Checking out our #exhibitions before the holidays? Be sure to head over to the #Mississauga Central #Library to see UNMASKED, an AGM Satellite Exhibition featuring works by ELLA COOPER, JAMES MICHAEL YEBOAH, JEFF BIERK & TAU LEWIS . Curated by Laura Carusi. . November 7, 2017 – January 15, 2018. . The contemporary #artists presented within this #exhibition have responded to selected works held within the AGM’s Permanent #Collection, and work to reclaim agency over their #representations. They aim to expand upon and #subvert a #dialogue that was so rigidly enforced and perpetuated by problematic historical images, #aesthetics and #politics. . For over a century people of colour, and the #cultural objects they have created, have been positioned as a tool by western artists to convey a more “simple” and “pure” #culture. These peoples and their aesthetics have been romanticized and even fetishized in an attempt to indicate an idealized independence from the problems that plagued “civilized societies” — while their own #cultures were being annihilated under European #colonialism. . The aesthetic of #art produced within colonized nations has been and continues to be appropriated and misrepresented to further these ideas — bringing great wealth and status to artists and institutions who did so, while the works of Black artists have historically been plundered and relegated to the vitrines of natural history museums. Even in #Canada, the #history of collections and collecting practices is fraught with violence and erasure. . This exhibition aims to bring to light the fact that not only do these attitudes still persist, they are maintained literally and symbolically within #galleries and #museums. The AGM commits to unmasking these harmful and persistent #ideologies, and to highlighting alternative voices in order to actively #decolonize the Permanent Art Collection. . .

#featurefriday: David Salazar's Chick, 2007, cast bronze, 3 x 3 x 4 inches • David Salazar is a Toronto-based sculptor who holds a Master in Fine Arts from OCAD University. Salazar explores the borders between necessity and excess, desires and addiction.

2017 was a tough year for public art in Calgary. With that in mind, in her 2017 Critic's Picks Akimblogger Lindsay Sorell ballin420_sorell suggests that "we need fewer sculptures of shapeless blobs and white dudes riding stallions, and more help from the thriving and diverse community of actual artists and writers who are a part of this city.” Read it at akimbo.ca/akimblog ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image: New York artist Del Geist’s The Bowfort Towers installed along the Trans Canada Highway elicited immediate criticism from the Indigenous community ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #akimblog #criticspicks #artreview #contemporaryart #calgary #artcritic #yycart #cdnart #canadianart #publicart #sculpture

#featurefriday: Rene Pierre Allain's Open Warp No. 1, 1996, steel, gun blue, clear sealer, 60 x 74 x 6 inches • Working between painting and sculpture, Rene Pierre Allain transforms the colour, shape and pattern of metal surfaces using chemicals, acids, and the flame from a torch. In these 'metal paintings,' traces of the artist's hand are never absent. Instead, Allain foregrounds the artistry involved in their production. Playing with tensions between the fluidity and rigidity of steel, Allain's constructions demonstrate both the poetic and architectural possibilities of this medium. • • • #feature #featurefridays rpallain #renepierreallain #steel #metal #sculpture #sculptural #artdaily #instaart #artstagram #art #canadianart #cdnart #art #artwork #kunst #kunstwerk #artgallery #lonsdale #gallery #lonsdalegallery

First Snow, Algoma (1919/20) by A. Y. Jackson was one of the first pieces in the McMichael's collection, and still a favourite today. At first glance it's the reds that seem most striking, but looking closer it's the distant blues of those mountains that linger with me. Up now. #artofcanada #oilpainting #cdnart #groupofseven #painting #snow #algoma #firstsnow

Joan Kaufman is a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist whose practice is based in sculpture, photography, video and sound composition. Her work encompasses photographic, filmic, and video constructs that probe the human condition and its relationship to the natural world. By capturing and deconstructing aspects of nature she explores ambiguity – the flux between physical and psychological spaces. • Joan's solo exhibition Surface Tension II is on now at the gallery!
