Hundreds of people attend the opening.
On September 11, the WAG, in partnership with the National Gallery of Canada, presents a major exhibition of the work of Manitoba artist Wanda Koop.
Wanda Koop: On the Edge of Experience features large-scale paintings from the last 35 years. Highlighting the show is a new work, Hybrid Human, combining painting and video with the dance choreography of Jolene Bailie set against a sound piece by Susan Chafe and lighting by Hugh Conacher. Koop has a particularly strong connection to the WAG, having first studied art through the Gallery’s Saturday morning art classes as a youth.
