In Canada, art making concerned with landscape is unavoidably tied to the narratives of place – local and nationalist, Indigenous and non-Indigenous. The thematic of the Canadian landscape in Canadian art, say, through the viewpoint of artists such as Lawren Harris and A.Y. Jackson, is an expansive and problematic subject matter that came to communicate the character of a wildly romanticized northern environment.
Please join the UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art & Theory (AHVA) at the AHVA Gallery in the Audain Art Centre on Thursday, September 22, at 5 pm for the opening of Untitled (Visual Art Faculty Show 2016) – an exhibition showcasing recent works by our studio faculty and adjunct professors.
