Forthcoming May 2016:
Chris Cran, Sincerely Yours, Exhibition Catalogue
Production for the catalogue accompanying the Chris Cran, Sincerely Yours exhibition is on schedule !
Considered one of Canada’s most notable contemporary artists, Alberta’s Chris Cran is renowned for his humorous and inventive takes on traditional genres such as still life, portraiture, landscape and abstraction. Challenging perception and understanding of major movements such as Pop art, Op art, Modernist Abstraction and Photorealism, Cran playfully combines art history with imagery borrowed from popular culture.
Surveying Cran’s artistic production over the past forty years, the exhibition features over 100 paintings and drawings from the national collection, other institutions and private lenders, and is the most comprehensive exhibition on Cran ever produced.
The exhibition’s catalogue is a 200-page tome that includes 100 colour plates with essays by Josée Drouin-Brisebois, Ryan Doherty, Nancy Tousley, William Wood and Bruce McCulloch.
TrépanierBaer will have a limited number of artist-signed catalogues for purchase.
