Online juried slide exhibition with playlist and PDF catalogue

JUROR/CURATOR: ANQI LI
DESIGNER: MARINA DOUKAS

The John B. Aird Gallery is proud to present its first large group project organized around the Landscape Genre, a genre of art practiced for centuries around the world.

As LANDSCAPES was imagined as a virtual survey exhibition, the Gallery had the opportunity to invite international-based artist/curator Anqi Li, who was on a residency in Banff, to act as a juror for entries submitted by contemporary artists worldwide.

The publication was designed by Marina Doukas and includes a response text by both the curator and designer.

Li selected pieces by seventy-six artists that, in concert, act to depict current notions of landscape utilizing a combination of historical and modern art technologies.

The contributing artists are Michael Abraham, Sue Allison, Rebis Alter, Denise Antaya, Nancy Bennett, Martin Blanchet, Julie Bélanger Melanie Brunton, Renata Buziak, Patricia Coulter, Sylvie Daigneault, Julie Desmarais, Sherry Dube, Janice Evans, Tanya Fenkell, Marie Finkelstein, Saremifar Firouzeh, Julie Florio, Sylvia Galbraith, Mike Grandmaison, Michael Hannan, David Harrison, Katherine Hartel, Mary Hayes, Isabelle Hemard, Jill Hobson, Tatjana Hutinec, Stephen Karchut, Ted Karkut, David Kempton, Martin Kotyluk, Hiu Lam, Cynthia Langford, Adora Lau, Sabrina Leeder, David Lidbetter, Gregory Majster, Mathieu MarcotteCynthia McLaren, Richard McNaughtonDeirdre McIntosh, Judi MillerJesus Mora, Alex Neumann, Melissa Patel, Tushar Patel, Frances Patella, Pam Patterson, Bob Pennycook, Jackie Rancourt, Amal Rashed, Terence Reeves, Edna Ruiz, Mikael Sandblom, Laura Santini, Lee Schnaiberg, Emily Simek, Shawn Skeir, Barry Smylie, Margaret Stawicki, Doug Stratford, Lea Tavis, Kate Taylor, Tizzi Tan, Lynda Todd, Isaac Trapper, Caroline-Hermine Tremblay, Ana Vatres, Julie Vetro, Marian Wihak, Don Woodiwiss, Hiroshi Yamamoto and Micheal Zarowsky.

BIOGRAPHY

Anqi Li​ is an independent curator interested in a cross-cultural art exchange. Influenced by her recent immigration experience, her practice examines the recurring local-global irreconcilability within the increasingly homogenized contemporary art.

Anqi graduated from OCAD University’s Criticism & Curatorial Practice program and curated the Flowing Still exhibition at the Xpace Cultural Centre. Her thesis paper, “Chen Danqing’s Self-Marginalization in Global Art History,” was presented at the  Outside In conference hosted by OCAD U and UAL.  Anqi Li is the recipient of the OCAD-U Clark Centre for the Arts, Call for Curators/Cultural Producers!

She also chaired the roundtable “The Uneven Ground of Global Art History” at the 2022 Universities Art Association of Canada Conference. As a writer, Anqi has written for ArtworxTO, a public art project initiated by the City of Toronto and the​ OCAD U Journal of Visual & Critical Studies.
