DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

Through art and artmaking, the Centre will foster awareness, appreciation, and understanding of Indigenous art and culture. The art, life, and history of the Inuit will be highlighted through exhibitions, programs, research, education, and partnerships with Inuit artists and arts organizations in the North. This past summer, I had the privilege, along with my wife Hazel and son Roman, of touring the Heart of the Arctic on the Ocean Endeavour with Adventure Canada. We were fortunate to visit many communities in Nunavik, Nunavut, and Greenland, meeting with artists, elders, and lots of children. One of the highlights of the expedition was seeing the Arctic and the Inuit culture through the eyes of a child, my ten-year-old son.

The Centre is a bridge, enabling peoples from northern and southern communities to meet, learn, and work together. It will also act as a cultural hub promoting economic development and tourism. The link between North and South is critical to the IAC’s success; in fact, the connection is at the heart of this project. To learn more about the Centre visit The Inuit Art Centre Project exhibition at the WAG.

Only a handful of Canadians will ever see the land of the Inuit and the context for their incredible artmaking enterprise. That’s perhaps why Canada’s Inuit Art Centre (IAC), being developed right here at the WAG, is so important to our understanding of the Inuit. While textbooks, maps, and videos play an important role in a child’s education about the North and Indigenous cultures, a trip to the Centre will bring students face to face with Inuit carvings, prints, drawings and textiles, and the chance to meet with the creators of these works.

Of course there is a lot more going on at the WAG, which you can read about in this issue of myWAG—or visit wag.ca. If you haven’t seen Olympus yet—now is your chance before these extraordinary works are returned to Berlin.

It has been an exciting fall for the IAC project. The WAG started planning a home for its celebrated Inuit art collection, which numbers close to 14,000 works, more than three decades ago, and with recent developments and announcements we are getting closer to making the Centre a reality.

IAC HIGHLIGHTS: October 14: The Winnipeg Foundation announced their $950,000 contribution to the Inuit Art Centre project. Commemorating their 95th anniversary, it is the largest gift in the Foundation’s history.

November 19: The Premiers of Manitoba and Nunavut signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which includes a partnership between Nunavut and the WAG. Nunavut’s Fine Art Collections, numbering more than 7,000, will be transferred to the WAG for a five-year loan with $1 million in joint funding.

November 20: The Honourable Greg Selinger, Premier of Manitoba, announced that the Province will contribute $15 million to the IAC building project.

Thank you for supporting the WAG in so many ways —through your attendance, volunteering, donations, and feedback. Best wishes for the holidays and Happy New Year! Stephen Borys PhD, MBA Director & CEO @stephenborys

Athletic Heroes From Ancient Greece to Today By Mark Golden Professor Emeritus, Department of Classics, University of Winnipeg

Philosophers, poets, painters, potters, politicians: these are the ancient Greeks most of us know and admire. For the Greeks, however, the celebrities were athletes. The Athenians condemned Socrates to death even though he was one of their own. But when they captured Dorieus, a Rhodian and an enemy during the generation-long Peloponnesian War, they let him go because he was an Olympic champion boxer. Pindar, the most famous Greek lyric poet, wrote many kinds of verse, including hymns to the gods. Yet only his well-paid poems in honour of victors survived throughout antiquity.

Olympus is a rare opportunity to see ancient Greek and Roman art on the Prairies. As Manitoba’s first major exhibition of classical antiquities in over half a century, Olympus features over 160 works from the National Museums in Berlin—marble statues and reliefs, bronze statuettes, terracotta vases, and jewellery—spanning almost ten centuries of artistic production.

While winners at the great games, which were open to competitors from all over the Greek world, took home only a symbolic prize, such as a wreath of olive or laurel, their cities gave them cash rewards and other honours on their return. There were many other competitions too, and these did offer money prizes, much like golf or tennis tournaments today. Nothing prevented the athletes who won these competitions from going on to the Olympics or the Pythian games at Delphi, and many did.

As part of Olympus, we are partnering with local athletes and sports teams to celebrate modern-day gods and goddesses. See videos at wag.ca/heroes. An exhibit of the photographs by Ian McCausland opens at the WAG on December 18.

North American sports fans tend to focus on the shorter footraces; a good example is Usain Bolt. North Africans, however, are more likely to pay attention to distance runners; and in the Caucasus and Middle East, wrestlers are the heroes.

