Daniel Barrow’s unique live-narration performances have been described as being like a graphic novel brought to life with the simplicity and wonder of a magic lantern show.  Barrow was the winner of the 2010 Sobey Art Award. He has presented his artwork at Plug In ICA, Winnipeg; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; PS1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles; The International Film Festival Rotterdam; and the British Film Institute.  A special feature of Barrow’s presentation for Guelph will include excerpts from his live performances.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
