The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory and Region 4 of the Metis Nation of Alberta. We respect this as the traditional and contemporary  land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.

AGA100: Act 2 Landscape to Land Use

Get Tickets

To celebrate the Art Gallery of Alberta’s 100th anniversary, we have created a series of three exhibitions that showcase Alberta art and artists in the AGA’s Collection. Many of the works are rooted in conceptions of time: revealing the passage of time or snapshots of time; capturing subtle or dramatic changes over time; or exploring the eternal or ideas of timelessness. Themes of time—including duration, seasons, history, memory, generations, and the future—connect across these anniversary exhibitions.

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. The works range from cityscapes to landscapes and represent rural life, farming and extractive industries and mining.  Act II shows multiple views of Alberta from untouched and pristine to responsibly managed to irrevocably scarred and damaged.

The Collection includes over 6,000 works of art with new works acquired annually. Works in the Collection are also researched, reevaluated and recontextualized on an ongoing basis. The Collection is an ever-changing, living document that is reflective of shifting values and interests over time. The AGA’s Collection does not represent the totality of artistic production in Alberta but, because of its mutability, there is opportunity within its gaps. The Collection charts a trajectory to this point but can also direct us to where we want to be and where we will go. 

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Catherine Crowston, Lindsey Sharman and Danielle Siemens.
