The Art of Canada: Director’s Cut

Ian Dejardin, Executive Director of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, is delving deep into the gallery’s vaults to make a very personal selection of works of art for his first curated show since taking the reins of the gallery. Dejardin promises many classic favourites, but also some that have been rarely seen, and some that might surprise even an audience familiar with Canadian art. This exhibition will showcase the beauty, diversity, and artistry of the art of Canada.

...Everything Remains Raw is a photographic exploration of the resilience of hip hop culture and asks why this supposed ‘fad’ has not faded away? Archival photographs, as visual representations of hip hop culture in Canada, guides this exhibition’s exploration on the evolution and longevity of this now global cultural phenomenon.

Photographic works from Michael Chambers, Sheinina Raj, Demuth Flake, Nabil Shash, Patrick Nichols, and Stella Fakiyesi capture the growth of the hip hop scene, as well as the voice, creativity and influence of these artists.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Works from the McMichael collection to celebrate the art and science of J.E.H. MacDonald’s artistic practice. McMichael conservator, Alison Douglas, will share the research results from a Canadian Conservation Institute study that created a base line for ‘what makes a MacDonald painting?’ Complete with microscopic photographs, the materials and methods of the artist will be explored in depth, especially in relation to the artist’s predilection for small studies.

November 2018

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

November 10, 2018 - February 18, 2019

Stephen Andrews: Frames of War

Consciously coinciding with the David Milne exhibition and the centenary of the armistice, this exhibition will focus on surveying Stephen Andrews’ works that deal with images of war, prisoners of war, and the way in which we experience such imagery through the media. Andrews’ works, which are largely pencil crayon on paper, subtly interpret the omissions and misinterpretations of war imagery. A large component of the exhibition will feature the artist’s work from about 2003 through 2006, which deal primarily with the Iraq War. Another component of the show will display his most recent work, which grapples with Vimy Ridge. Just like Milne, Andrews’ war imagery focuses on the aftermath. Not incidentally, Andrews has been a long-time admirer of the work of David Milne.
