MKG127 is proud to present The Collective,
an exhibition of new work by Jaime Angelopoulos.
Opening Saturday April 22, 2:00 to 5:00 pm
For her second solo exhibition at MKG127, Angelopoulos constructs an
installation of collage, drawing and sculpture with architectural components
influenced by La Muralla Roja—a vibrantly coloured housing complex located on the
coast of Spain. The works within the exhibition evoke a sense of optimism and
vitality through vivid colorations and buoyant gestures. Through the titles
Angelopoulos invites subjective identification with the viewer, touching on
themes of endurance and perseverance. The simple gestures in The
Collective seem to radiate beyond their physicality—unified with a potent
energy of neon and reflective chrome.
Jaime Angelopoulos received her MFA from York University (2010), BFA from
NSCAD (2005) and also studied at Meadows School of the Arts in Dallas, TX
(2006-07). She was awarded the Hazelton Sculpture Prize in 2013 and has
participated in artist residencies at KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre (Finland) and
the Banff Centre (Alberta). Solo exhibitions include at the Musée Régional de
Rimouski (Quebec), YYZ Artist Outlet (Toronto), Cambridge Galleries (Ontario)
and upcoming exhibitions at the McLaren Art Center, Barrie and the Thames Art
Gallery, Chatham (Ontario). She has presented two-person exhibitions, The Ruin
in The Refuge is the Hole (Finland) and Awkward Dimensions at LVL3 Gallery
(Chicago). Recent group exhibitions include Material Girls (tour includes
Regina, Toronto, Saskatoon and Calgary), the CAFKA.16 Biennale, Kitchener, Out
Of Line at Oakville Galleries (Ontario) and trans/FORM at MOCCA (Toronto).
Her works are held in numerous corporate, institutional and private collections
throughout Canada and the United States.
The exhibition continues until Saturday May 20.
