In Conversation - 'Blazes Along the Trail': Exploring David Milne's Imaginative Vision Curator Talk

Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery

Moose Jaw, SK

Digital Museum Painting Visual arts

Milne’s significance as an early twentieth century Canadian modernist artist rests on his focussed and deeply personal artmaking strategies informed by an innovative aesthetic and stylistic approach. His vision differed markedly from the artistic intentions and ideological positioning of the landscape art of the Group of Seven whose works were perceived to be in alignment with a nation-building narrative which gained prominence in Canada following the First World War. The selection of Milne’s works featured in this exhibition reveals the range of David Milne’s inspiration in exploring media which supported his painting while also fostering new considerations in his approach to his art-making. Exhibition organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Windsor; Curated by Chris Finn Join us in conversation with curator Chris Finn on Zoom. October 20 at 7:00 pm.
