“The Poetics of Space” opens at the Kamloops Art Gallery

Featuring artworks by over 30 artists

Kamloops Art Gallery will launch the group show The Poetics of Space on April 14, 2018. On display until June 30, 2018, the exhibition features artworks by over 30 artists, historic and contemporary, from Canada and abroad. Divided into three sections, the show explores the multitude of ways artists have contemplated and grappled with the idea of space–from memory and embodiment, to its physical or geographic boundaries, and finally its optical perspectives.

The Poetics of Space is organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Daina Augaitis, chief curator emerita, and Emmy Lee Wall, assistant curator. Featured artists include Bertram Brooker, Emily Carr, Annie Pootoogook, Lawren Harris, Scott McFarland and Dennis A. Oppenheim, among others.

Bertram Brooker, Alleluia, 1929, oil on canvas, 122.2 x 121.9 cm, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa.
