February 1 – April 26, 2015

Opening reception: Saturday, January 31, 6-10pm

Oh, Canada: Contemporary Art from North North America, organized by the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), is the largest survey of contemporary Canadian art ever produced outside Canada. Comprising of more than 100 artworks by 62 artists and collectives from across the country, Oh, Canada is huge in both scale and scope. Too big for just one gallery, the exhibition will be presented at Esker Foundation, Nickle Galleries, Illingworth Kerr Gallery, and Glenbow. This unique collaboration will encourage dialogue, debate, and a deeper understanding of local, regional, and national contemporary practice.

Artists featured at Esker Foundation include: Kim Adams, Nicholas Baier, Dean Baldwin, BGL, Valérie Blass, Bill Burns, Michel de Broin, Marcel Dzama, Brendan Fernandes, Michael Fernandes, Hadley + Maxwell, Diane Landry, Craig Leonard, Micah Lexier, Luanne Martineau, Rita McKeough, Graeme Patterson, Joseph Tisiga, Hans Wendt, John Will.

Oh, Canada is curated by Denise Markonish and organized by MASS MoCA. The exhibition is supported by TD Bank and the Canada Council for the Arts.
