WordMark is the first in a series of four exhibitions that will feature works by contemporary First Nations, Inuit and Metis artists, newly acquired for the AGA’s permanent collection. It is through the creation and public exhibition of museum collections that histories of art are written and remembered, and this important initiative, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts “New Chapter” grant program, will ensure that works by significant contemporary artists are shared with the public and maintained as a lasting legacy for the future.
WordMark features work by Raymond Boisjoly, Bob Boyer, Dean Drever and Amy Malbeuf that engage with the complexity of visual communication, through the interweaving of language, image and symbolism.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. Presented by TD Bank Group.
