Abstraction in Canada:
The Legacy of Jock Macdonald

Saturday, 7 March 2015, 10am – 4pm

This one-day symposium at the RMG will explore the life and work of Canadian painter Jock Macdonald, including postwar abstraction in Canada and Macdonald’s influence on the last century of Canadian art.  This event is held in conjunction with Jock Macdonald: Evolving Form —the first major retrospective of the artist's work in over thirty years. The exhibition tour extends from the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria - making The RMG the only stop east of British Columbia to see this important retrospective. 

The day will include an in-depth tour of the exhibition, a light lunch and refreshments and presentations from art historians, researchers, students and curators. Curator Linda Jansma will also share the fascinating story of how she discovered a trove of previously unknown early Automatics, buried in the archives of The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Lunch and refreshments included. $20 / $15 students / Free for RMG Members
