Made In Calgary: The 2000s

Organized by Glenbow
Curated by Katherine Ylitalo

The fifth and final installment in Glenbow's groundbreaking survey of regional art, Made in Calgary: The 2000s reflects the energy and diversity of the arts community in the first decade of the twenty-first century.

The exhibition explores the diverse approaches of artists creating in Calgary - both emerging and established -- such as Dianne Bos, Chris Millar, Ron Moppett, George Webber, Dave&Jenn, Jackie Anderson, Alex Caldwell, Mark Mullin, and many others.

The extensive spectrum of their work demonstrates a fascination with both the physics and subjectivity of perception; the relationship between photography and computers; an immersion in pop culture; the presence of narrative (be it fantasy, fiction, memory, history or a blend), an abiding collage aesthetic; a scrappy do it yourself approach; and the redefinition of art and fine craft.

Expect an exhibition that reflects the not-yet-defined, freewheeling nature of contemporary art in Calgary. The artists whose work is in this decade's exhibition are selected for their outstanding art, but also as representatives of the larger art community in Calgary that is remarkably exciting and vibrant.

The Made in Calgary exhibition continues at Nickle Galleries at the University of Calgary, with a particular focus on community. The work on view at Nickle Galleries highlights the often playful relationships and collaborations between Calgary artists.
