Exhibition announcement

The Embassy of Canada is pleased to present a unique exhibition of 10 internationally acclaimed artists who have significantly influenced today’s Toronto art scene: Matthew Carver, Janieta Eyre, Dyan Marie, Alex McLeod, Sasha Pierce, Curtis Talwst Santiago, Jon Sasaki, Daisuke Takeya, Winnie Truong, Douglas Walker.

The artists have been active in both the public and commercial art scene for decades and are known for using challenging new techniques, from oil painting to photo-based artwork and digital images. Their works reflect on the importance of diversity in contemporary society and Viewers are encouraged to dive and read into multiple meanings layered underneath the surface of each work.

Through Multi Layered Surfaces, we look forward to introducing a new audience to this innovative group of artists. The exhibit includes the Tokyo premier of several new works.

In addition to the exhibit at the Embassy’s Prince Takamado Gallery, we encourage you to explore the satellite exhibitions featuring these Toronto artists at the former residence of Japanese legendary sculptor Denchu Hirakushi (May 19 to May 27); Wakayama Museum (May 16 to June 30); and Nihonbashi Institute of Contemporary Art (NICA) (May 17 to June 15).

A series of exhibits not to be missed.
