Terrance Houle, Your Dreams Are Killing My Culture, 2009. Rear view mirrors and video. Purchased with funds from the Canada Council for the Arts New Chapter Grant Program.
The exhibition, LandMark, features new works by Alberta Indigenous artists: Brenda Draney, Tanya Harnett and Terrance Houle. For each of these artists, the land and landscape of their home territory in Alberta has provided inspiration for the creation of works that address time and ancestry, nature and the environment, community and story-telling. Working in painting, photography and video, the work of these 3 artists present the land, not as geography or vista, but as intimate and person places that are marked by lived experience.
LandMark is the second in a series of exhibitions supported by a Canada Council for the Arts “New Chapter” grant, that showcase new acquisitions to the AGA’s permanent collection of work by Indigenous, Métis and Inuit artists.
This is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts' New Chapter program. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation, and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
