Join us for a discussion with artist Michael Vickers, Co-Director of Akin, which provides affordable studio space to practicing artists and a range of public programs in Toronto through its sister non-profit organization, Akin Projects.
Michael Vickers works in sculpture, installation and painting. His practice addresses the seductive and poetic qualities of form and text, while investigating the limits of different materials and presentation methods.

He has exhibited his work at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Mercer Union, Toronto; the Siena Art Institute, Italy; and Clark House Initiative, Mumbai. His multidisciplinary practice has been featured in publications such as Art F City, Esse Arts + Opinions, Canadian Art, The Toronto Star, and GQ Magazine. Michael Vickers is a former resident of Barrie and is currently based in Toronto.
