Mark A. Cheetham will be presenting his talk Getting Some Distance on Likening concerning the exhibit Struck by Likening: The Power & Discontents of Artworld Analogies. This talk will explore commonplace declarations such as “Tom Thomson is the Van Gogh of Canada” and Norval Morrisseau is “the Picasso of the North” and the issues raised by such comparisons. These include national aspiration, genius, gender, anachronism, inter-media comparison, humour, and cultural appropriation.

The exhibit is on display until December 2nd.
