Members' Access: Pacita Abad

Wednesday, October 9 - Friday, October 11, 2024
Art Gallery of Ontario

Join us for exclusive Members’ Access from Wednesday October 9 - Friday, October 11, 2024 to mark the opening of Pacita Abad.

The exuberant and wide-ranging works of the late Philippine-born artist Pacita Abad make their Canadian debut as part of her first retrospective. This acclaimed exhibition includes more than 100 artworks showcasing Abad's experiments in different mediums: textiles, works on paper, paintings, prints, and a range of archival material and studio ephemera. Much of Abad’s work is defined by her engagement in social justice and her exploration of materials. She is best known for her large-scale hanging trapuntos, a form of quilted painting made of stitched and stuffed canvas.

Members always see it first! Simply show your digital Membership card to enter the Gallery and at the exhibition entrance to see the show.
