To commemorate their second monograph, The Merlin Years, The Drake Hotel and Narwhal are hosting the members of Team Macho for a lecture and book signing–Chris Buchan, Stephen Appleby-Barr, Lauchie Reid, and Nicholas Aoki. Please join all of the members of Team Macho for this free event at the Drake Hotel on Tuesday, June 5; doors open at 6:30.
Team Macho is an iconic Toronto-based art collective with a practice that spans fine art and illustration, from the crudely rendered to the classically painted. The talk is a rare chance to hear all members of Team Macho discuss their projects, their recent artist residency at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) this year, and the inner workings of their collaborative practice. The talk will begin at 7:00pm and will be followed by a book signing and reception at 8:00pm.
The Merlin Years surveys the works of Team Macho from 2007 to 2012, and features select pieces from shows in Toronto, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and New York. It also showcases their installation at the AGO earlier this year, Axis Mundi. They will be signing copies of The Merlin Years and their previous book, Fancy Action Now, which will be available for sale at the event. You can also pick up copies of The Merlin Years and Fancy Action Now from Magic Pony, or order them from our online store!
