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:
Nicole Kelly Westman and Del Hillier
Presenting Two Left-Footed Loocee and Delvis Cache
Exhibition: April 22nd – July 2nd, 2016
Reception: Friday, April 22nd, 2016, 8:00PM
A collaboration between Calgary-based artist Nicole Kelly Westman and Vancouver-based artist Del Hillier, Presenting Two Left-Footed Loocee and Delvis Cache unites the characters of Two Left Footed Loocee and Delvis Cache for a performative and sculptural installation that bridges the multifarious contexts of contemporary art with personal narrative, as the artists explore their shared experiences of growing up in blue collar mining families through performance. Drawing from the politics and peculiarities of both the mining industry and art institutions, Presenting Two Left-Footed Loocee and Delvis Cache offers a satirical and humorous inquiry into hierarchies of labour and the quirks of the art world, with catchy tunes to boot.
In the Untitled Contemporary Art +15 Window:
Exhibition: April 8th – May 31st, 2016
Reception: Thursday May 19th, 2016, 6PM - 7PM
Through the use of appropriative text, video, and objects, MOTIVATION/MOVEMENT reveals an abstract investigation into socio-economic patterns of capital. An homage to the work of French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari,MOTIVATION/MOVEMENT gives physical form to philosophical thought, animating The Body Without Organs and the Desiring Machines of the human unconscious.
