Diary w/o Dates is a solo exhibition of new work by Allison Katz displayed across both Oakville Galleries venues. Reflecting the diverse range of Katz's production, the exhibition considers the unique character of each site. At Centennial Square, Katz responds to the soft Brutalism of late 1960s civic architecture and the theatrical black-box design of the gallery with a large-scale installation of new paintings "in the round." At Gairloch Gardens, Katz also presents several 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 private residence on the shores of Lake Ontario.

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

FREE TALK WITH SOOK-YIN LEE

Tuesday 6 March 2018, 7:00 pm
Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square

Join us for our Big Thinkers speakers series with Canadian broadcaster, actress, artist, and filmmaker Sook-Yin Lee. The CBC host and former MuchMusic VJ will discuss her exceptionally varied career, one that has seen her hone an approach to storytelling driven by candour, curiosity and a fresh take on the world around her. Lee’s talk is held alongside Allison Katz’s exhibition at Oakville Galleries, Diary w/o Dates, which sees Katz exhibit a series of works that traffic in spontaneous connections, idiosyncratic observations and visual rhymes.
