Come down to the CAG to check out our new street front window display!
Since it was established in 1971, the CAG has exhibited the work of almost one thousand artists. In recognition of our 40th anniversary, we wanted to make this history visible by displaying the names of the artists who have contributed to our exhibition programming.
The impressive list includes local heroes such as Jeff Wall, Liz Magor, Ken Lum and Stan Douglas as well as the names of rising stars like Holly Ward, who currently has a banner of her own hanging in front of the CBC building, and Stephen Shearer who is representing Canada at the Venice Biennial.
Putting the list together was a big job that involved scouring the archive. We think we got everyone, but let us know if you think a name is missing.
We would like to thank our volunteers Ksenia Cheinman and Kitsum Cheung for their work on this project.
