HALIFAX.- A new exhibition from Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s permanent collection, seeks to bring visitors to the intersection of art and architecture. Making Space looks to the attributes of the built environment as a thematic point of departure. The exhibition explores the physical and philosophical constructs of the space and structures in our lives to expose a range of present-day concerns.

“This exhibition delves into the relationship between people and the structures we build” says David Diviney, Senior Curator and curator of the exhibition. “The included works examine such tensions as the boundaries between public and private spaces and the shift from urban to suburban environments”.

Making Space features a multidisciplinary mix of artistic practice from photography and sculpture, to works on paper which reflect upon architecture and its ability to generate and communicate meaning. The artists featured in this exhibition not only document our ever-evolving surroundings but also present important questions that underlie contemporary life and culture.

“Included in Making Space is a project I developed in 2012 in response to the rapid pace of redevelopment in Halifax’s downtown core” shares Charley Young, a Nova Scotia based artist featured in this exhibition. “In my work, Shroud, the facade of the Macara Barnstead Building was used to create a large-scale print. This work documents the unique architectural features and worn textures of this building before its demolition and redevelopment.”

This exhibition features works by Vikky Alexander, Edward Burtynsky, Jane Buyers, Patrick Caulfield, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Allyson Clay, Alvin Comiter, John Devlin, Dan Graham, Mitch Mitchell, Elspeth Pratt, Margaret Priest, Lyla Rye, Rene Van Halm, Charley Young, Daniel Young & Christian Giroux, and Carl Zimmerman.

The exhibition is now on view and will remain open until September 26, 2021. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax is open Thursday, 2:00-9:00pm and Friday to Sunday 10:00am-5:00pm.

“We’re thrilled to be able to display these pieces through Making Space” shares Nancy Noble, Director & CEO. “We’re at a point where the two worlds of art and architecture are intersecting on a large scale for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, so it was really important to showcase these works and we are hopeful it inspires people to think about architecture in a new way”.
