a CONSTANT decade [McMaster Museum of Art]

McMaster Museum of Art presents:

a CONSTANT decade: the work of Liss Platt

May 4 – August 19, 2017
Artist Talk and Video Screening: details tba

This exhibition is a “retrospective” of Liss Platt’s Constant photographic series and related videoworks, 2006 - 2016.


Liss Platt brings elements of the everyday, along with personal and autobiographical content, into a conceptual art practice. The particular landscape represented in the Constant series is a place she has been photographing for over ten years. She is interested in the process of sustained looking, particularly at something that is familiar, and what occurs through an accumulation of images. She is also intrigued by the tension between what changes in the scene and what stays the same.

Liss Platt is a mid-career media artist and an Associate Professor in the Department of Communications and Multimedia at McMaster University. Her works have been shown nationally and internationally.  She is also a co-member of the “Shake-n’-Make” project with Hamilton-based writer and maker Claudia Manley.
