AKA Gallery 10th Anniversary

Posted on April 24, 2016 by Charles Giraud | 0 Comments

Corno exploded onto the art scene in the 1980s and has been at full throttle ever since. Her bold post-pop idiom has been her signature style. She spawned a new art movement and has influenced several generations of artists. Corno was rapidly propelled to the international stage through Opera Gallery which represented her in iconic cities such as New York, London, Paris, Venice, Monaco, Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul and Dubai.

Corno’s exhibitions have maintained a steady pace for over 35 years and she is known throughout the world.  Her work has reached a level of maturity and assurance that continues to attract new audiences and collectors. With so much wind in her sails, she took the bold step of representing herself since 2006 at AKA Gallery in Montreal.
