Mark Lewis: Canada is curated by Adelina Vlas, the AGO’s Associate Curator of Contemporary Art.
Making its world premiere this spring at the AGO is a series of three new films by contemporary artist Mark Lewis exploring the idea of Canada. The Hamilton-born artist, who lives and works in London, UK, is one of the most prominent practitioners working with moving image today. Presented as simultaneous projections, Lewis’s new films illuminate the complicated and sometimes contradictory meanings “Canada” – the word as well as the country. Lewis is interested in exploring the idea of place as it relates to the land we call Canada. Shot in various locations, the films are set up as staged encounters between the camera and the landscape, creating meditations on and of a place.
