Since the OCAD building, Will has become an integral part of Toronto’s architectural renaissance. While many see the potential in areas such as the Queen West triangle, Will Alsop has also found inspiration in other city neighborhoods including Riverdale, Roncesvalles as well as Kensington Market, the subject of Cultural Fog. In this exhibit, Alsop questions the nature of urbanism and community. “I paint to learn, to exercise my brain and my imagination. Cultural Fog is my musing on the possibilities for Kensington Market and the real nature of community.”

Alsop’s international experience and outsider’s perspective provide a unique view of the city’s potential and how it can be achieved. When speaking on community, he recognizes it all comes back to a sense of civic pride and identity. “By making a city inspiring and inventive,” says Alsop, “it becomes different from anywhere else in the world.”

Alsop’s paintings have been exhibited alongside his architectural projects and by several prestigious institutions, demonstrating how art contributes to the built environment. Cultural Fog is Alsop’s first art exhibit in North America.

Time: Opening 6-9pm
Date: Jun 7
Place: Olga Korper Gallery. 17 Morrow Ave. Exhibit continues from Jun 8 to Jul 28.
