In his new work, Louden examines the roles of craft in Black communities and the history of craft in rural Alberta in particular.
Dwayne Martineau: Boreal Fortress

Dwayne Martineau: Boreal Fortress

March 2, 2024 - August 4, 2024    
11:00 am
Boreal Fortress uses images of trees, bark, weeds and detritus from our aspen parkland ecosystem that are made uncanny through mirroring techniques. This installation towers above Main Hall and its massive scale is designed to make the images of trees feel strange yet familiar. This cluster of trees suggests a secret passageway or a swirling vortex. However, this is an illusionistic fictional entryway into an elusive space that cannot be entered. This fortress gives a feeling of discovery but confronts viewers with a space they cannot enter and forces you to think about what we can and cannot access. Boreal Fortress evokes a sense of ancient connection to environmental knowledge that lays beyond the conscious mind.

Damian Moppett: Untitled Abstract Drawing in Space

Damian Moppett: Untitled Abstract Drawing in Space

March 17, 2020 - December 31, 2024    
11:00 am
The Art Gallery of Alberta commissioned Canadian artist Damian Moppett to create an installation for long-term display in the AGA Atrium. This work is intended to be a scaled-up sketch that occupies the space in the AGA's atrium as if it was drawn in the air. Shapes and lines are fabricated out of cut aluminum plate, which have been arranged and painted to recreate a 'fast' artistic abstract drawing. Moppett's recent large-scale public sculptures have all been centered around the idea of making a relatively 'quick' drawing or painting into a large three-dimensional sculpture while still trying to convey the immediate graphic simplicity of the original drawing or painting. This work will maintain the qualities of a sketch with drawing materials and blow them up to architectural or larger-than-life scale.
