Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens & at Centennial Square

Allison Katz: Diary w/o Dates
21.01.2018 - 18.03.2018

Reflecting the diverse range of Allison Katz's production, Diary w/o Dates considers the unique character of each of Oakville Galleries’ exhibition sites: at Centennial Square, the UK-based Canadian artist reacts to the theatrical black-box design of the gallery with a large-scale installation of new paintings “in the round,” while at Gairloch Gardens, she presents a series of new works—including posters, ceramics and a sand painting—that play on elements of circulation and repetition inherent to both her own process and the architecture of this former residence on the shores of Lake Ontario. At the centre of the exhibition is an understanding of painting as an expansive medium that is not static or contained, but constantly in flux, forming a chain of visual associations with myriad points of connection.

Allison Katz: Diary w/o Dates is organized in collaboration with MIT List Visual Arts Center.
