Prairie Star Deck Exhibit

Edmonton artist AJA Louden shifts his focus from painting to textiles to explore ideas grounded in Afrofuturism that consider the cyclical nature of power, inspired by science fiction and historical paintings. Louden was recently artist in residence at Fern's School of Craft where he turned his attention to creating large scale tapestries rich with his signature imagery. 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.
