About the artist
Allison Katz (b. 1980, Montreal, Canada; lives and works in London, UK). Recent solo exhibitions include MIT List Visual Arts Center, USA (2018); Oakville Galleries, Canada (2018); We boil at different degrees, The Approach, London (2016); Kunstverein Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany (2015), Rumours, Echoes, Boatos, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2014) and Adele, Piper Keys, London, UK (2014). The artist exhibited at Studio Voltaire in the group exhibition Notes on Neo–Camp in 2013. The artist is represented by The Approach, London.
Highly representative of a new generation of artists tackling with painting and what is it to be a contemporary painter in the 21st century, she is also creating objects, posters, videos, installations, and collaborating with artists such as Camilla Wills, Fredrik Vaerslev, and DAS INSTITUT.
Primarily a painter, Katz challenges this classic medium par excellence through the diversity of her imagery, an eclectic range of references, the here-and-nowness of her brushstroke’s trace, and the site-specificity of paintings designed to occupy a particular space.
Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.
We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.
The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
