We are delighted to invite you to a networking event at Emalin Gallery in collaboration with Young Professionals in the Arts. 

Emalin Gallery will be hosting the second solo exhibition of Greek Canadian artist Athena Papadopoulos called The Smurfette.

Refreshments will be provided. 

About the exhibition 

Utilizing a list of cosmetic, medicinal and edible ingredients, Athena Papadopoulos typically stains layers of cotton bedsheets with red wine, lipstick, hair dyes, Pepto Bismol and self-tanner. Connoting the practice of self-augmentation these intense hues draw attention to how such commodified materials are marketed towards certain consumer archetypes. These archetypes then appear in drawings and photographs of women layered into dense collages: Papadopoulos chemically transfers, cuts, and stitches her own photographs into and alongside imagery gleaned from literature, art history and popular culture.
