A SENSE OF SCALE: THE ART OF IVAN EYRE, 1970-2000

Opening in mid-December | Continuing from where the 2017 WAG@The Park exhibitionWasteland Dreamland: Early Works by Ivan Eyre, 1957-1969 left off, A Sense of Scale surveys the subsequent two decades, when the nationally renowned Manitoba artist developed his most defining imagery.  The exhibition focuses on the artist’s increasingly complex and disorienting approach to communicating scale and rendering distance. 

The APC is home to over 5,000 paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings by Ivan Eyre, making it the largest collection of one of the country’s most esteemed painters and draughtsmen. The WAG holds over 40 works by the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, an artist celebrated internationally and best known for Manufactured Landscapes, a series documenting his travels through China between 2004 and 2006.
