Canadian artist Micah Lexier has built an
international reputation working in a variety of media including
sculpture, photography, drawing, printmaking, and installation work.
Particularly interested in expressions of time passing and age, Lexier
makes work that is often numerical in its themes.
Over the past three decades, Lexier has produced a significant body of ephemeral
material including, for instance, unique invitations that have taken the
form of prize ribbons, printed balloons, custom-minted coins and
individually numbered cards.
Micah Lexier: I’m Thinking of a
Number is a survey of the artist’s invitations, posters, bookworks,
multiples, t-shirts, coin, catalogues, prints, boxed sets, magazine
projects, and other works in multiple format produced between 1980 and
2010. Edited by Jan Peacock and designed by Andrew Di Rosa, the
publication includes an introduction by Peacock and essays by AA Bronson
(General Idea, Printed Matter) and Christina Ritchie (Director,
Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver).
