Exhibition One:

Gordon Monahan / Seeing Sound / sound art, performance and music 1978 - 2012
College Art Galleries
University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada

May 25 to September 22, 2012

Artists: Gordon Monahan

PUBLIC RECEPTION: Friday, May 25th, 2012 at 8pm 

The exhibition looks at 30 years of work by sound and multimedia artist Gordon Monahan. Monahan's works for piano, loudspeakers, video, kinetic sculpture and computer-controlled sound environments hybridize various genres from science, music, performance art and avant-garde concert music to multimedia installation and sound art. As a composer and sound artist, he juxtaposes the quantitative and qualitative aspects of natural acoustical phenomena with elements of media technology, environment, architecture, popular culture and live performance.

Exhibition Two:

Picasso and His Contemporaries
Kenderdine Art Gallery
University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada

April 3 to May 11, 2012

Curated by: Leah Taylor

Artists: Picasso and Contemporaries

Spanish artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) remains one of the most significant and prolific artistic figures of the 20th century. He arguably changed the face of Modern art as he continually experimented with materials, styles, techniques and subject matter. Drawn from the University of Saskatchewan Art Collection, and several borrowed works from the collection of the Mendel Art Gallery, Picasso and His Contemporaries celebrates select pieces with impressive provenance that exemplify the ambitious achievements in Picasso's career.

This exhibition not only looks at important Picasso prints, primarily focusing on Picasso's later period (1955–65), but also celebrates the work of his contemporaries. Ranging from Georges Braque and Sonia Delaunay to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso's contemporaries are comprised of important artists who were influenced by, worked concurrently, or prefigured his major stylistic movements.
