A Number of Things

Micah Lexier
Artists' Books
20.2 × 25.5 × 0.4 cm

Developed out of an interest in the strategies of early conceptualism, Micah Lexier’s practice engages documentary and ephemeral approaches to consider systems of measurement and how they relate to the representation of identity. From books, installations and archives to sculpture, Lexier’s ongoing interest in systemization has resulted in his new project for Artspeak.

This project, entitled ‘A Number of Things’, is a colouring book that presents some of the artist’s favourite conceptual artworks as well as some related objects having to do with counting and measurement. Designed to be accessible, it is made available to Vancouver area public school children through presentations by the artist, introducing young audiences to idea-based contemporary visual art.
