The Spectacle of Play

Category Arts & Culture The Spectacle of Play May 25, 2013 to September 25, 2013 Presented By Art Gallery of Hamilton In this special exhibition, the flagship presentation of the 2013 theme World at Play, historic and contemporary artworks pre-sent these variations in tandem. An 18 foot salon-style installation of 19th-century paintings redolent of the Parisian Salon—the epitome of period spectacle—will be juxtaposed with a dramatic, oversized black and white film devoted to chess by contemporary Canadian artist Marcel Dzama. Portraits of sports players, and memorable mo-ments in sports history, as well as a contemporary sculpture by Graeme Patterson depicting Daryl Sittler's famous 10-goal hockey game in 1976 will take us into the heart of the most literal meaning of play: the sports world. WHEN: On view May 25, 2013 to January 12, 2014 Art Gallery of Hamilton, 123 King Street West, Hamilton, ON events for Art Gallery of Hamilton. Event Details. Location: Hamilton, Ontario
