John Nyman’s creative and critical writing practices frequently intersect with the visual arts. He is a founding member of the plumb art gallery collective in Toronto, where he has contributed to didactic texts and essays, facilitated experimental documentation and response projects, curated installations in “the pit” project space, and exhibited in group shows. His text-based artworks, bookworks, and artist’s books are closely linked to his interest in visual and erasure poetry.

John has reviewed art exhibitions for Border Crossings and C Magazine, and written exhibition essays for shows at Doris McCarthy Gallery, Susan Hobbs, and Erin Stump Projects. For a more comprehensive list of publications, see John’s Critical CV.
