Convoluted Beauty: In the Company of Emily Carr

This project examines Carr’s challenging experiences in London, 1899-1904, when she came to terms with her identity as a Canadian and an artist. Featured are works by Carr from major Canadian museum collections, and works by major Canadian and international artists, including Louise Lawlor, Mark Wallinger, and Charlotte Salomon. This is the first Saskatchewan exhibition to focus on Carr in nearly 20 years.

A Vital Force: The Canadian Group of Painters

This is the first major exhibition to focus on the Canadian Group of Painters, its “look” and its legacy. Some 40 works, circa 1933-1953, are displayed, by artists including Caven Atkins, A.Y. Jackson, and L.L. Fitzgerald. A Vital Force is organized and circulated by Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Kingston, Ontario.

Sympathetic Magic

The complex terrain of the real and imagined north informs this exhibition of contemporary Canadian art. Through diverse artistic perspectives, Sympathetic Magic considers ideas of nationhood, culture, and the environment. The outstanding Canadian artists featured include Raymond Boisjoly, Adad Hannah, Ken Lum, and Kevin Schmidt.
