The Department of Prints and Drawings
11 Jun 2016 – 19 Aug 2016
How can a small university art gallery, itself a department, oversee a “Department of Prints and Drawings”? The provocative title of this exhibition is meant to prompt skepticism about the medium-based categories that still define large public collections, such as those at the National Gallery of Canada.
Big in Nova Scotia
23 Aug 2014 – 28 Sep 2014
MSVU Art Gallery was built in 1971. Its two-storey height was designed for the preeminent art of that era; expansive paintings on the scale of American “field” painting, and sculpture conceived in Minimalist terms as spatial theatre. Forty-three years later, Big in Nova Scotia responds to the moment of the Gallery’s beginning with a selection of large works from the MSVU collection.

Steve Higgins: Artist in Residence
6 Mar 2013 – 19 Apr 2013
For nearly four decades, Steve Higgins’ architecturally inspired sculpture and graphic work has evoked post-industrial dystopias. As though exposing the inner contradictions of a dysfunctional society, his elaborate drawings include spatially incompatible illusions in compositions that Higgins describes as “corrupted from within.” The production residency at MSVU Art Gallery offers Higgins his first opportunity in 32 years to realize a room-sized, three-dimensional structure based on his charcoal drawings.
