditional almanac compendiums, including entries pertaining to the botanical, zoological, mycological, environmental, instructional, historical, astrological, geological, edible, predictive, narrative, and sub-cultural.

While a traditional almanac typically spans an annual cycle for the seasons ahead, the collected works and contained knowledge in this book favour alternative, non-linear and marginal understandings of encounters in-the-world, orders and epistemologies

Contributors
Basil AlZeri; Diane Borsato; Tanya Busse and Joar Nango; Maggie Groat; Jason de Haan; FASTWÜRMS; Jesse Harris; Kelly Jazvac; Faith La Rocque; Jimmy Limit; Tanya Lukin Linklater; Dylan Miner; Amish Morrell; Crystal Mowry; Alicia Nauta; Open Structures; Anne Riley; Walter Scott; and Kara Uzelman.

Maggie Groat is a visual artist who exhibits a range of media informed by salvage practices and collage methodologies. She has self-published several multiples and books including Studies for Possible Futures, the recipient of the Artist Book of the Moment awarded by the Art Gallery of York University in 2012. She is the editor of The Lake, an alternative guide including the work of over twenty artists and writers, published by Art Metropole in 2014. Her work has been included in exhibitions at Mercer Union, YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Art Gallery of York University (Toronto), Western Front, SFU Audain Gallery (Vancouver), Rodman Hall Art Centre (St. Catharines), and Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff).
