Jinny Yu: At Once opening

Saturday, May 4, 2 pm
J.S. McLean Centre for Indigenous and Canadian Art

Join us to mark the opening of Jinny Yu: At Once with remarks by the artist and Georgiana Uhlyarik, Fredrik S. Eaton Curator, Canadian Art. Remarks are at 2 pm. 

Jinny Yu makes her AGO debut with an exhibition of new works, including oil on aluminum paintings and works on paper. Born in Korea and now based in Ottawa and Berlin, for the past twenty years, she has been an active professional artist and educator, using abstract and geometric forms to consider the implications of mass migration and rapid social change. In a departure from her usual practice of exclusively using black paint, here Yu uses vivid colours, transparency and distorted forms to continue questioning what it means to be a guest and a host. This exhibition is curated by Georgiana Uhlyarik, Fredrik S. Eaton Curator of Canadian Art, AGO.
