The 80s Image

If “video killed the radio star” in 1980, what impact did video have on traditional art media?

The 80s Image¬†explores the curious resiliency of painting and still-photography throughout the decade, and artists’ responsiveness to the rapidly expanding media landscape-video, television, cinema, satellite and computer imagery, and billboard advertising.

In this exhibition, you will see approximately 50 works by Canadian artists, including Eleanor Bond, Lynne Cohen, Stan Douglas, General Idea, Wanda Koop, and Ken Lum, whose paintings and photographs helped to define the 1980s.
