Live Longer, Piss Off Your Heirs | Curated by Olga Korper & Taiga Lipson.
Propeller Gallery presents our much-anticipated annual guest curated exhibition, now in its 20th year. Each year Propeller invites a prominent figure within the arts community to contribute their knowledge and experience in developing a theme and selecting works for a completely unique exhibition. This year we have the pleasure of hosting Toronto-based curator Olga Korper and her granddaughter Taiga Lipson, an up-and-coming curator in her own right. The exhibition will feature works chosen by Korper and Lipson from submitted works.
