Born and raised in Windsor, a child of the North American working class and of the 1960s, activism has never subsided in John Scott’s work. His imagination was fed by science fiction, the Space Age, and Motor City manufacturing might and blight. Sympathy for the worker as a human tool in the global industrial complex pervades what some have called his apocalyptic vision. The exhibition includes over 30 works on paper in a vast installation at the AGH. Years of art-world machinations, physical afflictions and meteorological interventions (he has been struck by lightning twice) have not impacted his lifelong commitment to the act of mark-making.


1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group
On view February 20 to May 8, 2016
Exhibition from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has organized the first major exhibition to shed new light on an association of artists whose works characterized artistic life in 1920s Montreal, and Canada. These artists, known as the Beaver Hall Group, were to Montreal what the Group of Seven was to Toronto. But rather than offering an image of Canada’s identity through the depiction of untamed landscapes, they showed their attachment – and applied a modern touch – to the portrait and to humanized cityscapes and landscapes. Masterworks by such modern greats as Edwin Holgate, Anne Savage, Sarah Robertson, and A.Y. Jackson will come to Hamilton for the first time.-
