Opening Reception: Anique Jordan & Raul Aguliar Canela

Join us on Thursday, May 16, in opening two new exhibitions at Patel Brown Toronto!

All are welcome!

Anique Jordan


Anique Jordan is an artist, writer and curator who looks to answer the question of possibility in everything she creates. As an artist, Jordan works in photography, sculpture and performance often employing the theory of hauntology to challenge historical or dominant narratives and creating, what she calls, impossible images. Recently, she has been thinking about time, the surreal, and the rejection of the singular and linear ways of thinking or being in the world. Jordan has exhibited across a number of museums in Canada, and received numerous awards, grants, and fellowships including the 2017 Toronto Arts Foundation Emerging Artist of the Year award. Jordan recently received an MFA in Photography at Rhode Island School of Design. ‘Underbelly’ will be her first solo exhibition since

Raúl Aguilar Canela

Smart like a sun

Raúl Aguilar Canela is a Mexican-born artist based in Montreal whose main work explores painting as a post-medium practice. His current work serves as a space to converge personal stories with contemporary metanarratives of individual determination, self-exploitation, immigration, masculinity, and hard work. He received his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA) in 2021. He graduated with a BFA from Concordia University (Montréal) in 2014 and a Bachelor in International Relations from Universidad de las Américas, (Puebla) in 2011. In 2019, his work was selected to be part of the Bienal de Pintura Rufino Tamayo XVIII, in México City.
