Winter Exhibitions: On View January 24 to March 30, 2014
Contemporary Drawings from the National Gallery of Canada
This exhibition brings together an impressive selection of recently acquired works by 25 Canadian and international artists. They employ diverse media to express physical or intangible experiences, and document the world in both its vastness and minutiae. The artists push the boundaries of the medium, mixing autobiography with illusion, myth and the fantastical, ultimately rendering the mundane extraordinary. The artists include U of S art professor Alison Norlen, and Luanne Martineau, a former Saskatonian now living in Montreal. Curated by Rhiannon Vogl of the National Gallery of Canada.
Trace Nelson: Walls of Intrigue and Cabinets of Curiosity
Victoria artist Trace Nelson has mobilized the nostalgic affection for handcrafted sock monkeys into a compelling study of DIY cultures, collecting, crafting, play theory, and the links between culture, nature and technology. The installation centres on monkey-like creatures in various media and sizes. This ambitious body of work grew from Nelson’s 2008 project to construct 100 sock monkeys. Helen Marzolf curated the exhibition, organized by Open Space artist-run centre, Victoria.
