Alexander Caldwell- Showing Works in Calgary

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

The Glenbow Museum: Alexander Caldwell's piece Thunderhead (2013) will be apart of Calgary's Glenbow Museums fifth and final installment of the groundbreaking survey of regional art, Made in Calgary: The 2000s reflecting the energy and diversity of the arts community in the first decade of the twenty-first century.

The exhibition explores the diverse approaches of artists creating in Calgary – both emerging and established -- Diane Bos, Chris Millar, Ron Moppett, George Webber, Dave&Jenn, Jackie Anderson, Mark Mullin, and many others are participating.

The extensive spectrum of their work demonstrates a fascination with both the physics and subjectivity of perception; the relationship between photography and computers; an immersion in pop culture; the presence of narrative (be it fantasy, fiction, memory, history or a blend), an abiding collage aesthetic; a scrappy do it yourself approach; and the redefinition of art and fine craft. The exhibition opens September 20, and will continue until December 14, 2014.
