The 80s Image

On view through spring 2019

If video killed the radio star in 1980, what impact did new media have on painting and photography? The 80s Image brings together a decade of art production–with pieces largely drawn from the WAG collection–and asks how these traditional media adapted within a rapidly-changing media environment, as well as the political and economic climate.

Featuring 50 pieces by Canadian and international artists whose work helped define the 1980s, including:

Roy Arden, Barbara Astman, Eleanor Bond, Bob Boyer, David Buchan, Brian Burnett, Sheila Butler, Lynne Cohen, Sorel Cohen, Carole Conde/Karl Beveridge, Douglas Curran, Peter Doig, Stan Douglans, William Eakin, Evergon, Cliff Eyland, FASTWÜRMS, Rosalie Favell, Suzanne Funnell, Suzanne Gauthier, General Idea, Larry Glawson, Jack Goldstein, Will Gorlitz, Janice Gurney, Robert Houle, Natalka Husar, Nomi Kaplan, Wanda Koop, Stephen Livick, Ken Lum, David McMillan, John Paskievich, Alison Rossiter, Tony Scherman, Jeffrey M. Thomas, Marsha Whiddon, John Will, and Tim Zuck.
