A cross-generational mix of 25 artists, both emerging and established, was selected from 200 applicants for Timeland. Installed in the beautiful new Art Gallery of Alberta, the show examines the first 10 years of the 21st century, and spans the spectrum of contemporary art styles and themes. Curator Richard Rhodes, the editor of Canadian Art and founder of C Magazine, views this time as “a period where the achievements and securities of established modernism are challenged by the new globalism” with “an expanded consciousness of world views, histories and cultures.”

Timeland serves as a conceptual guide to the diversity of art in Alberta today. The Alberta landscape, “where space can be measured in geological, durational and cultural timeframes,” plays a strong role in many pieces. Many works acknowledge the realities of the 21st century “one-world” planet, where climate change, ecological issues and a global economic reversal of fortunes have contributed to a new ethos of uncertainty and humility for the western world.

The biennial exhibition occupies 6,000 square feet of the third floor gallery space. Artworks include paintings, prints, sculptures, photography and textiles as well as film, music, video, performance and installations.
