#agaanotherLandscapeshow

another Landscape show redefines the standard collection exhibition through a collaborative curatorial approach. The four newly-appointed curators bring their unique points of view and practice to examine and question the dominance of landscape within the Art Gallery of Alberta’s collection. Adjunct Curator of Design, Amery Calvelli; Adjunct Curator of Indigenous Art, Jessie Ray Short; Curator Lindsey Sharman; and Adjunct Curator of Indigenous Art, Franchesca Hebert-Spence have selected the works in another Landscape show from the Art Gallery of Alberta’s landscape-laden collection. Utilizing humour, fantasy, and juxtaposition, the curators address questions such as: What is the role of images of the land in the colonization of Canada and North America? What is the difference between land and landscape? What narratives do landscapes advance in our collective memory? When during development does landscape cease and likewise how is landscape recreated on once-settled land? Who is connected to the land and who is a visitor?

another Landscape show simultaneously shifts and critiques landscape’s place in Canadian art and popular discourse.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. Curated by Amery Calvelli, Franchesca Hebert-Spence, Lindsey Sharman and Jessie Ray Short.
