Posted November 02, 2018 08:49:00 When it came to art — and it’s certainly been a part of the human experience for a very long time — it was always about the art.
“There was never a time when it wasn’t,” says Mark Pritchard, who is currently a senior curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
“It was a matter of being able to see something and then see the pieces on display.
The most important thing was seeing the pieces that you wanted to see.
I would not call the artist, ‘the artist,'” he adds.
It’s a theme echoed in an exhibition called The Art of Life, curated by the Ontario Art Gallery.
The exhibit, which opens at the Ontario Museum of Art this fall, explores the ways art can transform lives through its impact on health, the environment, culture and the economy.
Pritchard explains the idea behind the exhibit as a “humanist, eco-feminist, feminist-oriented exhibition,” where artworks are displayed to “understand the interconnectedness of the lives of all people, and the impact they have on the planet and the world.”
“It’s about the impact that art can have on our lives,” says Pritick.
“So it’s about creating the kind of spaces that really can connect people to one another.
It was an exploration of the relationship between art and people, art and the environment and art and nature, and then it was about how that connection can be lived, how that love can be found.”
The Art of Living (2015) and its accompanying exhibit will be part of a wider exhibition on art and culture in Canada at the Canadian Art Gallery in Ottawa, the Ontario Contemporary Art Gallery and the Art Fund of Ontario, which was established in 2011 to support and nurture the growth of art and creative industries in Canada.
As part of this work, the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa has created a new online exhibition of artworks from across the country.
The exhibition, entitled The Art Of Living: How Art Is Changing Our Lives, will run until March 31.
It’s part of an ongoing series of online exhibitions by the Canadian Centre for Art and Design and the University of Toronto’s Institute for the Arts, which were launched in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
The exhibition, titled Art and Change: Changing the World Through Art and Art, aims to inspire people to change their ways of seeing and feeling, and to become more active in their communities, said Heather Wilson, the director of the Canadian Cultural Centre.
“I think it is very important to think about art as a catalyst for change and for change to come.
I think it’s really important for us to think of art as an asset for our society, not as a tool,” she added.
“There’s a lot of art in the world, and you know, we’ve got this huge wealth of art out there, and we’re not really aware of the impact it’s having on people’s lives,” Wilson said.
Art is a powerful tool for understanding our place in the universe and changing our perceptions of what life is like, she said.
“It is a tool for bringing people together.
It is a catalyst of communication.
And that’s really powerful.
I believe that art is not just a tool, it is a vehicle to bring people together, and it is an investment in the future.”
Pritzker-nominated artist and educator, and Ontario-born, New York-raised artist and filmmaker, Mark Pritzker, has a theory on how we can use art to change our world.
He believes that art has been around for ages, but it can’t be seen or experienced for long enough before it has an impact.
“The idea of art has always been that it’s just another commodity that you can make money on, that you have to pay for,” he said.
“But that’s not the truth.
There’s something there that is so powerful and so beautiful that people need to be aware of it.”
In the exhibition, which is titled The Art and Life, the exhibition explores how artworks can be used as a bridge between the human and the natural worlds.
Pritchards exhibition, he said, is a “bridge to the natural world, which in turn brings you to the human.”
According to Pritchers exhibition, the human eye can see the “true beauty of the universe in the deepest detail, but our natural eyes can’t see that detail in detail.”
It was Pritichards intention to put the exhibition together in the hopes that it would “be a catalyst to encourage people to have a deeper engagement with the natural environment,” and to explore the ways that art could be used in the natural realm.
He said that while there’s still a lot we don’t know about the universe, he believes it’s a beautiful place and that it should be
