Upcoming Exhibitions

January 15 to May 14th, 2017
Clare Langan: The Winter of 13 Storms
Curated by Virginia Eichhorn, Director and Chief Curator

The TOM is very pleased to host a major exhibition of Dublin artist Clare Langan’s work. Consisting of poetically evocative videos and photographs, her films have been described as being a contemporary meditation on the Romantic Landscape in its entire beautiful, haunting and melancholic splendour, as she takes us on a journey through multiple geographical locations both real and constructed, allowing us access to dreamlike visions of the potential chaos that exists in nature and in our cinematic memories.

January 15 to May 14th, 2017
Michael Markowsky: The Persistence of Doubt
Curated by Heather Hughes, Curator of Temporary Exhibitions

Using documents which have been in the Tom Thomson Art Gallery’s care for several decades and never yet released to the public, Vancouver artist Michael Markowsky presents a series of sculptures, drawings, and paintings that investigate the facts and theories surrounding the mystery of Tom Thomson’s death. The exhibition explores untold stories and possibilities inviting the viewer into a world of discovery about the mythic man and artistic maverick, Tom Thomson.

Continuing and Evolving Exhibitions…

Works by Tom Thomson are on view in our ongoing CANADIAN SPIRIT: The Tom Thomson Experience exhibition.  Paintings, memorabilia and archival images offer an insightful look at Thomson’s life, ranging from his early years in Owen Sound to his untimely death at Canoe Lake in 1917. Thomson remains one of Canada’s most influential artists of the 20th century and a true Canadian hero!

Canadian Spirit 2016 – On the Edge of all the Wild Stuff
This year’s theme On the Edge of All the Wild Stuff, will look at historical events that took place in 1916 such as Women winning the right to vote in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta; the election of the first female magistrate in the British Empire (in Alberta); the creation of an all-black battalion of 500,000 troops by the Government of Canada; as well as Tom Thomson’s peripheral involvement with the War, city living and his continued time spent in Algonquin where his style became increasingly looser, more confident and poised for a major break-through. Canadian Spirit will celebrate these events through its Off-Site Multi-Arts Projects Program consisting of multi-disciplinary forms of visual, media, performing and literary arts, relevant to both historical and contemporary issues, that will challenge, provoke, and inspire audiences of all ages.