776 BC, and later festivals were identified by the name of the winner. Sculptors used the perfectly balanced bodies of pentathletes (naked like all other athletes) as models, such as the torso of an athlete seen in the Olympus exhibition. However, it was usually fighters—boxers, wrestlers, and the pancratiasts, who shared the skills of both— who became heroes in the Greek sense: mortals worshipped after their death. Meanwhile, the rich and powerful preferred horse and chariot-racing, a sport whose expense excluded lesser mortals and where wealth guaranteed a competitive career much longer than an athlete’s strength or swiftness. This was the sport of kings and of queens (women too could sponsor horses and chariot teams, though they were not permitted to attend the Olympus festival itself), and of kings' girlfriends. Bilistiche, mistress of Ptolemy II of Egypt, won the first Olympic twohorse chariot race for colts in 264 BC. 

work and the chariot-owner’s equivalent: the willingness to spend money. Natural talent also played a part. Then, as now, athletic ability ran (or boxed or wrestled) in families (horse owners supposedly had a knack for breeding winners). No one wins without something extra. We call it luck. The Greeks, equally at a loss for an explanation, credited the favour of the gods. After all, it was in their honour that the Greeks celebrated the Olympics and the many other competitive festivals that crowded their calendars.

Mark Golden is Professor Emeritus, Department of Classics, University of Winnipeg. He is the author of Sport and Society in Ancient Greece (1998), Sport in the Ancient World from A to Z (2004), and Greek Sport and Social Status (2008), among other titles.

How did the Greeks account for sporting success? Much as we do. Pindar praises the athlete’s hard

Abstract Objectives Painting and Sculpture, 1950–Present

We Are On Treaty Land

Until May 15 • Gallery 5 Curated by Andrew Kear

Until May 22 • Gallery 6 Curated by Jaimie Isaac

Since its beginning around the turn of the last century, modern abstraction has incorporated a broad range of approaches, intentions, and associations in the Western world. In the decades that followed World War II, abstract art went from being a crucial but misunderstood tendency within modernism, to a dominant mode of creative expression embraced by artists, art museums, and much of the general public. The increasing popularity of abstract painting and sculpture through the second half of the 20th century and into the 21st has bred heterogeneity. Historically, abstraction was construed as a vehicle for heroic self-expression, and formal experimentation. Even today, the look of abstract art is being redrawn, its motivations reconceived, and its objectives re-evaluated. This exhibition draws from the WAG’s permanent collection, bringing together paintings and sculptures by mostly Canadian artists created between 1950 and the present day. These works underline some of the shifting parameters and motivations that have shaped abstract art over the past 60 years.

We Are On Treaty Land is Jaimie Isaac’s first exhibition as Curatorial Resident of Indigenous and Contemporary Art at the WAG, which is located on Treaty No. 1 Territory. Interdisciplinary work by Indigenous artists provides reflections that are influenced and informed by the territory's land and treaty relations. The exhibition focuses on contemporary paintings, mixed media, and photography over a 40-year period from the WAG's collection. Together they generate narratives that examine what it means to honour and recognize the enduring treaties and long-standing relationships between the First Nations and the Crown. We Are On Treaty Land provides an opportunity to learn where we are today, and to move forward in collaboration. The art is complemented by historical objects generously loaned by The Manitoba Museum, including the Treaty 1 Medal and a beaded bandolier bag. These works serve as tangible witnesses to the historic treaty, transcending traditional and contemporary aesthetics.

Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven Ongoing • Gallery 3 Curated by Andrew Kear

In 1920, Frank Johnston helped establish the Group of Seven in Toronto. One year later, he left to assume the role of principal at the Winnipeg School of Art, at the time a location further west than any Group member had painted. The art school, which is now part of the University of Manitoba, was then associated with the Winnipeg Museum of Fine Arts (today, the Winnipeg Art Gallery). In Serenity, Lake of the Woods (1922), Johnston captures the geographical expanse of Ontario’s Lake of the Woods and the intensity of the region’s long-lasting summer light. He exhibited regularly in Winnipeg while he lived here, and his first solo exhibition in the city was mounted at the WAG in February 1922, several months before he painted Serenity, Lake of the Woods. The WAG acquired this canvas in 1924, after returning a tempera painting it had purchased from the artist. Johnston’s time in Winnipeg was fruitful; his creative practice developed and his confidence grew. Johnston returned to Toronto in 1924 and taught at the Ontario College of Art. That year, intent on pursuing a more independent creative path, Johnston cut his ties with the Group of Seven. Johnston’s piece is featured in the Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven exhibition.

The Modernist Tradition, 1900–1950 Ongoing • Gallery 4 Curated by Andrew Kear

In the mid-1920s, Elizabeth Wyn Wood, a recent graduate of the Ontario College of Art, was one of a growing number of sculptors more interested in direct forms of carving than casting. Neck and Head was exhibited at the Ontario Society of Artists exhibition in Toronto in March 1927. According to the curator Victoria Baker, Neck and Head is “the only known piece dating from her American studies, and a rare example of direct carving in her production. It reveals a radically reduced and stylized treatment of the partial figure, reflective of the experience of carving and a response to the more progressive forms of sculpture she was exposed to at this time.” Although Wyn Wood is best known for her monumental public sculpture work and small-scale, three-dimensional interpretations of the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield, Neck and Head is an important register of the artist’s early experimentalism. This work is currently on view as part of The Modernist Tradition, 1900–1950.

