Without End:Exploring the Lines that Keep Us Apart

September 18, 2009 - September 27, 2009

Curated by Todd Schaber with the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie and Catherine Hamel with the University of Calgary

Opening Reception: Friday, September 18, 2009 at 7:00 pm  

Location: The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie

“Without End” has two areas of exploration. The first area examines the tools of architectural representation. The second area studies its subject, embodied politics through the experience of marginalized groups and their creative appropriation of space. The final works proposed will remain in flux for as long as possible, revealing their process and by doing so, the artists hope to express how critical it is to study the evolution and development of an idea or question. In this project, drawing is a tool that has both allowed a diverse group to explore social issues, and then share that knowledge with a wider audience. This exhibit occupies large canvas spaces, upon which all of the contributing artists have worked in collaboration, developing ideas and questions as a collective.

“Without End” is the communal work of Calgary artists/architectural graduate students: Kristofer Kelly, Ryan Paliproda, Carmen Hull, Jordan Allen, Kate Anderson, and Katie Pearce. Included will be six large canvases with the largest being 5 feet high by 10 feet wide and three small canvases. Each canvas will be started by the artists and finished by the groups in the receiving venues, allowing the viewers to interactively appropriate space within the exhibit. The canvases will travel unframed and ready to hang like quilts at each venue.
