Winnipeg Art Gallery: The 80s Image, September 28- April 7

The Winnipeg Art Gallery

The 80s Image
September 28 2018- April 7th 2019

If "video killed the radio star" in 1980, what impact did video have on traditional art media? The 80s Image explores the curious resiliency of painting and still-photography throughout the decade, and artists' responsiveness to the rapidly expanding media landscape-video, television, cinema, satellite and computer imagery, and billboard advertising. In this exhibition, you'll see approximately 50 works by Canadian artists, including Eleanor Bond, Lynne Cohen, Stan Douglas, General Idea, Wanda Koop, and Ken Lum, whose paintings and photographs helped to define the 1980s.
