Engaging in contemporary art and ideas.
Situated in the heart of downtown Calgary, Untitled Art Society supports emerging art through public exhibitions, workshops and educational programming, the provision of production resources, and opportunities for discourse.
Untitled exhibitions showcase early emerging artists as an important aspect of critical engagement in provincial contemporary art.
In the Untitled Contemporary Art Main Space:
A photograph of eight women taken on April 17th, 1935, in Corbin, B.C., following a coal miners’ strike, is the starting point for a series of new collaborative works by Jason de Haan and Warren McLachlan. Part of an ongoing effort to excavate and re-imagine vital events in one town’s history, Sisters envisions the personas of eight unnamed women, their political will, and their solidarity in the face of a violent industrial force.
In the Untitled Contemporary Art +15 Window:
Exhibition: February 8, 2015 - March 31, 2015
Reception: Thursday, March 19, 6PM - 7PM
After months of exploring sound and light as static patterns in a gallery space, Calgary-based media artist Christopher Payne picked up a Bolex and a roll of low contrast black and white film stock to shoot images that were supposedly nearly impossible to capture on film. Focused on snow and on smoke rising from chimneys against a grey overcast sky, the resulting film is all but imperceptible at first. Once the image begins to take form, the film grain and the hand processing reveal a familiar Canadian experience akin to walking outside in winter; as smoke, clouds, and snow struggle to differentiate themselves as distinct objects of perception.
