We were very sad to hear of the passing of Cornelia Oberlander. The pioneering landscape architect lived to the amazing age of 99 and had a long and award-winning career in which she was still consulting on projects such as her current AGA exhibition, 'Genius Loci'. Her passion for fostering a deeper alignment with the natural environment and creating greener cities can be seen in some of her notable work including Ottawa's National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, Vancouver's Robson Square, Montreal's Expo 67. Our condolences to her family and friends.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/Saulteaux/Anishinaabe. We also acknowledge all of the Indigenous, Inuit and Métis peoples who make Alberta their home today.
