Exhibitions

Project 35

September 7, 2012 – January 5, 2013

Project 35 is an evolving exhibition of video works selected by 35 international curators, each of whom has chosen a work s/he considers vital for contemporary art audiences across the globe. Project 35 draws from ICI’s extensive network of curators to trace a complexity of regional and global connections among practitioners from places as varied as Colombia, the Congo, and the Philippines, as well as to demonstrate the extent to which video is now one of the most important and far-reaching mediums for contemporary artists.

Landon Mackenzie: Nervous Centre

September 7, 2012 – January 5, 2013

Esker Foundation’s first solo exhibition, Landon Mackenzie: Nervous Centre presents a compelling survey of Mackenzie’s work from 1993 to 2012. It highlights the artist’s abstracted study of cartography to map out human systems of movement, thought, and convergence. The exhibition presents rarely seen drawings, a selection of her “suitcase paintings”, and several of her better-known, large-scale cinematic canvases.

The New Alberta Contemporaries

June 15 – August 29, 2012

Guest curated by Caterina Pizanias

The New Alberta Contemporaries is the inaugural exhibition for the Esker Foundation. One of its primary objectives is to celebrate the creative potential of recent fine arts graduates from all the degree granting institutions across Alberta. The 47 artists were chosen for the ability with which their practice moves across disciplines in the emerging post-disciplinary and post studio age.
