THE CURVE : Community Art Installation

June 9, 2020 - September 28, 2020

Attention all Peace Country residents!  You can contribute your creative responses to the COVID-19 global health crisis in this special art exhibition, The Curve.

The Curve is a multi-disciplinary community art installation, exhibited through the summer of 2020 at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie. It will honour those in the Peace Region who passed, who served, and who lived through the largest public health pandemic in generations.

Share your voice and your experience over this unprecedented time in this unique community art exhibition. By inviting all residents of the Peace Region to share their unique creative responses to the COVID-19 public health pandemic, The Curve has the power to echo and connect all human experiences. It will continue to grow and evolve as more pieces are contributed to the overall exhibition.

NOTE: Deadline for submissions is August 16th, 2020. There are no restrictions on age or artistic ability, we want the whole community involved in this exhibition!

Our Traveling Exhibition Program, TREX is bringing the AFA exhibition Uncharted to The Curve.

Uncharted is a digital exhibition of artworks curated from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Collection in response to the novel coronavirus – COVID 19. ‘Novel’ meaning ‘new’ (and derived from the Latin word ‘novus’) is a word that aptly describes the times we have all been navigating these past few months, and that we move forward in.


Featured Artwork: (L-R) Harry Savage, ONE FOR SCIENCE, 1972, photo-silkscreen on paper

April Dean, ILL EQUIPPED & UNPREPARED, 2013, archival inkjet print on pictorico/clear film
