Teeth, Loan and Trust Company, Consolidated: The Trylowsky Collection

September 23, 2021


This exhibition is part of a two-part series, called The Great Exchange. Coinciding with Teeth, Loan and Trust Company: The Trylowsky Collection

Dr. Zenon Trylowsky opened his dental practice on the twelfth floor of the Vancouver Block Building at Granville and Georgia Street in 1996. Like Tzanck Check, the majority of work in Trylowsky’s collection was acquired through exchange — particularly beneficial for artists working independently without a dental plan. In 1997, Trylowsky began collaborating with curator Patrik Andersson who that same year founded Trapp Projects, a curatorial platform initiated to introduce local and international artists which regularly transformed his private office across the hall from his dental practice into Trylowsky Gallery. For this project, this tradition continues with the Griffin exhibiton and an offsite show at the dental clinic, Office Work, which presents work by Kim Kennedy Austin, Ryan Quast and Neil Wedman. These dual exhibitions at the Griffin and the dental office highlight a selection of works from this collection’s 20 year history.*
