Waterworks brings together contemporary and historical art that demonstrates the various ways Canadian artists have depicted or used water in the creation of their work. The exhibition features paintings, sculptures, installations and works on paper.
For many of the contemporary artists in Waterworks, environmental and social issues around the use and abuse of water are a major concern. Rather than using traditional media, water has been used as an element in the work of several artists featured in this exhibition.
