MUSE: an exhibition involving three artists and a curator from New Brunswick at the Banff Park Museum from 30th May until 30th June 2014.
curator: Anne Koval
artists: Janice Wright Cheney, D'Arcy Wilson, Amanda Dawn Christie
This Natural History Museum was founded in the late nineteenth century and is now designated an historical site: “a museum of a museum”.
This exhibition includes the work of D’Arcy Wilson, Janice Wright Cheney and Amanda Dawn Christie, curated by Anne Koval. The exhibition is scheduled to open on Friday 30th May and continue until the end of June 2014. This blog serves as a form of field notes of the curator as the installation progresses through the month of May.
The artist Janice Wright Cheney and the curator Anne Koval have a BAIR residency at the Banff Centre during this period to allow for a site specific work to be made and for the exhibition to be installed. We will also be involved in a workshop “Creature (Dis)Comforts” (CACHET) at the Banff Centre during our first week in May which will relate directly to the exhibition and our practices as artist and as curator.
