  • Beyond Surf Culture in Australia: Vernon Ah Kee’s cantchant

    Beyond Surf Culture in Australia: Vernon Ah Kee’s cantchant

    When you step into Vernon Ah Kee’s installation, cantchant (2009), expect to see much more than an expression of Australia’s surf culture. The work, from the National Gallery of Canada collection and currently on view at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, uses a series of suspended surfboards and a three-channel video to tell a powerful and compelling story of conflict, racism and contested territory along Australia’s beaches. “It’s a heavily loaded work,” Ah Kee has said of cantchant. “There’s a lot to look at.”

  • A Touch of Serendipity: Chagall & Winnipeg

    A Touch of Serendipity: Chagall & Winnipeg

    Winnipeg would never have known of the relationship between famed 20th-century artist Marc Chagall and Dr. Ferdinand Eckhardt, a former director of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, had it not been for a complicated series of coincidences, fascinating friendships and a touch of serendipity. When the Chagall & Winnipeg mini-exhibition opened to the public at the WAG this spring, a trunk filled with memories, letters, photographs, and works of art was thrown wide open.

  • The Patina of Age: Working Photographs of The Globe and Mail

    The Patina of Age: Working Photographs of The Globe and Mail

    Before newspapers entered the digital age, photographs were printed, marked up, and altered entirely by hand. Newsrooms used grease pencil to mark crop lines, applied paint to highlight black and white tones, and scribbled captions on the back of prints. At The Globe and Mail, each of their images was carefully archived, resulting in an enormous collection of over 700,000 photographs and one million negatives.
