#AGAlive | Tour with a Queen: Exhibition Tour of Let’s Do the Time Warp Again by Harley Morman with Lourdes the Merry Virgin

This month our Community Tour series is getting an extra dose of Glitter wiith local Queen Lourdes the Merry Virgin, who will be serving a performance and tour of the exhibition Harley Morman: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again. This is a first for the AGA Community Tour Series, which invites a new speaker each month to lead a tour of a current exhibition, giving our audience a unique perspective on the artwork on display. On January 27th, we are offering free admission to the gallery from 4-7pm, so please come early to enjoy all the exhibitions on display.

Harley Morman’s Let’s Do the Time Warp Again uses lenticular images to consider time and repetition. You may be familiar with these retro ‘animations’ in which two related images are combined and seem to come alive when you change perspective or position. Lenticulars were used on toys, bookmarks, and might have been found on any number of things in a Scholastic book fair. By using Lenticulars in his artworks, Morman presents images that transform as you move around the exhibition space, showing how a change in perspective can completely alter what and how you see.

You can participate in this program both in-person and online by watching our Zoom livestream. Registration is encouraged for guests attending in person; due to the space limitations. The livestream of the artist talk is free and will require advance registration as well. 

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Lindsey Sharman. The RBC New Works Gallery features new artworks by Alberta artists and continues the Art Gallery of Alberta’s tradition of supporting and promoting Alberta artists. 

#AGAlive is made possible by EPCOR and Canada Council for the Arts.
