National Gallery of Canada and Winnipeg Art Gallery form three-year partnership
Beginning in January 2013, visitors will be able to see masterpieces from the national collection, both Canadian and international.

OTTAWA.- The National Gallery of Canada and the Winnipeg Art Gallery announced that they have signed a three-year partnership. The two institutions will present exhibitions in a specially dedicated space called The National Gallery of Canada at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Beginning in January 2013, visitors will be able to see masterpieces from the national collection, both Canadian and international. This agreement also coincides with the Centennial of the WAG, whose programming will be marked by year-long celebrations and leave an anniversary legacy.

"Winnipeg has a famously lively artistic community and we are very happy to be there. Not only will this partnership be stimulating for our curators, it will put the national collection to greater use," said NGC director Marc Mayer. "We offer our warmest thanks to our colleagues at the Winnipeg Art Gallery for initiating a relationship that will let us serve one of Canada's most discerning local audiences."

This is the third partnership of this kind for the NGC, which launched The National Gallery of Canada at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto in November 2010 and The National Gallery of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton in 2009. These partnerships enrich the NGC's extensive touring art exhibition program, allowing the Gallery to reach audiences in other large Canadian urban centres. The artworks exhibited in these spaces will range from the presentation of single works or newacquisitions, to exhibitions covering a variety of collecting areas.

“I can’t think of a more distinguished art institution to partner with in the country than the National Gallery of Canada,” said Stephen Borys, WAG Executive Director, “and to see this partnership launched in our Centennial year is particularly exciting. The NGC@WAG initiative allows us to bring to Winnipeg the very best in historical, modern, and contemporary art, giving our visitors an opportunity to see some incredible pieces from Canada and around the globe.”

Featured masterpieces
Canadian artist Janet Cardiff's famous and much-loved work Forty-Part Motet will open the exhibition space in January and be on view until April 2013, while Louise Bourgeois 1911 - 2010 will begin a summer run in May 2013. Christian Marclay's masterfully gripping work The Clock will be shown in fall 2013. For more information on the exhibition calendar, visit

Janet Cardiff. Forty-Part Motet
From January to April, 2013, WAG visitors will be able to experience the exceptional Forty-Part Motet. Acclaimed by both audiences and critics, this brilliant sound sculpture by Canadian artist Janet Cardiff is a reworking of Spem in Alium by Thomas Tallis, a 16th-century English composer. Forty separately-recorded choir voices are played back through 40 speakers positioned around the gallery.

Louise Bourgeois 1911-2010
The remarkable artistic career of Louise Bourgeois, who passed away in May 2010 at the age of 98, will be in the spotlight from May to September 2013. The installation pays tribute to the French-born, American artist best known in Ottawa for her majestic bronze spider Maman, which greets visitors on the museum's plaza, and whose work the NGC has been collecting for nearly two decades. Louise Bourgeois 1911-2010 is an opportunity for viewers to admire more than twenty major sculptures and drawings by the artist created between 1949 and 2008.

The Clock. Christian Marclay
In fall 2013, from September to November, The NGC at WAG will host The Clock, an ode to time and cinema by the internationally-acclaimed artist Christian Marclay. The work is made up of thousands of film clips making reference to time compiled into a 24-hour single channel real time video. Viewers of the work are drawn into a vast range of cinematic settings and moods within the space of a few minutes, making time unravel in countless directions and rupturing any sense of linear, narrative sequence. The work is both a homage to more than a century of film history and an affirmation of our present time. This installation was jointly acquired in 2011 by the NGC and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
