Norman Cohn: Portraits

by Peggy Gale

Art Gallery of Ontario, Dec. 1984

This is from a publication of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) for a show curated by Peggy Gale. The first section discusses the videotapes of Norman Cohn. They are personal documentaries, or video portraits, that provide the viewer with a "slice of life". Cohn develops non-verbal narratives, "studies of individuals over a finite period of time, in a specific location and activity."

This same article was published in a catalogue for 49th Parallel, in New York.
