Art Gallery of Alberta.
Art lovers have plenty of choice at Edmonton’s newly expanded Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA), including new exhibitions of the work of Edgar Degas and Francisco Goya.
Edgar Degas: Figures in Motion explores the artist’s innovative compositions, skillful drawing and perceptive analysis of movement.
The Goya exhibit features the artist’s infamous print suites: Los Caprichos (1799) and The Disasters of War (1810-1820).
Ideal for incentive group activities, both exhibitions continue until May 30.
Launched in late January, the remodeled 85,000-sq.-ft. gallery, designed by Los Angeles architect Randall Stout, features three floors of exhibition space that will showcase historical and contemporary Canadian and international art.
The new AGA also includes a fully outfitted theatre; a ‘floating’ room, the Borealis Lounge; fine-dining restaurant, Zinc; L1 Espresso Bar and third-floor Terrace Café.
