Brian Jungen, Shapeshifter, 2000
National Gallery of Canada
The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa is re-installing its galleries of the history of Canadian art to provide a better and more inclusive look at our nation’s culture. The new galleries will open on June 15th 2017, for the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
In the meantime there is a special display in the Upper Contemporary Gallery of the NGC where Brian Jungen’s Shapeshifter of 2000 and Vienna of 2003 are currently on view together. Although both works are part of the permanent national collection, their size, 6.6 metres and 8.5 metres respectively has meant that they are rarely displayed side by side.
