Reception: November 2nd from 6:00 to 8:00pm
Exhibition runs until November 6th
4th Floor Cupola & Suite #435, cSPACE Marda Loop

You are invited to join the Calgary Allied Arts Foundation’s studio resident, Eve Johnson, for the opening of her exhibition The World is a Woman, The Woman is a Worker. This exhibition is the result of her residency in the CAAF studio—a mixed media project of fibre sculpture, and multiple “thread paintings”. These pieces explore the relationship between the earth, women, and capitalism.

Eve Johnson is a visual artist living and working in Calgary. Born with disabilities, she has been creating since the age of three. While taking college level art courses at the age of sixteen, Eve realised that the art establishment was not a good fit for her. She soon found herself ousted from this setting and began creating independently. Over ten years, she created simply for herself and received the label of “outsider artist”. Despite this, Eve joined the National accessArts Centre in late spring of 2021. Since joining this institution, Eve has had her work shown locally and internationally—as far away as Seoul, South Korea.
