Marjolyn van der Hart: Vacationland

June 19

|Recurring Event (See all)

and Once on %1$s
Free

Opening Night: June 10th, 3-5 pm
As Canada celebrates its 150th year, Marjolyn van der Hart’s VACATIONLAND explores memory and its relationship to personal and national identities. The Canada found in vintage postcards and advertising is a land of vast wilderness and escape. Van der Hart delves into the role of this midcentury history, personal memories, and nostalgia in shaping a lasting image of Canada. Themes of self-empowerment, balancing work and family and the desire to escape the demands we face as men and women permeate her most recent series’. The personal generates the public while, simultaneously public imagery has the power to evoke personal experiences, or an imagined past. This period was the beginning of our modern identity and brings up memories (or perceptions) of #Canada150.
