Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane

Artist in residence / Exhibition

October 2021
Free admission

In 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 as 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 trademarks is large drawing installations that extend across the walls. Matt and Jim arrive to Laholm in the autumn of 2021, and their exhibition »Walloways« will be shown at Teckningsmuseet during October. Keep an eye on our website for upcoming programs and more information.

The residence (and exhibition) was actually supposed to be in the spring/summer of 2020, but was postponed due to the corona pandemic.

(Residence = when an artist or group of artists is invited to a city/place/institution to live and work for a period.)
