Future Station: Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art

Art Gallery of Alberta
Edmonton AB – Jan 24-May 3, 2015

Now approaching its 20th anniversary, the Alberta Biennial is one of the oldest such exhibitions in this country, and is distinct from longer-standing biennials because of its open-call process. However, like the more storied biennials, Alberta’s employs a guest curator. This year it is public art expert Kirsty Trinier at the helm.

Titled Future Station, named after an abandoned light rapid transit stop beneath Edmonton’s civic centre, the 2015 biennial exhibition is described in the promotional materials as “a physical and allegorical place of transition and stasis: part urban mythology and part monument to the banality of dormant infrastructure” – an appropriate metaphor when one considers an emerging generation that spends more time negotiating the world through its mobile devices than by city bus or train.

Most of the 40-plus artists participating this year hail from Calgary and Edmonton. Those living outside Alberta’s biggest cities include Sundre’s Jude Griebel, High Prairie’s Robin Lambert, Rich Lake’s Amy Malbeuf, and St. Albert’s Brad Necyk.
