The Writing on the Wall: Works of Dr. Joane Cardinal-Schubert RCA is a long overdue examination of this artist’s work that will be installed in the Nickle Galleries. The exhibition reflects the cyclical nature of Joane Cardinal-Schubert’s (1942-2009) work, including 60 pivotal pieces in painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, ceramic, and installation. The works are drawn from collections from across Canada including, the National Gallery of Canada, many private collections and the participation of the artist’s son and widow in recreating several of her installation pieces.
A corresponding publication has been created to highlighting the lasting relevance of her work and career, showing her work is topical even years after her death. Currently under review with the UCalgary Press, this publication tells the story of Joane Cardinal-Schubert in several ways.
