Book Launch The Illuminations Project
Saturday 24 October 2015

Art Metropole

Join us to celebrate the launch of The Illuminations Project, a book by Shary Boyle and Emily Vey Duke.

The Illuminations Project is a decade-long collaboration between two artists, feminists and friends. Boyle and Duke's visionary call-and-response—to which Boyle contributed images and Duke texts—forges connections between subversion and joy, drawing and writing. It is an exquisitely rendered road map through the chaos of growing up female, fearless and hungry for meaning.

The Illuminations Project is published by Oakville Galleries to accompany Boyle and Duke's exhibition of the same name, held at Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square in fall 2014. Copies of the publication will be available for sale at the launch for $30 each.
