Visit the Oh, Canada website (external link)

Oh, Canada: Contemporary Art from North North America, organized by the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), is the largest survey of contemporary Canadian art ever produced outside Canada. Comprising of more than 100 artworks by 62 artists and collectives from across the country, Oh Canada is huge in both scale and scope. Too big for just one gallery, the exhibition will be presented at Esker Foundation, Nickle Galleries, Illingworth Kerr Gallery and Glenbow. This unique collaboration will encourage dialogue, debate, and a deeper understanding of local, regional, and national contemporary practice.
