Akin Collective + Akin Projects are excited to present our 2018 programming in two Vitrine Galleries at our St. Clair studios and Dupont studios. These miniature galleries will feature the diverse talent of our studio members with travelling installations rotating each month. Each artist will be featured for the first month at Akin Dupont and second month at Akin St. Clair.
Our February/March exhibit features the work of Akin Lansdowne member, Eloisa Morra. Eloisa’s work deals with the problems of perception in figurative painting and the inclusion of multiple narratives in a picture.
As Philip Guston once wrote, “A good painting should be a clear enigma”. How can the artist create a visual alphabet, avoiding both the trivialization of reality of naturalism and the stillness of the symbol? Clear Enigma presents an imagined space where two different creatures — the Eye and the Duende — meet, exploring the multiple feelings and stories generated by their encounter.
The exhibition runs for the month of February in our Dupont Akin Vitrine Gallery, located in the Clock Factory Building at 1485 Dupont Street (entrance on Campbell Avenue). Find Akin Studio 215 on the second floor and follow the sign into the hallway around the corner. The building is open from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday. To arrange a viewing outside of those hours please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Clear Enigma’ will then travel to the Akin St. Clair Vitrine Gallery and be on view for the month of March at 1747 St. Clair Avenue West. Gallery is street level and can be viewed at any time.
