2020 Winter Exhibition - KATIE OHE

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019
KATIE OHE 25 January –  6 September, 2020 Esker Foundation is pleased to present an in-depth look at Katie Ohe’s sculptural practice and her unparalleled approach to material, form, space, and movement. This eponymous exhibition—her largest and most comprehensive solo exhibition to date—traces the development of work through six decades of Ohe’s remarkable sculptural practice. Over the years Katie Ohe has been a catalyzing force in Calgary’s art community as an artist, mentor, teacher, supporter, and builder. One of Alberta’s most important artistic figures, she has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary art in the province and her innovative approaches to material, form, movement, and participation have been a meaningful influence for generations.
