The public is invited to visit and reflect on a new exhibit at Gallery@501 titled “...bring a folding chair”, on display from October 9 - 30, 2021. This exhibit, inspired by Black History Month, recognizes the significant on-going contributions Black Canadian artists make in Alberta.

This exhibit features the artwork of AJA Louden, Elsa Robinson, Braxton Garneau and Fetsum Teclemariam. With artworks exploring history, heritage and contemporary concerns, these artists bring this exhibition to the table of Canadian and Albertan society and give voice to our common humanity.

The exhibition “...bring a folding chair” was curated by Shane Golby and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) Travelling Exhibition Program. The Travelling Exhibition program is supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
