    Micah Lexier: I Am The Coin

    How do you stick 20,000 letter-faced coins to a gallery wall? With graph paper, 20,000 pinpricks and a lot of concentration. Watch as Micah Lexier's I Am the Coin is installed at the National Gallery of Canada, and listen to the artist describe the work. I Am the Coin will be presented as part of Canadian and Indigenous Art: 1968 to Present, on view at the NGC as of May 3, 2017.
