2021, the two Canadian artists Matt Shane and Jim Holyoak will come to Laholm to live and work for three weeks. The residency project is a collaboration between Teckningsmuseet and Konst i Halland, a regional resource center run by Halland’s Art Museum in collaboration with Region Halland.

Matt Shane, born 1981 in Vancouver, works as an artist and art teacher in Montréal. Jim Holyoak was born in the United States in 1978 but grew up in the small town of Aldergrove, Canada. Today he works an artist and writer based in the province of British Columbia. Matt and Jim have been collaborating for twenty years and their artwork has been exhibited around the world, most recently at the Midlands Arts Center in Birmingham, England.

What will be shown this time remains to be seen. One of their signum is large drawing installations that extend across the walls. Matt and Jim arrive in Laholm on May 20, and their exhibition »Walloways« will be shown at Teckningsmuseet May 30–September 6. Keep an eye on our website for more information.
