We were thrilled to receive our copies of "Oh West Canada", a book of contemporary artists in which we both had the honour of being included. The book was published as part of the Imago Mundi project. The original artwork joins the Luciano Benetton Collection and, it is anticipated, will be exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2017.
"On West Canada! Contemporary Artists from Western Canada guides one through the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, introducing them to the cultural topography and the artists who inhabit it as well," says Jennifer Karch Verzé, curator. "It is all about artistic interpretations of the Canadian West."
More than 240 works were submitted for consideration leading to a rigorous selection to choose the works to be present in the catalogue and exhibitions. For more information and to see the full collection, please visit www.imagomundiart.com
