Open for the European Night of the Museums, Saturday, May 17, 6 a.m.–2 a.m.
A major exhibition on the conceptual art that developed in Canada, from the eastern tip to the western tip via the Arctic Circle, between 1960 and 1980, “Get Hold of This Space” is a fresh new look at the diversity of contemporary art in Canada as well as at the various centres and out-of-the-way places where it was made.
This second part of the exhibition explores the political, cultural and social dimensions of the geographical distance specific to Canada. The artists were led to explore new forms of communication and transmission in order to go beyond the internal borders of the country, prefiguring the connectivity and current proliferation of globalized networks.
This exhibition includes the works and archival documents of David Askevold, Wallace Brannen, Daniel Buren, Melvin Charney, Greg Curnoe, Jean-Marie Delavalle, Christos Dikeakos, Dean Ellis, John Greer, General Idea, Rodney Graham, Image Bank, Carole Itter, Richards Jarden, Bill Jones, Robert Kleyn, Gordon Lebredt, Glenn Lewis, Ken Lum, Allan Harding MacKay, Ian Murray, N.E Thing Co., Dennis Oppenheim, Harold Pearse, Michael Snow, Françoise Sullivan, Bill Vazan, Jeff Wall, Ian Wallace, Theodore Wan, Paul Woodrow, and Tim Zuck.
