Canadian artist Shary Boyle was the featured speaker for the 2014 Goldfarb Lecture in Visual Arts at York University.

Boyle spoke about her cross-disciplinary experiments with music, sculpture, theatre and performance over the past 15 years. Balancing the social worlds of travel and collaboration with an intensely private studio practice, Boyle reflected on the necessity and power of each. The value of intensity, empathy, emotional intelligence and identification with the marginal was considered, and the social functions of art and music examined.
The Goldfarb Lecture in Visual Arts is made possible through the generous support of Joan and Martin Goldfarb, longstanding benefactors of the Department of Visual Art & Art History and Faculty of Fine Arts at York University.
