Members' Access: Sarindar Dhaliwal: When I grow up I want to be a namer of paint colours

Friday, July 21, 5-9 pm
Art Gallery of Ontario

Join us for an exclusive Members’ Access evening on Friday, July 21st  from 5-9 pm to mark the opening of Sarindar Dhaliwal: When I grow up I want to be a namer of paint colours, which exhibits more than 40 years of artmaking by the South Asian Canadian artist. Characterized by intense colour and compelling imagery, Dhaliwal’s art investigates memory, identity and migration.

In this, her first AGO solo exhibition, the artist’s significant contribution to Canadian art will be illustrated by a selection of key works, including meticulously rendered drawings and mixed media works from the 1980s to the 2000s, alongside large-scale installations and recent photography.

Curated by Renée van der Avoird, Associate Curator, Canadian Art, this exhibition highlights two recent acquisitions: Hey Hey Paula (1998) and the cartographer’s mistake: the Radcliffe Line (2012).

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