The third in a series of four exhibitions featuring works by contemporary Indigenous, First Nations, Inuit and Metis artists, newly acquired for the AGA’s collection, StretchMark explores tension resulting from moments of rapid growth or change. These marks are physical manifestations which honour the difficulty of these processes. StretchMark: A New Chapter Acquisition Project is curated by Franchesca Hebert-Spence, AGA Adjunct Curator of Indigenous Art, and supported by a New Chapter grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. This initiative ensures that works by significant contemporary artists are shared and maintained for the future.
This is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation, and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
Ce Project est l’un des 200 projects exceptionnels soutenus par le programme Nouveau chapitre du Couseil des arts du Canada. Avec cet investissement 35 M$, le Conseil des arts appuie la création et le partage des arts au coeur de nos vies et dans l’ensemble de Canada.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. Curated by Franchesca Hebert-Spence. Presented by TD.
