On Location: Artists Explore a Sense of Place

Glenbow Museum
Calgary, AB

Glenbow’s collection of modernist and contemporary art provides the source material for an expansive exploration of different kinds of places, both remote and lived in; pristine and altered. A classic Canadian vista by Lawren Harris is juxtaposed with Eleanor Bond’s abstracted cityscape, Edward Burtynsky’s photographic study of the Carrara marble quarry and a sculptural work by Faye Heavyshield which encompasses the land itself as material for its construction. On Location features a fascinating range of artists including Tanya Harnett, Jeff Thomas, Vikki Alexander, Maxwell Bates, Ron Moppett and more.
