It’s All Happening so Fast Canadian Centre for Architecture


Through 9 April 2017
It‘s All Happening So Fast, A Counter-History of the Modern Canadian Environment
(Exhibition, Main galleries)

In an age of unprecedented human impact on the planet, certain countries stand out for their privileged positions and the complexity of their relationships with the land. Stories about Canada closely follow the discovery and appropriation of vast and varied natural resources as well as changing ideas of the proper relationship between people and their environment.

Curated by Mirko Zardini, and Louise Désy from the Curatorial team
With: Ian Wallace, Douglas Copeland, William Notman, Robert DelTredici, Robert Burley, among others

Le temps presse, une contre-histoire environnementale du Canada moderne
(Exposition, Salles principales)

À une époque où l’empreinte de l’homme sur la planète atteint un niveau inégalé, certains pays se distinguent par leur situation enviable et la complexité de leur relation au territoire. Les histoires entourant le Canada sont intimement liées à la découverte et à l’appropriation de ressources naturelles à la fois importantes et diversifiées, ainsi qu’à des points de vue changeants sur la relation entre les gens et leur environnement.

À travers des études de cas tirées des cinq dernières décennies d’intervention humaine dans le paysage canadien, Le temps presse explore les visions souvent conflictuelles et contradictoires que le Canada entretient avec ce que nous appelons l’« environnement naturel ».

Commissaire : Mirko Zardini, et Louise Désy, de l’ Équipe curatoriale
Avec: Ian Wallace, Douglas Copeland, William Notman, Robert DelTredici, Robert Burley, entre autres.

Flora and Fauna: 400 Years of Artists Inspired by Nature

At the National Gallery of Canada

Flora and Fauna looks at how painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors and craftspeople have been inspired by nature over the centuries. This is an exceptionally varied installation in terms of medium, scale and style. It includes drawings, prints, paintings, photographs, sculptures and ceramic works, ranging from the quiet and contemplative to the bold and the audacious. All the works except four are drawn from the collections of the National Gallery. Many great Canadian and international artists are represented, including Lorraine Gilbert, Aganetha and Richard Dyck, Geoffrey James, Bertram Brooker, David Milne, Lucian Freud, M.C. Escher, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Frederick Evans, Camille Corot, and Rembrandt.

(from the NGC press release)

Flora and Fauna in the Byward Market As of June, works by the renowned Ottawa-based landscape photographer and artist Lorraine Gilbert will be featured in the Byward Market. Her large format digital photographs, created through skilful montages of hundreds of images captured over several months, will be shown in the Beaux-Arts Court, at the corner of St. Patrick and Sussex between St. Patrick and Murray, and the Tin House Court, between Murray and Clarence.

Arbor vitea

Sharing an interest in the life of trees, and in their value as channels for the flow of visible and hidden energies, Lorraine Gilbert and Christopher Varady-Szabo present a collaboration where photographs of trees and tree-inspired photo-drawings inhabit the gallery and sometimes dialogue in the same pictorial space.

Interventions/Natural Motif: Lorraine Gilbert and Natasha Mazurka | Interventions/Sur le motif. Lorraine Gilbert et Natasha Mazurka

Both Lorraine Gilbert and Natasha Mazurka are contemporary local artists who engage with the landscape in a critical way, the former through photography and the latter through painting. They have been invited to choose works from the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art through which to draw inspiration for their own newly created work which will be displayed in a two-person exhibition.
