If “video killed the radio star” in 1980, what impact did it have on traditional art media?

The 80s Image explores the curious resiliency of painting and still-photography throughout the decade, and artists’ responsiveness to the rapidly expanding media landscape-video, television, cinema, satellite and computer imagery, and billboard advertising. In this exhibition, you’ll see approximately 50 works by Canadian artists whose paintings and photographs helped to define the 1980s.

Featuring work by
Roy Arden, Barbara Astman, Eleanor Bond, Bob Boyer, David Buchan, Brian Burnett, Sheila Butler, Lynne Cohen, Sorel Cohen, Carole Conde/Karl Beveridge, Douglas Curran, Peter Doig, Stan Douglans, William Eakin, Evergon, Cliff Eyland, FASTWÜRMS, Rosalie Favell, Suzanne Funnell, Suzanne Gauthier, General Idea, Larry Glawson, Jack Goldstein, Will Gorlitz, Janice Gurney, Robert Houle, Natalka Husar, Nomi Kaplan, Wanda Koop, Stephen Livick, Ken Lum, David McMillan, John Paskievich, Alison Rossiter, Tony Scherman, Jeffrey M.
