In late 2015, curators Peta Rake and Kristy Trinier travelled extensively across Alberta for studio visits. Then, in summer 2016 they invited artists to collaborative workshops in Banff. This informed the title for the time being: what it means to be in between spaces and times.
Technology meets pop art in this exhibition featuring Andy Warhol's celebrated 1984 print Wayne Gretzky 99. See it in several galleries across the country at the same time via live video feed from each venue, and consider both the pervasive nature of The Great One's image in Canadian culture, and the mass reproduction of celebrity images central to Warhol's practice.
This exhibition presents over 120 works of art that act as markers for important moments in Canada's history. Not depictions or documents of specific people or events, the works show how artists interpret and represent the world and how their ideas and images can hold meaning in new contexts.
The first RBC Work Room project of 2017 has artists Zachary Ayotte and Nulle Part working in residence for a creative development period of six weeks, producing a final work in the space that will remain on view for the duration of the exhibition. Their project is entitled Shelter.
From its library of press photographs, The Globe and Mail donated 25,000 prints to the newly formed Canadian Photography Institute at the National Gallery of Canada.
