Into the Light: The Art of Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald

May 24, 2020 to September 7, 2020. May 24, 2020 to September 7, 2020Into the Light is the first exhaustive survey of the influential Manitoba modernist, and Group of Seven member, in 40 years.Beloved for his sensitive, serene depictions of Manitoba, Winnipeg artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956) was the last member to join the Group of Seven in 1932. Compared to the more outspoken members of the Group, FitzGerald's voice was a quieter one, his legacy including both his stewardship of the Winnipeg School of Art (1929-1947) and the development of the WAG. He had his first show at the WAG in 1921, becoming one of Canada's best known modernist painters.Back .

Nuliajuk's Story

May 24, 2020 to January 3, 2021. May 24, 2020 to January 3, 2021Storytelling is one of the most important aspects of Inuit culture, passed down by elders through generations to enrich and enlighten.The fluid nature of oral culture means details of certain legends also tend to be ever-evolving. Among the most famous of the vast array of oral storytelling traditions, are those related to the sea spirit known by different regions throughout the Canadian North as Nuliajuk, Taleelayuk, Takannaaluk, Arnajuinnaq, Uinigumasuittuq – or Sedna.In most of these stories, Nuliajuk becomes the guardian of the sea animals, and is a force to be reckoned with.

May 24, 2020 to August 9, 2020Tue to Sun 11:00 am to 5:00 pm / Friday 11am-9pm / Closed MondayThe Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau (1931-2007) emerged onto the Canadian art scene in the 1960s. Androgyny expresses his view of the fluidity and interconnectedness of life, as well as gender. In 1983 he offered this mural, in a decolonizing gesture of reconciliation, to the people of Canada. The work was installed in the lobby of what is today Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada headquarters in Gatineau, Quebec. In the early 2000s, then Governor General Michaëlle Jean arranged for it to be installed in the ballroom at Rideau Hall. Today, Androgyny is recognized as one of Morrisseau's most significant works of art, and a reminder to Canadians of the enduring bond formed by an important gift.Back . Event Details.
