    Holger Kalberg’s ('01) latest exhibition, THE FAMILY, explores the legacy of high Modernism and its related utopian models of thinking, presenting new paintings and sculptures that examine and critique modes of Modernist vocabulary.
     
    Kalberg describes his own relationship with Modernism as “conflicted appreciation,” often engaging with the aesthetics of the mode while at the same time critiquing the model. The works presented in this exhibition follow Kalberg’s desire for a renewed reflection of Modernist formalism through an investigation into the artist's own studio practice, motivation, and early influences, especially Joseph Beuys and his socialist/utopian agenda.

    “I’ve wanted to be a painter ever since I was 16 years old,” says Odette Venuti who attended Emily Carr during the late 60’s, when the school was still known as the Vancouver School of Art.

    A Fine Arts major, she recalls what made the school unique during that decade. “I attended in what you might call hippy dippy times, and certainly it was very different, not as academic as today, perhaps,“ she says, ”but we were tremendously aware – our generation was highly engaged, we were concerned…and we weren’t quiet.”
