Aspen Art Museum


In the House of the Trembling Eye:
an exhibition staged by Allison Katz

May 29-Sep 29
In Summer 2024, the Aspen Art Museum will present a museum-wide exhibition staged by Allison Katz, approaching exhibition-making as an expanded form of painting and reflecting on how time and vision accumulate within a frame. As such, the exhibition will form a study of painting’s endless accretion, spilling out into the world from public displays and private corners.

Allison Katz was born in Montreal, Canada in 1980 and currently lives and works in London, England. She studied fine arts at Concordia University in Montreal and received her MFA from Columbia University in New York in 2008. Katz received widespread critical recognition for her first traveling UK solo exhibition ‘Artery’ at Nottingham Contemporary in 2021 and Camden Art Centre in 2022, with the accompanying exhibition catalogue released in 2023. Her work was included in the 59th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale curated by Cecilia Alemani. Katz recently participated in Pompeii Commitments, a research project and artistic residency at the archaeological site in Italy. Additional significant institutional solo exhibitions of her work have been organized by the MIT List Center for the Arts, Cambridge, MA; Oakville Galleries, Oakville, Canada; and Kunstverein Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.
