The show is the sixth iteration of Galerie Anna’s annual art exhibition. “Iskwalado” refers to local carpenter’s tool, the iskwala — a ruled metal straightedge set at right angles to a straight piece — used for measuring and marking square work. The artworks showcased in the show are uniform in size (40 x 41 inches).
As in the past, there shall be uniformity in diversity as each participating artist is given freedom to express their trademark style given the standard measurement.
