Exhibition: PETER VON TIESENHAUSEN: SONGS FOR PYTHAGORAS
Curatorial Notes: For Peter von Tiesenhausen, the landscape of Alberta has been a primary source of inspiration, with sustainability being a constant thread that has woven its way through his work over the course of his long career. Most often working with natural materials such as wood, ice and the land itself, von Tiesenhausen has also incorporated discarded industrial materials such as wire cabling, glass and metal sheeting into his work. Addressing ideas of time, life, nature and re-generation, this new exhibition will engage audiences with important issues related to extraction, production and our impact on the environment. These concerns have influenced von Tiesenhausen’s approach to art and art-making. His work is both process-based and experimental with the final outcome not always known at the outset. For this new exhibition, the artist has been invited to reimagine the architecture of the AGA’s third floor gallery space, constructing an environment that will effectively transport the viewer out of the familiar and into an immersive environment of both sight and sound. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta. Curated by Catherine Crowston. Supported by Artist Patrons Dell Pohlman & Lauren Raymore Pohlman. (Source: AGA website, January 2018)

Exhibition: JANE KIDD: CURIOUS
Curatorial Notes: Jane Kidd’s hand-woven tapestries are masterful technical and conceptual explorations. Interlacing threads by hand, without the assistance of mechanization, is time-consuming and ponderous, yet the directness and the freedom afforded by working this way allow Kidd to imbue the woven imagery with her energy and vitality. Her tapestries buzz with curiosity and urgency as she creates images that reference environmental manipulations: genetic modification of seeds, deforestation, hybridization. The exhibition invites reflection on real and imagined human engineering of the natural order. Curious presents four series of work: Land Sentence (2009-2012), Curiosities (2013-2016), Wonderland (2014-2016), and Phenomena (2017-2018). The Phenomena series will make its debut at the Textile Museum of Canada. “I’m constantly looking back at the history of textiles for links that will connect my work to that history.” -Jane Kidd Curious bring Jane Kidd’s work into conversation with the Textile Museum of Canada’s global collection of tapestry. The artist has selected objects from the Museum’s collection that artfully illustrate individual and cultural ingenuity in the techniques of tapestry weaving. Selections include Coptic fragments made in Egypt from 200-800 AD, examples of Peruvian tapestry dating from 700-1550 AD, 19th century Chinese silk slit tapestry, and a stunning Mexican sarape which was brought into the collection in 2017 and will be displayed here for the first time. The artist’s voice will feature prominently in the exhibition, reflecting on the ways in which her contemporary practice connects to the style, technology and innovation found in the ancient art of tapestry.
