The work of Emily Carr (1871-1945) is nationally respected for its pioneering of modernity in Western Canada. This project, curated by Lisa Baldissera, Chief Curator, Mendel Art Gallery, is the first significant presentation of Emily Carr’s work in Saskatchewan in almost 20 years. Convoluted Beauty examines Carr’s legacy through work by major international artists, including Charlotte Salomon.
The Mendel is grateful to Tourism Saskatoon, B’nai Brith Lodge 739 and Congregation Agudas Israel, Saskatoon, for sponsoring this exhibition.
