IBM Ring 43 Presents a Chicago-land exclusive lecture by

FISM Grand Prix Champion, Shawn Farquhar

Friday September 10, 2010 7:30 PM
Saint Francis Hospital, South Conference Room
355 Ridge Ave
Evanston IL
Guests $15


In 2009 at FISM Bejing, China, Shawn won both the Grand Prix World
Champion of Close-Up, and World Champion of Cards, a feat never before
accomplished by any other magician. In 2001 he was awarded First Place
in I.B.M.'s Gold Cups Close-Up Competition. He was also declared Society
of American Magicians Close-Up Champion. These are just a few of the
many awards earned by Shawn.


Shawn will begin the evening by performing his FISM winning act. This
alone would be worth coming to see.

Shawn's Bread and Butter lecture will cover many of Shawn's signature
routines including MatriXpress, the fastest coin assembly ever; Photo Finish, a transposition with a twist; MagiCd, magic for the digital age; Tagged, a magic effect with a laugh; Signed Card to Wallet, too easy and yet deceptive; Blown Away, a visual card effect; the Deck Switch, the work
behind the scenes; and Torn 2 Pieces (performed on the Ellen DeGeneres
Show) the torn and almost restored photo.


“He’s the magic equivalent of one of the seven great wonders of the world. Once you have seen him, you’ll never forget Shawn Farquhar.”

— Graham Hey, Magic Seen Magazine, Europe’s #1 Magic Magazine


“Shawn Farquhar’s lecture is fantastic and his sense of humor makes it even more fantastic. He got standing ovations both at FFFF 2010 and the following week at the Canadian Association of Magicians convention. I would put his lecture as the best one I have seen in the last five years and I would watch it over and over again if I could. His thinking is brilliant. Shawn will be heard of around the world for his
contributions to magic in the next 10 years.”

— Obie O’Brien
