Inspiration, Lifestyle, My Canada

Art Gallery of Hamilton

We are continuing our journey of exploring and celebrating everything Canadian for Canada’s 150th birthday.  There is so much to see in our beautiful country. Even in our closest area there are  many places we want to visit :)  Last Saturday was wet and gloomy, therefore we decided to stay local and indoor. We all felt like going to the museum or to the gallery. Our curiosity took us to the very special and very Canadian Place – Art Gallery of Hamilton. It is one of the oldest public galleries in Canada and third largest with a collection of over 10,000 works! Amazing place for the entire family. We saw parents and grand parents with kids in different age groups and everyone had lots of fun. The place is very clean and inviting and all employees do everything possible to make the experience enjoyable and unforgettable! I know we will be back :)

Sara Angelucci : Piece work

Born in Hamilton to Italian immigrant parents, Sara Angelucci is well known for autobiographical work in a range of media including still photography, moving image, sonic performance and installation. With Piece Work, Angelucci revisited her mother’s history as a garment worker, producing a new installation in three parts, in collaboration with contemporary workers at Hamilton’s Coppley Apparel. /AGH/

The Living Room: Subject. Object. Verb

The Living Room is the name for a new interactive, evolving installation in the Young Gallery, situated on the main level of the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Meant to loosely replicate the function of a family living room (comfortable seating, reading material, music, screens, toys, etc.) the space will be re-invigorated and re-imagined throughout the year. /AGH/

Maria was super excited to try different  typing machines! Now they both want to buy one for our home.

The original Blair Bruce Collection

“The images in Last Folio are a last memento of the culture and people who used those books. Most of them are forgotten, they don’t have relatives or graves. I tried to memorialize them. This is not a documentary but my personal salute to a vanished culture and a vanished people.”  – Yuri Dojc /AGH/

Kim Adams: Bruegel-Bosch Bus

Must see ongoing project by Canadian artist Kim Adams

Evolution of form

We spent five hours at the AGH and we will be back just to explore the exhibits a bit deeper. If you are planning on visiting this amazing place make sure you give yourself  plenty of time. The Bruegel-Bosch Bus itself needs a lot of examination to comprehend its intricacies! Who knows, maybe the next time we will see you there :)

…and a short video!
