MIND THE GAP! is a fascinating installation of unusual scope, celebrating the enormous diversity of talent among emerging and mid-career artists in Saskatchewan. Featuring the work of 27 artists from every nook and cranny across the province, this exhibition provides not only a fresh perspective, but a visual, cerebral and geographic map of the emerging arts landscape in Saskatchewan. Work in the exhibition ranges from photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, video, installation, performance, cartoons, and web-based projects, and provides a rare insight into the trends, innovations, energy, and interests informing a young generation of prairie artists.
