Stan Dickie: Real Man or Just Some Feller?
MFA Thesis exhibition
In Stan Dickie, Real Man or Just Some Feller?, Chris Simonite irreverently explores ideas surrounding men, music, pop culture and high art through a multimedia experience including music and animation. In the exhibition, Simonite introduces audiences to Stan Dickie, a contentious, yet vulnerable country/rock ‘star’. Simonite exposes his flaws and inconsistencies with a great deal of humour.
Chris Simonite is an Ottawa based artist who hails from Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Stan Dickie: Real Man or Just Some Feller” is his Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition for theUniversity of Ottawa.
