A Separate Peace, and other bouquets

Kegan McFadden


A collection of individual works that can be read in concert with one another or on their own, A Separate Peace, and other bouquets continues McFadden’s exploration of the queer imperative through printed matter, experiments in textiles and sculpture. The centrepiece of the exhibition is a new artist’s book produced by flask (Victoria) comprising 500 images of men in pairs facing away from the camera—a meditation on the various relationships that exist between them. 

Kegan McFadden is a writer, curator, publisher and artist whose work has been exhibited in print and exhibition form throughout Canada. Partners in Crime, a fifteen-year survey of McFadden’s printed matter, artist’s books and multiples was produced for HOTAM Press (Vancouver) in 2020.
