Paul Klee: The Berggruen Collection from The Metropolitan Museum of Art
November 16, 2018 to March 17, 2019. Colours and shapes and symbols, oh my! I have to get moving on this one if I want to catch it before it closes. D. and I have it penciled in for next weekend.
May 24, 2019 to September 8, 2019. It’s Gauguin. And portraits. ‘Nuf said.
Canadian Museum of History (Ottawa)
Notman, Visionary Photographer
Until April 14, 2019. I follow the Canadian Museum of History on Facebook and keep seeing images from this exhibition in my feed. I know nothing about Canadian photographer William Notman, but I am drawn in by his work. Therefore, it goes on the short list.
Agnes Etherington Art Centre (Kingston)
In the Present: The Zacks Gift of 1962
August 25, 2018 to April 7, 2019. I’m intrigued by the time period covered by this exhibition (the 1960s) and by one of the pieces featured on the website. The piece is by Marcelle Ferron, a Québécoise painter associated with a group called the Automatistes. Back in January when D. and I visited the Musée national des beaux-arts in Québec city we saw several paintings by some of her male counterparts, but alas, I don’t remember seeing any by women. Here’s my chance. Also, I’ve been wanting to visit this gallery for a while now so… short list.
McCord Museum (Montreal)
Treasures in the Attic
December 16, 2018 to March 17, 2019. OK I’m not sure if I’ll make it to this one because there are only so many museums I can visit between now and mid-March, but an exhibition featuring antique and vintage toys? That’s short list material whether I manage to see it or not.
The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology
June 14, 2019 to September 15, 2019. If I can’t make the vintage toys exhibition, maybe I try to make this one. It speaks to my love of images and nostalgia.
