About the Exhibitions:

AGA100: Act 2 Earth to Eternity shows a range of work that spans the spectrum of representation of the natural world, from the earthbound and every day to the sublime.  Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Catherine Crowston, Lindsey Sharman and Danielle Siemens. 

AGA100: Act 2 Landscape to Land Use shows a diverse range of interactions with the natural world, and shows how Albertans live on, with, and take from the land over time. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Catherine Crowston, Lindsey Sharman and Danielle Siemens.

August Klintberg: Love Empire creates a space for public proclamations of love, admiration, passion and emotion. This interactive installation was originally commissioned as part of the Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art 2005, and later acquired by the National Gallery of Canada in 2007. 

Dwayne Martineau: Boreal Fortress features surreal images of a cluster of trees from our aspen parkland ecosystem that suggests a secret passageway into another world. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Lindsey Sharman.  Presented by the Capital Power Indigenous Art Fund. 

Aïda Muluneh and Meryl McMaster: Ebb and Flow explores water in its literal form, the manipulation of water as tool of colonial violence, water as matrilineal connector and water as earth forming geological force and keeper of geologic time. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Lindsey Sharman.  

Boyd Dymchuk and Aaron Harvey: Wavy Dimension is an alternate reality created by Aaron Harvey and Boyd Dymchuk that is filled with waves of joy, love and imagination.
