Curator Josh Fischer will discuss the various ways installation artists approach the white cube gallery space, often using inexpensive, discarded materials. Drawing from historical examples, his work at Rice Gallery, and CAMH's exhibition flow     by Jae Ko, Fischer will talk about the creative ingenuity behind these spatial/material transformations and the unique qualities of these artist-created environments.
