Curator's Tour: Rebellious

Join Curator Lindsey Sharman on a tour of the new exhibition Rebellious: Alberta Women Artists in the 1980s. The 1980s were a tumultuous time in the province. Alberta women artists were making work that was playful, personal, political, independent and rebellious. This exhibition includes work by some of the most influential Alberta artists of the 1980s who continue to shape Canadian art.

You'll gain exciting insights into the artworks and Sharman's curatorial process. Meet us on November 30 on the second-floor landing, just outside the exhibition.
