About the Exhibition

As part of Glenbow's ongoing From Our Collections series, we are pleased to present Inscapes. This selection of contemporary art explores the idea of interior and imagined landscapes.

The artworks visualize inner landscape as a place imagined or remembered by an
artist. The term inscape is used in visual art to refer to stylistically diverse artworks that represent an artist's psyche as a kind of interior landscape. The works drawn from the Glenbow collection bring together a diversity of artistic practices on this theme, including installation, media, painting, sculpture, textile and conceptual art.

Featured are multimedia installations that offer immersive worlds to discover, such as
David Hoffos's Phase I: Parlour (golf), 2003, Scenes from The House Dream; and Graeme Patterson's Pothole from the Woodrow Series. The exhibition also includes works by John Brocke, Gordon Ferguson, Christopher Flodberg and Mary Scott. Come and discover the intense, profound and often playful world of an artist's mind.
