Taking place from January 26-February 23, 2013 at the Olga Korper Gallery in Toronto, this exhibition features renowned British architect Will Alsop.
Will Alsop (OBE RA) is an architect and an artist but is most often referred to as an anarchist. The core values of his practices are originality, innovation and expression. He courts controversy in equal parts to advocating pragmatism, all in the name of joy and delight. This hedonistic focus has led to buildings, installations, products and paintings whose hallmarks are a vibrant approach, brilliant colour and unusual forms.
A seemingly disparate range of influences and day-to-day encounters with colleagues, students, clients, and many in the arts has led to designs by Will that are completely outside the expected norm of architecture or indeed of the architect. An artist who is determined to sometimes practice NOT ARCHITECTURE, Will designs brand identities, graphics, environmental systems, interiors and products.
The opening reception runs from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on Saturday, January 26, 2013.
