Gwenessa Lam: What Magic

June 16 – September 9, 2018
Curated by Nancy Tousley
Organized by Glenbow

Using an image of a house fire found online on multiple websites as a starting point, Calgary artist Gwenessa Lam examines how meaning is made, lost and changed by the repetition and circulation of images on the web, and how the line between perceived and constructed reality is continually blurred.
