Ghosts of Canoe Lake: New Work by Marcel Dzama
Former Juxtapoz cover artist Marcel Dzama's delicate and fantastical drawings made with ink, watercolor paint, and root beer catapulted the Winnipeg-born artist to international fame in the late 1990s. Since then, Dzama has relocated to Brooklyn, New York, expanding his practice to include performance, sculpture, and video. Ghosts of Canoe Lake: New Work by Marcel Dzama celebrates a new body of work inspired by the artist’s interest in Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, recalling as well his childhood spent in the landscape of Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Featuring paintings, installation, and video, Ghosts of Canoe Lake: New Work by Marcel Dzama at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection is the first major exhibition of Dzama’s work in Canada in nearly a decade. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Contemporary Calgary.
