Where Ottawa - - ART GALLERIES -

The Na­tional Gallery of Canada is cel­e­brat­ing the life’s work of 81-year-old Alex Janvier, who is with­out a doubt one of the grand ar­chi­tects of con­tem­po­rary Abo­rig­i­nal art. A five-month ret­ro­spec­tive will fea­ture over 150 paint­ings and draw­ings on pa­per, can­vas, and linen that are dis­tinctly Janvier’s. His fa­mil­iar, multi-coloured modernism man­ages to con­vey both de­light and de­spair as he has ex­plored Indige­nous cul­ture as a whole and his own ex­pe­ri­ence in res­i­den­tial schools. gallery.ca
