McMichael Canadian Art Collection, 2023
Introduction and edited by Sarah Milroy; essay by Guy Maddin
Marcel Dzama (b. 1974) is a Winnipeg-born artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Over the past two decades Dzama has been showing his work in leading institutions around the world, yet he has received only minimal exposure in Canadian museums. This catalogue includes new work he has made especially for the exhibition by the same name, playfully exploring the myth of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, as well as the landscape of Manitoba and Saskatchewan where he grew up. It will be a spectacular homecoming for one of Canada's brightest international art stars. With a foreword by McMichael Executive Director and Chief Curator, Sarah Milroy, the publication features an interview with the artist conducted by Milroy and an essay by Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin.
