Join us for a conversation with Alana Bartol, Bryce Krynski and Lindsey Sharman. This program will feature a lively conversation between the artists and curator of the exhibition all roses sleep (inviolate light), as they explore the work in the exhibition, discussing the themes and ideas present in the artwork.
all roses sleep (inviolate light) includes an olfactory video that blends how bees and humans experience and use the land around us. Shot using ultraviolet video, visitors are invited to see the prairie landscape from a bee’s point of view. A scratch and sniff card expands on the pleasant and pungent experience of pumpjacks, grazing cattle, prairie grasses and wildflowers. As the solitary bee searches and dreams of a rose, the work is meant to conjure questions about our shared future.
This program is co-presented with MacEwan University. You can participate in this hour-long program in-person at the AGA. At the end of this program, we will reserve time for an audience Q&A. Registration in advance is recommended due to space limitations.
Alana Bartol and Bryce Krynski: all roses sleep (inviolate light) is 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.
