Chris Cran: It’s My Vault
8 January – 9 May
McMaster Museum of Art, Hamilton, Ontario
Artist turns curator for this show at the McMaster Museum of Art as Calgary-based Chris Cran selects works from the museum’s impressive 6,000-piece permanent collection to exhibit alongside a painting of his own, The Disputed Sculpture (2007). Cran offers a new perspective on the collection, selecting works which he describes as falling into categories of ‘portraits, landscape to abstraction, collage/wallpaper, and squeeze and stretch’, including works by Art & Language, Raoul Dufy, John Hoyland, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Leon Kossoff, Bruce McLean, Robert Rauschenberg and Gerhard Richter.
