OPENING TODAY at 12 noon! The environment is a key issue in today’s society, and water is the vital component that sustains life on the planet. Artists have used water as a medium to create works of art, investigated its special properties (liquidity, transparency, movement, reflection), interrogated its role in the spiritual and psychological aspects of our lives, and advocated for the preservation of clean water. Through works in a variety of media, Water Works aims to explore how we view and interact with water, and raises awareness of the importance of conserving clean water for future generations. Presented by @rbc . . .
Organized according to three themes: Water and Identity; Human Intervention in the Environment; and the Poetics of Water, the exhibition presents both historical and contemporary work by the following artists: Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, Nadine Bariteau, Iain Baxter&, Blue Republic, Ron Bolt, Robert Bourdeau, Robert Burley, Joy Charbonneau, Barbara Cole, Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge, Ruth Cuthand, Bonnie Devine, Paterson Ewen, Betty Goodwin, Joseph Hartman, Isabelle Hayeur, Adrien Hebert, John Heddle, April Hickox, Sarah Anne Johnson, Joan Jonas, Ruth Kaplan, Roy Lichtenstein, Ann MacIntosh Duff, Ron Martin, Christopher McLeod, Anong Migwans Beam, David Milne, Ed Pien, Liss Platt, David Rokeby, Mark Ruwedel, Flip Schulke, Phil Taylor, Robert Whale, and Jin-Me Yoon. .
