Organized by the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada. The Founding Partner of the Canadian Photography Institute is Scotiabank.
The National Gallery of Canada (NGC) has one of the most comprehensive, international, and respected collections of photographs in North America. Established in 1967 and covering the history of the medium up to today, The Extended Moment is a selection of over eighty photographs that will be exhibited at the Audain Art Museum from February 8 to May 24, 2020. Because of the breadth and depth of the NGC collection, as well as an equal weighing of historic and contemporary works, there are resonances between images made more than one hundred years apart. These photographs move and enlighten the visitor as they chart a history of image-making, technological change, and social transformation. It is this aspect of the collection that forms the core of this exhibition. Prominent photographers to be included in this impressive selection of works from the NGC holding are: Diane Arbus, Edward Burtynsky, Julia Margaret Cameron, Lynne Cohen, Camille Corot, Stan Douglas, Walker Evans, Anne Fishbein, Isabelle Hayeur, Fred Herzog, Spring Hurlbut, Arnaud Maggs, Man Ray, Yasumasa Morimura, Gary Schneider, Edward Steichen, Hiroshi Sugimoto, John Vanderpant, and David Wojnarowicz.
Funded in part by the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Province of British Columbia.
