Under the guise of a certain quiet and disciplined whimsy, the art of Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens holds a complexity of ideas, aesthetic force and allusion that overflows with interpretive valences. A collaborative and multi-authored first monograph, this rich body of text and documentation traces their recent decade of projects and exhibitions through graphing economic thought, speculative fiction and performance.

Co-published by Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, SFU Galleries and the Owens Art Gallery.
