Art Metropole Behind Your Stumbling Poster
Art Metropole pleased to announce an outdoor exhibition on public hoardings in Toronto, especially in the vicinity of Art Metropole’s Sterling Road offices, including Bloor Street West, Dundas Street West, and Roncesvalles Avenue`. These areas will feature the wheat pasted copies of Behind Your Stumbling, a 2020 poster edition by artist Kota Ezawa and writer Dodie Bellamy.
The poster is the first of a new series commissioned by Art Metropole, engaging visual artists and writers in dialogue. Produced as a single colour (b&w) 18” × 23” offset poster, Behind Your Stumbling depicts an illustration by Ezawa of Kurt Schwitters’s elaborate art installation Merzbau (1923-1937), with overlaid text written by Bellamy from her forthcoming book, Plague Widow.