The Inuit Art Centre Project

Ongoing • Mezzanine Gallery Curated by Dr. Stephen Borys

The WAG holds the world’s largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. Amassed over the last 60 years, this amazing collection of over 13,000 carvings, drawings, prints, textiles, and new media is matched by an outstanding record of 160 exhibitions and 60 publications. To celebrate the art and the people who have created these works, the WAG is building an Inuit Art Centre (IAC), the first of its kind in the world. In this new exhibit, architectural renderings, sculpture, and photography outline key aspects of the project: the vision for the Centre, the design process, and a brief history of Inuit art at the WAG. The IAC will be a centre for exhibitions and programs, research and learning, studio practice, and artmaking. It will be a gathering place—a community hub for exploration, dialogue, and inspiration—bridging Canada’s North and South.

EXHIBITIONS

The George & Tannis Richardson Collection of Inuit Art Until Feb 15 • Mezzanine Gallery Curated by Darlene Coward Wight The Richardson Collection is made up of 39 sculptures by 30 artists from 11 communities across the Canadian Arctic, including Nunavut and the region of Nunavik in Arctic Quebec. This magnificent showcase of sculpture captures moments of Northern life, from a bustling winter camp to hunting and transportation. A pair of unusual, large-scale sculptures by respected Igloolik artist Lukie Airut are linked conceptually and stylistically, warning to “be careful...when you are hunting.” Two major sculptures by another Igloolik artist, Isaac Angutautuk, reveal the drama of hunters battling huge and ferocious walruses. The works are carved completely in the round, and must be viewed from multiple angles. Some works from Kimmirut make use of the yellowishgreen serpentinite from a stone deposit at McKellar Bay, eight kilometres southeast of Kimmirut. Joanassie Lyta’s large winter camp scene is an energetic tableau showing an Inuk who has just returned from hunting. Also featured is Salluit carver Tivi Ilisituk’s tender portrayal of a female walrus posed protectively near her pup, as well as an unusual carving of a woman and seal by Akulivik artist Markusi Anauta. Inukjuak artist Jimmy Arnamissak’s large carving shows two men loading a kayak onto a qamutiik for overland transport. In 1970, George Richardson became the first Canadianborn Governor of the Hudson’s Bay Company, serving until 1982. He often flew his helicopter to visit remote Arctic posts, the first governor to journey North since Sir George Simpson in the early 1800s. On his frequent trips to the area, Richardson became interested in the art of the Inuit,

particularly sculpture. He acquired many pieces by artists from communities across the Arctic. It is this collection, donated to the WAG in 2011, that makes up The George & Tannis Richardson Collection of Inuit Sculpture. Tannis Richardson is a dedicated supporter of the WAG. Not only was she instrumental in starting the Study Groups and Art to the Schools, both of which continue to this day, but she has been a member of The Associates of the WAG since 1950. Over the years, The Associates have supported donations of more than 1,000 Canadian works to the WAG collection, including the first pieces of Inuit sculpture to be acquired by the Gallery: 11 works in 1957 and 139 major pieces from George Swinton in 1960. These acquisitions marked a definitive commitment toward building this part of the Gallery’s collection. In 1985 The Associates raised funds for the important purchase of the Ian Lindsay Collection of 410 Inuit sculptures. Today the WAG holds in trust the world’s largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. The George & Tannis Richardson Collection of Inuit Sculpture catalogue is made possible through a generous gift by Douglas and Louise Leatherdale. The WAG is also grateful to Robert and Deirdre Kozminski for supporting this exhibition.

May 14–September 4, 2016 Gallery 8 Curated by Darlene Coward Wight

May 20–August 28, 2016 Gallery 7 Organized by the National Gallery of Canada and the Winnipeg Art Gallery

June 18–September 25, 2016 Gallery 8 Curated by Andrew Kear

Oviloo Tunnillie is the first retrospective of one of the most respected female Inuit sculptors from the Canadian Arctic. Bringing together some 60 sculptures from private and public collections in Canada and the USA, the development of Tunnillie’s work is surveyed from the typical genre of finely-crafted birds and animals in the 1970s, to her exploration of social issues in the 1980s, to autobiographical themes in the 1990s and 2000s.

Russian-born artist Marc Chagall was a pioneer of modernism and a master of colour. The WAG’s latest NGC@ WAG collaboration features Daphnis & Chloé, widely considered the crowning achievement of Chagall’s career as a printmaker.

