  • Spill

    Aug. 28, 2012 - Nov. 12, 2012

    This exhibition takes a look at contemporary painting from a variety of artists who are breathing new life into art’s most iconic medium. The show is marked by vibrant viscous colour and highlights artists who are experimenting with paint, using it as a sculptural tool, creating images that are at once abstract and representational or revisiting the traditions of history painting.

  • When Sparks Fly

    June 19, 2012 - Aug. 28, 2012

    Drake’s summer exhibition takes a look at mixed media installations – specifically those made with reflective elements. From shards of mirror, to sequins, to lottery tickets, these works invoke a host of pop-cultural references, telling a story far greater than the sum of their parts.
