Winter 2013 Exhibitions
Made in Calgary: The 1960s
This exhibition is the first in a five-part series presenting work by artists who lived, worked and practiced in Calgary over a fifty year period. This first installment, curated by Mary-Beth Laviolette, will feature works from Glenbow's collection as well as regional institutional loans and private loans.
This exhibition will reflect the individual contributions of the artists, but also thematically address the concerns these artists addressed in their work, how they worked and how much they reflected on present day issues. Visitors will also gain an appreciation of the uniqueness of the Calgary visual arts community and how these artists have contributed to the visual arts in our region and nationally. Importantly this exhibition will increase appreciation, awareness and understanding of visual arts produced in Calgary among Calgarians.
Glenbow is raising support for Made in Calgary: The 1960s through corporate sponsorships of $5000 or more and individual contributions of $1000 or more through our Friends of Calgary Artists initiative.
No Roads Here: Corb Lund's Alberta
Corb Lund is Glenbow's artist in residence for 2012-13. As part of his residency, we will be producing an exhibition that connects an anthology of his music (songs tied to Alberta, Alberta history and Corb's family history) to Glenbow's collection. Eight songs, selected from five albums, will be presented in the space with artifacts from Glenbow's cultural history, art, library and archives collections alongside some of Corb's historical family possessions.
Glenbow is raising support for No Roads Here: Corb Lund's Alberta through corporate sponsorships of $5000 or more and individual contributions of $1000 or more through our Friends of Corb Lund initiative. All contributors to this exhibition will be invited to an Opening Reception with Corb Lund on January 26 and will receive two tickets to his performance at Glenbow on March 2.
Fred Herzog: Street Photography
Curated from the collection of the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography and organized by the National Gallery of Canada, this exhibition presents approximately 30 photographs by Vancouver photographer Fred Herzog. These images captured during the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, depict Vancouver as well as Victoria, San Francisco, and Banff.
Born in Germany, Fred Herzog came to Vancouver in 1953. Since that time, he has produced a substantial body of photographs, taking urban life in Vancouver - second-hand shops, vacant lots, neon signage and the crowds of people who have populated the city's streets over the past fifty years-as his primary subject. Within his images, bodily gesture, the detritus of consumer culture and the architecture of the street take on a heightened resonance, as the impact of modernity becomes visible in the everyday life of the city.
Glenbow is raising support for Fred Herzog: Street Photography through corporate sponsorships of $5000 or more and individual contributions of $1000 or more through our Friends of Fred Herzog initiative.
As a corporate sponsor or contributor to one of Glenbow's Friends of initiatives, you will have the opportunity to meet some of the artists and participate in a special event in conjunction with the exhibition you are supporting. Details of these events will be announced in mid-January.
