Announcing the new /edition Residency at Open Studio
Partnering with /edition Art Book Fair, Open Studio is pleased to announce a new mentorship residency highlighting the relevant intersection of an art book/multiples fair and a contemporary printmaking centre. Each year, /edition will award an artist with a residency opportunity at Open Studio, pairing them with a skilled printmaker to hone skills and create original prints in our 7,500 sq/ft printmaking studio.
We’re proud to share that /edition has awarded Dorian Fitzgerald with the inaugural /edition Open Studio Residency. Dorian’s foray into printmaking will premiere at the 3/edition Art Book Fair in October 2018. Dorian will be working with intaglio printer and Open Studio member Alex Thompson.
Dorian FitzGerald (b. 1975, Toronto) makes monumental paintings of materially excessive situations. Past subject matter includes the dining room of Stefano Gabbana’s yacht; the throne room of the Queluz National Palace in Lisbon; table decorations for a party thrown by Oprah Winfrey for Sidney Poitier; a Fabergé Egg ornamented by a rose trellis; a Cartier bracelet and an image of Elton John’s sunglasses collection at his estate in Old Windsor, England. He is a 2001 graduate of the Art and Art History Program of the University of Toronto Mississauga and Sheridan College.
