LEGACIES
September 9, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Curated by Margaret Rodgers
Teri Donovan, Alexandra Luke, Gwen MacGregor, and Isabel McLaughlin

LEGACIES explores the art of Alexandra Luke and Isabel McLaughlin through the lens of two contemporary artists, Teri Donovan and Gwen MacGregor. Paintings by Luke and McLaughlin are exhibited in conjunction with MacGregor's multi-media rendering of their words and thoughts, and Donovan's mixed media explorations of historical and cultural imagery relative to their lives and works.

The exhibition focuses on the manner in which two mid twentieth-century women artists have affected, through their art and philanthropy, not only a regional cultural landscape, but indeed are able to in-spire and feed into current discourse on artmaking, gender issues, and many aspects of the supportive structures of cultural institutions.


Heavy Hitters: The Gifts That Keep on Giving
September 23, 2017 – January 21, 2018

Heavy Hitters looks to some of the most influential works in the gallery’s collection, including works by Emily Carr, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Hans Hoffmann, Alexander Calder, and more. With this exhibition, we salute, with gratitude, the generosity of our donors who have made these works available.


Identity/Identify
September 2, 2017 – June 24, 2018

Identity/Identify will also pull from the permanent collection, this time exclusively through contemporary works, in order to look at how artists create and communicate identity through their work, featuring works by artists including Micah Lexier, Kelly Mark, Robert Houle, and Janice Gurney.

Dana Claxton: The Camper
Off-site project
Core21, 21 Simcoe Street S. Oshawa

The RMG has recently installed a new window project in the downtown core. Core21 now hosts a new project by Dana Claxton, a Hunkpapa Lakota filmmaker, photographer, and performance artist. The Camper, a never-before seen work, investigates how Indigenous and non-Indigenous people draw from the land spiritually, recreationally, or through necessity.
