Getting naked - THEMUSEUM, Kitchener ON

MARIO DOUCETTE, 1755 (la chasse aux anges), 2007
Opens March 7

The Canadian Council Art Bank has been collecting work by the best Canadian artists of our time for over forty years, becoming the world's largest collector of contemporary Canadian art. The Art Bank shares its collection through art rental and outreach programs which sees approximately 3,000 works on display at various locations each year. But rarely are the works that depict subjects who are naked, nude, or unclothed exhibited, pieces which make up a large percentage of their collection.

THEMUSEUM is displaying almost a hundred of these works that range in date, media, subject and styles. The exhibit encourages the audience to explore themes that will differentiate the pieces from those conventionally considered objectifying, pornographic or controversial. It is designed to educate, entertain and give viewers an engaging experience to explore contemporary Canadian art that the country has been so reluctant to publicly display.These unique works will challenge perceptions, create discussion and ultimately determine : do you GET Naked?

Oh, Canada - Glenbow Museum, Calgary AB


Oh, Canada: Contemporary Art from North North America

JANUARY 31 - APRIL 26 2015

Organized by MASS MoCA, Curated by Denise Markonish

This exhibition is vast in scope and size - so big that no one gallery space in Calgary is large enough to host all of it. Glenbow is proud to partner with Esker Foundation, Illongworth Kerr Gallery and Nickle Galleries to bring the epic Oh, Canada: Contemporary Art from North North America to Calgary.

Oh, Canada is the creation of American curator Denise Markonish and is the largest survey of contemporary Canadian art ever produced outside the country. The artists she selected explore ideas that could inhabit the heart of any Canadian. There are works that explore landscape and its powerful hold on the Canadian psyche; dread and bravery in the exploration of the uncanny; Aboriginal identity and the on-going effects of colonialism; traditions of storytelling; the idea of the North; the Canadian cultural mosaic; a return to craft and more.

Glenbow's installation features artists from every corner of the country: Nunavut's Shuvinai Ashoona and Annie Pootogook, British Columbia's Douglas Coupland, Saskatchewan's Wally Dion, Manitoba's Divya Mehra, Ontario's Shary Boyle, Quebec's Patrick Bernatchez, New Brunswick's Mario Doucette and Albertans Terrance Houle and Eric Cameron, to name just a few.
