Roy Caussy: The King is Dead…

This exhibition is both a sympathetic and celebratory mourning of the fading power and influence of Baby boomers. Roy Caussy examines some of this generation’s legacies like the creation of systems that now dictate most aspects of our lives, including those within the music industry that determine how the next pop hit is manufactured. Caussy is interested in how this generation has moved –as Joni Mitchell puts it– from Hippy to yippy, to Boomer yuppie. Through ceramics, installation and drawing, this exhibition examines how flower children became champions of privatization and capitalism. 

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. 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.
