Gordon Bennett
'Be Polite'
June 30 to September 24, 2017
Alvin Balkind Gallery and Events Room

The Contemporary Art Gallery presents an exhibition of largely unseen works on paper by one of Australia’s most visionary and critical artists, Gordon Bennett (1955–2014). The exhibition is the first solo presentation of the artist’s work in North America.

Gordon Bennett is internationally acclaimed as one of Australia's most significant and critically engaged contemporary artists. He is recognised for his powerful perspectives on the post-colonial experience, particularly in the Australian context, with much of his work mapping alternative histories and questioning racial categorisations and stereotypes.

Levine Flexhaug
'A Sublime Vernacular: The Landscape Paintings'
June 30 to September 24, 2017
B.C. Binning Gallery

A Sublime Vernacular: The Landscape Paintings of Levine Flexhaug offers the first overview of the extraordinary career of Levine Flexhaug (1918 — 1974), born in the Treelon area near Climax, Saskatchewan. It brings together approximately 450 of the artist's paintings as well as several of his mural-sized works. An itinerant painter, he sold thousands of variations of essentially the same landscape painting in national parks, resorts, department stores and bars across western Canada from the late 1930s through the early 1960s. Whatever its variation, a Flexhaug image represents a Western icon, a silent unspoiled Eden that encapsulates the conventions of sublime landscape painting in a kind of painter's shorthand. For the Contemporary Art Gallery it continues a strand in our programming where we present work by artists who for a variety of reasons, operated outside of the strict mainstream of the art world.
