Made in Calgary: The 2000s

Friday, September 19, 2014 to Saturday, December 13, 2014

Organized by Glenbow, produced in collaboration with Nickle Galleries. Curated by Katherine Ylitalo

Made in Calgary is a five-part exhibition series organized by Calgary’s Glenbow that has explored the character of Calgary's artistic community from 1960 to 2010. Each exhibition reflects the work of a single decade, and Nickle Galleries is proud to be a community partner with Glenbow for the fifth and final installment of the series, The 2000s. Curator Katherine Ylitalo offers a sweeping view of contemporary art in the city, including 83 artists across two galleries – reflecting the energy of connections and cross currents always at play in Calgary.

Says Ylitalo:

In this decade, there’s a no-holds-barred attitude toward material, subject, content and methods. Choices abound: high tech, low tech, do-it-yourself? Work in miniature or create a spectacle? Work inside or outside the museum?
