From Franklin Carmichael’s Snow Clouds (1927) to Annie Pootoogook’s Hunter Mimic Seal (2006), this student-led exhibit presents museum-quality reproductions of iconic Canadian artworks.
Shifting Ground Lines gathers these diverse approaches to the Canadian landscape and poses questions about the nature of landscape. Is it “out there?” or specific to individual experiences? What is a landscape? Are some landscapes more “Canadian” than others? What is contained within the land, what lies beneath it, and beyond it?
These queries and more will be addressed by curator Brandon Coombs in a talk on September 26, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.. The exhibition’s entire production team of Coombs, Beatrice Hammond, Sienna Suji Kim, Kyle West, and Jennifer Yacula will be on hand to further the conversation at the closing reception on October 19, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.
Presented in partnership with School of the Arts.
