WORKS ON PAPER
After last year’s (second annual) paper show, in which more than 50 artists were invited to present works on paper, the premise for this year’s exhibition is significantly scaled back: 17 artists were invited to submit a single work on paper. Further, the brief was relatively simple: artists were allowed to do whatever they wanted, provided that this was completed on the standard paper size of 76x55cm. The resulting works span a spectrum of media, subject matter, and styles.
A few artists, such as Miles Debas, Holly Mills, and Antonia Showering, have previously shown in the paper show; the majority of artists will be making their debut both in the paper show and at the gallery, including Chris Bogia, Christian Clayton, Sainer Etam, Caroline Larsen, Antone Könst, Eleanor Swordy, Fabian Treiber, and Sara Anstis. Beers welcomes Robert Fry (who previously showed with the gallery in 2013), and Matthew John Atkinson, who will both be presenting solo exhibitions with the gallery in 2019; and Gord Bond, who will be taking part in the gallery’s presentation for Zona Maco Art Fair.
