The Canadian Dream: 1965 - 1970
A MacKenzie Art Gallery Provincial Touring Artist & Exhibition Program
November 1 to 23
In 1967 Canada was alive with Centennial celebrations. While remembering the past 100 years, the celebrations also provided a venue for conversations surrounding internal divisions between French- and English-speaking Canada, the emergence of voices from Canada's Indigenous communities, the rise of the United States as a cultural superpower and the clash of two movements in art. This exhibition takes a look at these conversations through selections created in the 1960's showing a nation in transitition
