"Sam Day Chief, Stand Off, Blood Reserve"
George Webber, "Sam Day Chief, Stand Off, Blood Reserve," 1997.
Guest curator Nancy Tousley brings the twentieth century to a close in the fourth installment of Glenbow’s Made in Calgary series.
Notions of what defined art in the 1990s quite literally expanded as large-scale installations and multi-faceted paintings and sculptures dominated the physical space of galleries and museums. Artists rejected any set school or movement and adventurously experimented with many different media.
Through the work of notable Calgary artists such as Rita McKeough, Chris Cran, John Will, Faye HeavyShield and Alan Dunning, Made in Calgary: The 1990s reflects this exciting time which saw local artists redefining their own art and Calgary’s place in the global art scene.
