RBC Work Room is an initiative that supports the development of collaborative, contemporary art projects. In this studio-like working space, artists conceive and produce artworks onsite, resulting in a fully realized exhibition.

This third installment features artist Gloria Mok working in residence for six weeks. The artist will create a series of works on paper, focusing on mark making techniques and working from her stream of consciousness. Her exhibition, Metamorphosis, will explore ideas found in science and medicine. 

RBC Work Room is an extension of the RBC New Works Gallery, which features new artworks by Alberta artists. This project series continues the Art Gallery of Alberta’s commitment to supporting the work of Alberta artists.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and presented as a part of the Poole Centre of Design with the support of the RBC Emerging Artists Project.
