The Kelowna Art Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition series to be installed annually in our Mardell G Reynolds Gallery space. One on One will be curated each year by an emerging Aboriginal curator. This individual will select an emerging Canadian Aboriginal artist with whom s/he is interested in working. The resulting exhibition will be accompanied by a web-based publication. It is intended that both the curator and artist will be on hand for the installation and opening of the exhibition.
This year Winnipeg-based independent curator Jenny Western has selected artist Kenneth Lavallee to work with in producing an exhibition here. Lavallee is a painter, also living and working in Winnipeg. Lavallee will be working on a new body of work for this exhibition/installation. He and Western have been speaking together of their Man and Nature exhibition title, using the bygone term “man” ironically, in reference to the culture of the mid-twentieth century.
