Edward Burtynsky exhibition at AGA

Burtynsky OIL Cover

Bur­tyn­sky OIL Cover

Sev­eral years ago, the Art Gallery of Alberta here in Edmon­ton pre­sented an exhi­bi­tion of Edward Burtynsky’s “Man­u­fac­tured Land­scapes” work, and I was com­pletely blown away by the beauty of Burtynsky’s large-scale pho­tographs of indus­trial land­scapes (mines, rail­cuts, quar­ries, recy­cling yards, etc.). Next week a new show of Burtynsky’s work will open at AGA, enti­tled “EDWARD BURTYNSKY: OIL” and will be show­ing until the 2nd of January.

I highly, highly rec­om­mend that you visit the gallery while this show is up, and if you haven’t seen it already, the new AGA build­ing itself is worth the visit. Click here for a link to the AGA page, with more details about addi­tional pro­gram­ming related to the exhi­bi­tion. (Unfor­tu­nately, Burtynsky’s open­ing lec­ture is sold out — if you have a spare ticket I’d love to hear from you…).
