Space Fiction & the Archives

Travel back in time with Montreal artist Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen to the town of St. Paul, Alberta in 1967—the year of Canada’s Centennial, when the country revealed projects that illustrated its culture and history. This exhibition centres on the representation around the first “UFO Landing Pad” built in St. Paul, with themes of belonging and coexistence.

Out There

This exhibition by Patrick Dunford will feature a series of contemporary Canadian landscape paintings and drawings that offer the perspective of growing up on the prairies and working in the hinterland. Quirky scenes of barren settings lusciously painted ask the viewer to engage Dunford’s narrative that is peacefully observant of these places that most of us never see or have forgotten. This is Dunford’s first exhibition in Calgary.

Open Source

Saskatchewan abstract painter Jonathan Forrest’s solo exhibition recreates the notion of modern prairie painting with his multi-layered works and bold colours on acrylic.

Wild Men

Expressionism and pop art combine with post painterly abstraction and hard-edge painting in cartoons, clip art, landscapes and still lifes by Saskatoon-based artist Jeff Nachtigall.

Roulette

Canadian artist Kyle Beal has created an interactive installation of ‘hallway’ or ‘doorway roulette,’ where the literal space approaches alienation in a comedic fashion.
