This is the cover for the new AGGV Gallery Guide (July-September 2012) which is basically the quarterly brochure about what is happening at the Gallery. The last cover featured the serene image of William Kurelek’s Ukrainian Pioneer #6 painting, a nice pastoral piece…with a small mushroom cloud in the distance, granted.
This month is something completely different! In preparation for the Beyond Likeness exhibition (Contemporary Works from the Portrait Gallery of Canada – opening September 21), the Gallery guide features a detail of a portrait of David Cronenberg holding back his bottom lip and exposing his lower left molars. The photo was taken in 1999 by Richard Ansett who will be featured in the exhibition.
