Entitled Future Station, the 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art is an examination of the creative practices at work with Alberta artists and ultimately an expression on what it feels like to be an artist in Alberta. The title is derived from an abandoned transit platform located under the civic centre of the province’s capital, Edmonton. The themes of the 2015 Biennial include: psychology as a creative methodology and means to audience effect, natural forces confronting the artist, detritus as a working material and austerity as an aesthetic.

“As our province’s oldest cultural institution, the AGA plays a key role in supporting and sharing work by Alberta artists. We are excited to present this next iteration of the Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art, which gives visitors a look into the dynamic future of art in our province,” said Kristy Trinier, Curator, AGA. “After conducting studio visits across all regions in Alberta, there was a general consensus from my discussions with artists: Alberta seeps into your lexicon as an artist and manifests in the work; now my work is to articulate this as the exhibition.”

The exhibition will be presented in three spaces of the Art Gallery of Alberta, Enterprise Square Galleries and will include off-site installations. Since 1996, the Art Gallery of Alberta has presented the Alberta Biennial as a survey of contemporary art from across the province.

Future Station: 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art is curated by Kristy Trinier and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta.
