Located within exhibition spaces, Conversation with the Artist features informal and engaging talks between the artist, curator and audience.
Initiated in the fall of 2011, the Manning Hall commission series is a new, ongoing project that provides unique opportunities for the AGA to support the creation and exhibition of new, site-specific works by Alberta artists. The second project in this series, MARK CLINTBERG: Behind this lies my true desire for you, will open to the public on Saturday, July 14.
Mark Clintberg is an Edmonton-born and Montreal-based artist, art historian, and curator. He is currently a Ph.D. student in the Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Art History at Concordia University, where he is also a part-time faculty member. He earned his M.A. at Concordia University (2008), and his B.F.A. from the Alberta College of Art & Design (2001), and has completed coursework and research at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (2000) and the University of Oxford (2011) respectively. Public and private collections across Canada and in the United States, including the National Gallery of Canada, have acquired his work.
