Oh, Canada Opening

Saturday, May 26, 2012, 6:00 pm
Galleries
Free for members, $10 for not yet members

To assemble Oh, Canada, curator Denise Markonish visited nearly every province and territory in Canada, on a journey that was as much about looking at art as it was about getting to the heart of place. In her travels (and nearly 400 studio visits) Markonish discovered a rich, deep, and fascinating art scene that is little known outside of Canada. Oh, Canada showcases the vast expanse of art made in the country, spanning all media and crossing generations and geography, while also acknowledging that this is one curator’s view and by no means an attempt to present the comprehensive picture of Canadian art. Instead, Oh, Canada focuses mostly on artists less recognized outside of Canada, providing a new glimpse at Canada’s cultural production.

Be the first to see this massive survey, the first of its kind by an American museum in decades. We'll be welcoming many of the artists (there are 62 represented in the show) and we'll be joined by many new friends from the north.

After the reception grab some dinner in town or on campus then come back at 9 for a dance party with DJ Brendan Canning -- co-founder of the Toronto based indie rock supergroup Broken Social Scene and a stalwart on that city’s DJ circuit for more than a decade. Canning trucks down from Toronto with a few crates of records in tow for an all-vinyl dance party to kick off the opening of Oh, Canada. Tickets for the dance party are sold separately and are $15. If you're a member please contact Rebecca Wehry to reserve for the reception. If not, please think about joining, we'd love to have you!
