Alex Close, The Beast That Ate Herself, 2023, acrylic on canvas.

Please join us to celebrate the opening of pitch, slip, on June 22 at 6 pm.

pitch, slip is an exhibition of new paintings by Oshawa-raised artist Alex Close. Through her work, Close explores how our experiences in public spaces are shaped by the fragmented, layered, and ever-changing memories we have of those places. From public performance venues to virtual reality, she is drawn to question engineered experiences and the role that trust plays in our day-to-day lives. This body of work is reflective of Close’s evolving approach to abstract painting and her bold embrace of experimentation in the RMG’s artist residency studio.

This exhibition is supported by the RBC Foundation’s RBC Emerging Artist Project.
