The Post War Movement: Canadian Abstraction Since 1950

This exhibition highlights a period of remarkable creativity in this country, when ideas of abstraction and the nature and limits of artistic mediums were being hotly contested by artists. These artists, some of the most celebrated in Canada, continually sought to redefine what painting was and what it could be. Works by Rita Letendre, Harold Town, Marcel Barbeau, Lise Gervais, Marcelle Ferron, Kazuo Nakamura, Fernand Leduc, Serge Lemoyne, Gordon Smith, William Ronald, Jack Shadbolt, and Ron Bloore.

Daphne OdjigDaphne Odjig, Canadian Indigenous Artist and Icon Dies at 97. Click here for more details.

Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, and eight Honorary Doctorates. Her works have been shown in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971. Known as 'Odjig Indian Prints,' this print house was so successful that it evolved into an Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
