Cliff Eyland: Library of Babel – A Retrospective celebrates the life and work of the late Canadian artist, curator, writer and educator, Cliff Eyland.

The exhibition mixes more than one thousand of Eyland’s signature three by five-inch paintings and drawings with videos, photographs, digital prints, and selected archival documents to explore his ambitious forty-year career. The short stories of Argentine writer, Jorge Luis Borges, and his postmodern literary devices were an early influence on Eyland’s art. The Library of Babel retrospective is organized around a conceptual framework inspired by Borges’ metaphorical concept of the library as the Universe, described as both vast, infinite and ultimately unknowable, in his popular short story The Library of Babel.
