Anna Boghiguian: Illumination
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens and at Centennial Square May 4–August 7, 2021

Anna Boghiguian is an Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin. Poetry and philosophy thread through her work, underpinning a practice that spans from intimate portrayals of the body and everyday objects to expansive installations that weave together themes of power, politics, displacement, global industry and trade. This exhibition will take place at both Oakville Galleries sites, bringing together artworks from throughout Boghiguian’s career, including little-known notebooks, drawings, and paintings made when the artist lived in Montréal and Toronto in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as recent installations. Curated by Clara Halpern (Guest Curator) and Frances Loeffler (Curator, Oakville Galleries). The exhibition will travel on to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario, in late 2021.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada. Ce projet a été rendu possible en partie grâce au gouvernement du Canada.
