Since 1996, the Art Gallery of Alberta has presented the Alberta Biennial as a survey of contemporary art from across the province.
Future Station: 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art is an examination of the creative practices at work with Alberta artists and ultimately an expression on what it feels like to be an artist in Alberta. The title is derived from an abandoned transit platform located under the civic centre of the province's capital, Edmonton. The themes of the 2015 Biennial include: psychology as a creative methodology and means to audience effect, natural forces confronting the artist, detritus as a working material and austerity as an aesthetic.
Featuring 42 artists from across Alberta, including communities from Fort McMurray to Lethbridge, the 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art will be presented in three spaces of the Art Gallery of Alberta, Enterprise Square Galleries and will include off-site installations.
Future Station: 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art is curated by Kristy Trinier and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta.
The 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art will be presented by ATB Financial.
