Angie Keefer: Second Thoughts Canadian Book Launch and Tour

June 20, 2019 at7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the launch of Second Thoughts, a selection of writing from 2008 to 2018 by artist Angie Keefer. This compilation traverses numerous disciplines from physics to philosophy, incorporating biographical elements and running parallel to Keefer’s visual practice.

Without directly addressing her own visual work, the book shadows the artist’s research, capturing her thoughts, travels, and encounters across a broad spectrum of subjects, including octopuses, protons, pictographs, poets, grammar, economy, love, loss, and politics. Keefer will be in attendance at Canadian book launches for a reading and signing.


About the Author

Angie Keefer is an artist, writer, teacher, and publisher, though the distinctions among these categories are much less definitive in Keefer’s work than comma-separated terms would indicate. Taking an interest in the incidental aspects of art-making and its dissemination — from critical & commercial positioning through language, to surrounding labour, and shifting market forces — Keefer often pulls at the stitching that holds the enterprise together.  Her writing has appeared in numerous artists’ publications, as well as Mousse, Harvard Design Magazine, and Bulletins of The Serving Library.
