Join us for an engaging discussion with leading Canadian artist Murray Favro in light of his solo exhibition Lever and Wheel at the MacLaren. In a question-and-answer style talk with curator Renée van der Avoird, Murray will share insights on his artistic practice as it relates to bicycle machining and inventions. Lever and Wheel is presented in conjunction with the Pan Am Games mountain biking competition, which takes place concurrently in Oro, Ontario.

Born in Hunstville, Ontario, Murray Favro is a London, Ontario-based artist who works in drawing, performance, sculpture and installation. Known for his highly original multidisciplinary practice, Murray’s work deals with themes of perception, invention and technology.

His work has been acquired by major institutions including the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
