Adieu, Mel

Seminar, in English and French, Paul-Desmarais Theatre, 23 January 2013 , 6pm

In a conversation about the career of late artist-architect Melvin Charney, the CCA pays tribute to his work. Charney, who died on 17 September, 2012, was a close friend of the CCA, having developed and designed its sculpture garden. During this tribute, George Baird, Serge Carreau, Odile Decq, Alan J. Knight and Gwendolyn Owens explore his unique approach to the intersection between art and architecture: from his proposal for the Canadian pavilion for the Osaka World Fair in 1970 and to his later works, including his prize-winning entry for the Canadian Human Rights Monument in Ottawa. The event is moderated by Phyllis Lambert.
