Making Histories: Artists, Museums, Places

May 17, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

This panel will be structured as a speculative conversation about how the history of art in Canada is written, what and who determines this: academies, institutions, curators, artists, collectors, critics? How do artists respond, and what changes are possible over time? Between them, the four participating speakers—David Garneau, Anthony Kiendl, Mary-Beth Laviolette and Anne Whitelaw—have a wide and diverse range of experience, from curatorial work (both institutional and independent), art historical and critical writing as well as artistic practice. All have been based in Western Canada for much of their careers, and they will provide insight into how geography and context can factor into these questions.

Featuring: Anne Whitelaw, David Garneau, Anthony Kiendl and Mary-Beth Laviolette
Moderated by Catherine Crowston, AGA Executive Director / Chief Curator
