Evan Tyler is an artist, musician, occasional curator and a writer of fiction who is based out of Toronto, Canada. Tyler has exhibited and curated both nationally and internationally. From 2010-2014 he owned, curated and facilitated the contemporary art space on Queen St. West known as gallerywest, and won “Best Gallery in Toronto” in 2012, 2013 and 2014 awarded by The Liberty Villager.
His artwork focuses on the voice and performance, blending the fictional and autobiographical. This synthesis most often produces tragicomical characters/personas who act out stories about desire, addiction, excess, vulnerability and anxiety. These narratives take form as short movies. Tyler also works in still-image, installation, music, collaboration, drawing and the written word.
Evan Tyler will give his residency talk on Thursday, September 20 at 12:00 pm at our downtown campus – this artist talk is free and open to everyone.
