Terrible Beauty opens at NAG

Nanaimo Art Gallery has partnered with Nanaimo Museum

Nanaimo Art Gallery has partnered with Nanaimo Museum to present A Terrible Beauty: Edward Burtynsky in Dialogue with Emily Carr.

Toronto-based photographer Edward Burtynsky is internationally renowned for his captivating images of natural and man-made landscapes that reflect both the impressive reach of human enterprise and the extraordinary impact of our hubris.

This exhibition presents a selection of photographs Burtynsky produced between 1983 and 2013 that together represent all his major bodies of work, from his early series of homestead photographs shot in British Columbia in the early 1980s, to his new, ground breaking project that explores water’s fundamental place in the world ecology.

The Nanaimo Museum is located in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre and is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. Contact the museum at 250 753-1821 or visit www.nanaimomuseum.ca
