Forgotten Flowers

April 4 to 26, 2014
Gurevich Fine Art, Winnipeg

Form and colour have long been a language all their own for Milos Milidrag. He fled his country, war-ravaged Yugoslavia, in 1997 to live in Winnipeg. The shockwaves of his past continue to ripple through his work. In his latest exhibit Forgotten Flowers, Milidrag conjures his narrative using symbols - a woman (his muse of inspiration), a bird (freedom), or at times a fish (silence) and flowers (our frequently forgotten values).

Spirit Lake Project

Specimen Gardens

April 3 to June 7, 2014
Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba

Using a mixture of found materials and artifacts that trigger the process of rearranging, Flemington’s installation constructs an imagined space through specimen gardens of obsolete objects. The exhibition will consist of a site-specific installation that draws from Flemington's personal collections, as well as those found at the AGSM and other local institutions.

Silent Transformation

April 4 to June 7, 2014
Urban Shaman

Silent Transformation is a video installation constructed of common materials. A black tarp is re-deployed as a screen to display an enigmatic text concerning the passage of time. This particular combination of elements is conceived as a deliberately ad hoc formation, informed by something other than a strict, defined utility.

Sensing the Future: Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts

March 8 to May 11, 2014
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, Winnipeg

Sensing the Future considers the impact of technology today by exploring how it was addressed in the practice of the Hungarian polymath artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895 – 1946), a key figure in the history of Modernism. Moholy-Nagy is known for his work in traditional media such as painting and sculpture, but also in less conventional forms such as photography and film, as well as commercial fields like stage and exhibition design, typography, and advertising.
