Passion Over Reason: Tom Thomson & Joyce Wieland (2017)

hardcover, 160 pages
colour images, mylar overlays by Zachari Logan
McMichael Canadian Art Collection, 2017
Author: Sarah Stanners (exhibition curator), with essays by Anna Hudson and Daisy Charles


Passion Over Reason: Tom Thomson & Joyce Wieland sits at the intersection of exhibition catalogue and bookwork, serving as a site for documentation and intervention. Independently published by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, with the assistance of Ontario150 Community Celebration Program, this limited edition stands as unique contribution to institutional art publications. Featuring reproductions of upwards of 130 original artworks and archival materials from the exhibition, it is a visual conversation between major works by Canada's own feminist art pioneer Joyce Wieland and masterworks by Canadian painting cult figure Tom Thomson. A third artist in focus for this publication is Zachari Logan (b. 1980), who adds yet another anachronistic comparison and point of influence into this unexpected mix.
