40th Anniversary

Blair Marten


Blair Marten's academically-inspired artwork has taken many forms over the years, but it almost always reflects his dry wit. When Marten was a University of Winnipeg student, he developed the tendency to locate himself in imaginary places evoked by books he was reading. His contribution to Show + Tell is a campus-wide installation of these sites as student bulletin board advertisements. Ads will be posted around the University seeking roommates to share invented places while others will seek customers for services provided by make-believe characters and/or buyers for imaginary objects.
