The Art of Reflection, an exhibition emblematic of the times, is on display early 2021. In our current global state, reflection is key to progress, as we cannot positively move forward without meaningfully addressing our past. This body of work, created by various Black artists within the greater Edmonton region, looks at our understanding of self through careful deliberation. Each artist will illustrate their own interpretations of how reflection affects their sense of self and vision, with sub-themes including passion and freedom embedded throughout. The result will be a mixed-media art showcase that encourages viewers to reflect on their own experiences, and move forward with their insights.
This exhibition is curated by Africa Centre's YEGTheComeUp program, and will be featured in the Art Gallery of Alberta's Community Gallery from February 4 to April 11, 2021. Please note, the opening will be delayed due to current COVID-19 requirements and subsequent AGA closure.
