Scrivener’s Monthly presents an evening with thinker and artist Jalal Toufic, who will give the lecture «The Dancer’s Two Bodies.» Produced in partnership with the Audain Visual Artist in Residence program and SFU Galleries, Jalal Toufic's talk accompanies Walid Raad's exhibition at the Audain Gallery. Toufic and Raad are contemporaries whose art and writing are, almost uncannily, aligned; their works destabilize narratives of history by way of fictive philosophical and logical constructions which fold time. Each artist’s work engages a divergent range of topics, but repeatedly returns to query the history of Lebanon and its civil wars.

Jalal Toufic is a thinker and a mortal to death. He was born in 1962 in Beirut or Baghdad and died before dying in 1989 in Evanston, Illinois. He was most recently a participant in the Sharjah Biennial 11, the 9th Shanghai Biennale, Documenta 13, Art in the Auditorium III (Whitechapel Gallery) and Six Lines of Flight (SF MOMA). In 2011, he was a guest of the Artists-in-Berlin Program of the DAAD.

Co-presented with the School for Contemporary Arts Audain Visual Artist in Residence Program and SFU Galleries.
