Artist Representation/Exhibition

Jen Aitken now represented by Georgia Scherman Projects
Jen Aitken is an artist based in Toronto. Closely observing the built environment, Aitken makes sculptures and drawings that combine formal ambiguity with structural clarity. She received her MFA in 2014 from the University of Guelph, and her BFA in 2010 from Emily Carr University. Aitken is the 2017 recipient of the Hnatyshyn Foundation and TD Bank Emerging Visual Artist Award, and has received grants from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts. She has recently presented solo exhibitions at YYZ Artists’ Outlet in Toronto, as well as at Battat Contemporary and Centre Clark in Montreal. Her work has been featured in group shows at Diaz Contemporary, Hamilton Artists Inc, the Kamloops Art Gallery, and the Richmond Art Gallery. Aitken looks forward to a group exhibition with Georgia Scherman Projects in the fall of 2017.
