Sink or Swim: Exhibition Tour with Holger Kalberg
Saturday, May 21, 1:00pm

Monte Clark is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Holger Kalberg, on view May 14 – June 11, 2022. 

 Kalberg is known for his compelling canvases that combine figuration and abstraction to construct complex visual narratives in dialogue with the legacies of modernism. His recent work depicts figures in seemingly ambiguous relationships ⁠— swimming or sinking, embracing or at odds, lost in contemplation or hallucinating, conveying psychological states that reveal the tensions and uncertainty of contemporary life.  

Holger Kalberg was born in Germany and currently lives and works in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He received his BFA from Emily Carr University (2001) and his MFA from the Chelsea School of Art in London (2007). Kalberg has been shortlisted for the RBC Painting Competition on three separate occasions, and served on the jury for the 2013 award. Kalberg has recently exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the University of Manitoba, the Belkin Satellite Gallery, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, and the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. His work is collected by the Royal Bank of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery, TD Bank, the Belkin Gallery, and numerous other public and private collections.
