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 both exhibition-scale programming and 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.
