This season is Agnes’s love letter to Kingston. It is written as a constellation of solo exhibitions, commissions and interventions that rightfully celebrate and elevate the culture and artists of our hometown. Kingston artists are creatives and entrepreneurs, astute aestheticians and community activists alike.

All Agnes staff collaborated to choreograph this final season in our current facility, which has made its planning process particularly special: as an end and a new beginning. We are proud to share these artists’ sensibilities and their slow and steady commitment to transforming the culture of this city.

Refreshments are available with remarks around 6:30 pm. The dance party with Kingston-based DJ Kid Koncussion starts at 7:30 pm. Come and celebrate with us!