The WAG is pleased to present Karel Funk’s first retrospective. The exhibition will survey major paintings he completed between 2002 and 2016, with works drawn from select private, corporate, and museum collections across North America.

These prints highlight Chagall’s unique style, setting him apart from the main 20th-century trends followed by many of his contemporaries. The set of 42 lithographs is presented with additional works from the NGC and WAG, including ​Flower Still Life ​(1935).

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Funk has garnered international attention for his precise and unconventional paintings of lone figures clothed in contemporary high-performance outerwear set against white backdrops.

CURATORIAL UPDATE

WAG Welcomes New Indigenous Art Curators

Over the past few months, the WAG’s curatorial team has grown with two new additions specializing in Indigenous art: Dr. Julie Nagam, Chair in History of Indigenous Arts in North America, a joint appointment with the University of Winnipeg; and Jaimie Isaac, Curatorial Resident of Indigenous and Contemporary Art. Dr. Nagam’s portfolio includes research and teaching in the History Department at UWinnipeg, and curatorial and exhibition work at the WAG. The first of its kind in Canada, the position is made possible in part with the support of Michael Nesbitt, who continues to champion contemporary art across the country. Dr. Nagam is responsible for cuttingedge research, and developing courses, exhibitions, and programs designed to enhance and advance the area of Indigenous art both at the University and the Gallery. "There is a growing trend of global recognition of the innovative and dynamic contribution Indigenous artists, curators, and scholars have to offer, and I would like to continue to be at the forefront of this artistic and

curatorial renaissance,” comments Dr. Nagam. A scholar, artist, and curator with a strong background in research and teaching, Dr. Nagam comes back to Winnipeg from Toronto’s OCAD University. She holds a PhD from York University (Social and Political Thought) in addition to a MA (Native Studies) and a BA Honours (Women Studies and Art History) from the University of Manitoba. This fall Dr. Nagam travelled to Australia as a delegate for the Canada Council for the Arts’ First Nations Curatorial Exchange and the 8th Asian Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art. Jaimie Isaac joins the WAG through a two-year residency funded by the Canada Council for the Arts. Isaac’s work is critical to the WAG’s Indigenous mandate, and includes: developing exhibitions and programs in partnership with local and national Indigenous organizations; and acquiring contemporary Indigenous art for the WAG; thereby raising the profile of artists locally and beyond. Isaac’s first project and exhibition at the WAG, We Are On Treaty Land

(page 4), is garnering significant attention, promoting collaboration and dialogue in the community. Watch for her upcoming exhibitions in 2017: Border X and Mino’ayaawin (health and wellness). “The WAG has an important history in regards to Indigenous arts in Canada,” states Isaac. “A big part of the residency will be to engage and collaborate with Indigenous communities to create exhibitions that are meaningful, relevant, and dynamic.” Isaac holds a BA in Art History and an Arts and Cultural Management Certificate from the University of Winnipeg, as well as a MA from the University of British Columbia Okanagan. Working in diverse areas in the arts sector has informed her career as an innovative, freelance curator and interdisciplinary artist. She has successfully published essays, presented at international conferences, participated in artist residencies, and curated and exhibited work nationally.

Adventure Canada Tour to the Arctic and Greenland

historian, an archaeologist, filmmaker John Houston, son of James Houston who introduced printmaking to the Inuit, artist Pootogook Qiatsuk, and Dr. Borys. On the floating university Dr. Borys gave three well-attended lectures and seminars. A special guest on the trip was Hidekazu Tojo, the world-renowned sushi chef from Vancouver. During the trip we all had an opportunity to watch him prepare sushi, to practise making our own, and of course to eat it.

Every traveller holds their own particular memories: the stark beauty of the land, the warmth of the people, the special blue of an iceberg are some we will hold dearly. The North is a special place. By Harry and Mary Lynn Duckworth This was no ordinary cruise! On July 17 a dozen adventurers under the auspices of The Associates of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and in the capable hands of Sue Irving, joined 190 others on the Ocean Endeavour for a two-week Adventure Canada expedition into the “Heart of the Arctic.” Among the party were Dr. Stephen Borys, Director & CEO of the WAG, his wife Hazel, and son Roman.

The wild and uninhabited Digges Islands awaited, with remnants of early Inuit dwellings; Cape Dorset saw carvers working en plein air, along with print shops that made the opportunity to buy irresistible. Kimmirut (Lake Harbour) was memorable, with its enthusiastic Inuit games in the community centre. Before sailing off to Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, with its outstanding museum, the group inspected an iceberg up close in Davis Strait. Greenland offered fiords and glaciers and friendly, tiny communities, as well as a very competitive soccer match between the village of Itilleq and the ship. The expedition ended with a visit to the Greenland ice cap before flying home to a land with trees. The exceptional Adventure Canada team on board included a geologist, naturalists, Inuit culturalists, an
