We’re one step closer! September 22nd is fast approaching and we can’t wait to unveil the entire At Work show. In the mean time, we’ve installed Eva Hesse: Studiowork, the 2nd of 3 shows in this unique, three-part exhibtion. 

Organized by The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, and curated by Briony Fer and Barry Rosen, this show brings together fifty of the artist’s small “test” pieces to examine, for the first time, how Hesse’s working method in the studio informed her larger sculptures.

This is a rare and remarkable opportunity for Toronto audiences to examine a newly discovered aspect of Hesse’s work, and to consider her ongoing relevance to current issues in contemporary art practice. 

Check it out and let us know what you think!

Eva Hesse: Studiowork is organized by The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, in collaboration with Camden Arts Centre, London; Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; and Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
