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.
Double Take
21 May 2016 – 19 Aug 2016
A routine glance at a work of art sometimes leads to a double take—a delayed reaction to a surprising detail after the initial failure to notice anything unusual. Selected from the permanent collection, the works in Double Take either are ‘assisted readymades’ (modified found objects) or, as ‘replicas,’ they resemble assisted readymades. The second or third glance generally prompts second thoughts.
