Bill Burns (ON) – SOVA Residency

Oct 19 – Nov 4

Bill Burns comes from a bookselling family in Saskatchewan where he learned about tractors, books, and art from farmers, poets, and monks. He studied at Goldsmiths College in London, England and has shown his work about animals and advanced industrialism at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the ICA, London and the KW, Berlin.

Bill will be the visiting artist at SOVA and Robert Service as well as an artist about town. He will be looking into questions about time and place. He might be asking “What would you like to tell people in Toronto about what’s going on in Dawson City?’  or “What would you tell your future grandchild about life in Dawson City in 2023?”
