Fall Exhibitions: On view September 27, 2013 to January 5, 2014
With work from the Prairies, the USA, and the UK, Rewilding Modernity is imagined as a kind of laboratory, considering art production from the 1950s to the present, and asking how this history has been recorded and framed. The exhibition, curated by the Mendel’s Chief Curator, Lisa Baldissera, examines Saskatchewan’s relationship to modernist art practice, via the artists who lived and worked here, and the international artists who participated in the Emma Lake Workshops. The exhibition reveals a zone of flux, where notions of old and new, formalism and regionalism, are reconsidered.
They Made A Day Be A Day Here
In surveying the production of 12 female artists across the Prairies, guest curator Amy Fung has organized a dynamic exhibition that explores materiality, modernism, and the narratives of place. Fung asks how being from the Prairies might inform one’s identity and artistic production. How is living “here” a shared experience? What connections may be drawn between the mythos of flatness and isolation, and the widespread critical premise that regionalism is absorbed by globalization and modernity? In the process of selecting the works for this exhibition, Fung has literally and figuratively mapped her own experience of “here.”
