Artist Talk Allison Katz
Allison Katz (b.1980, Montreal, Canada), lives in London, UK
Allison Katz’s paintings derive from playful curiosity, puns, and irreverent wit. She draws from a diverse array of references, including art historical clichés associated with painting and the history of representation. Recurring motifs such as mouths, roosters, noses, fairies, and cabbages add up to a personal, auto fictional lexicon of psychologically charged subject matter. Katz is included in the 59th Biennale di Venezia, The Milk of Dreams, on view through November 2022, and is currently participating in Pompeii Commitments, a research project and artistic residency at the archeological site. Recent solo exhibitions include Camden Art Centre (London, 2022), Canada House (London, 2022), Nottingham Contemporary (2021), ) and MIT List Center for the Arts (Cambridge, MA, 2018).
