WILL ALSOP’S FIRST NORTH AMERICAN ART EXHIBIT PREMIERES AT
OLGA KORPER GALLERY JUNE 8 – JULY 28
Toronto, 31 May 2007
Olga Korper Gallery Exhibition
Will Alsop the internationally renowned architect, artist and lecturer, responsible for the provocative OCAD table top building will be unleashing his equally expressive contemporary paintings in his first North American Art Exhibit entitled Cultural Fog at the Olga Korper gallery June 8 – July 28th.
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.

A remarkable new landmark designed by SMC Alsop opened recently in Toronto, marking the launch of a massive urban renewal effort in the City of Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood. The brightly coloured timber-clad box will act as a sales pavilion for the WESTside Lofts, a major new residential development set to regenerate downtown Toronto’s celebrated artistic neighbourhood and create new connections across the city.
