This is the first major exhibition to focus on the Canadian Group of Painters, its “look” and its legacy.

Some 40 works are featured, by artists including Caven Atkins, A.Y, Jackson, and L.L. Fitzgerald. A Vital Force is organized by Agnes Etherington Art Centre.

Through diverse artistic perspectives, Sympathetic Magic considers ideas of nationhood, culture, and the environment. The exhibition features text and photo-based works by Raymond Boisjoly, Adad Hannah, Ken Lum, and Kevin Schmidt. The exhibition title is derived from a term used by anthropologist James George Frazer in The Golden Bough, his 1890 treatise on magic and religion.

The Chamber is an installation by architect-turned-sculptor Ian Johnston, whose work raises questions about our relationship to material culture—or, more specifically, about our current culture’s voracious appetite for the consumption of material things. The Chamber—one part of a series of works titled, Reinventing Consumption—is an inflating and deflating piece which shrouds and reveals an enormous mass of household items diverted from waste stream in in Medicine Hat.

The Chamber is an installation by architect-turned-sculptor Ian Johnston, whose work raises questions about our relationship to material culture—or, more specifically, about our current culture’s voracious appetite for the consumption of material things. The Chamber—one part of a series of works titled, Reinventing Consumption—is an inflating and deflating piece which shrouds and reveals an enormous mass of household items diverted from waste stream in in Medicine Hat.
Reception: September 11, 6 – 8 pm Artist Talk: September 11, 12:30 – 1:20 pm Docent Talk: September 16 at 12:30 pm for Lifelong Learning Week
