Edmonton – North American Headquarters

Edmonton, AB (April 16, 2018) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce a $25,000 sponsorship at the Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA).
 

Hubert Hohn: Edmonton Entrances and Suburban Landscapes is an exhibition featuring works from two photographic series created by Edmonton-based photographer Hubert Hohn in the 1970s.

In 1974, Hohn undertook a comprehensive project entitled “Edmonton Entrances," in which he photographed the decorated doorways of the 1940s and 1950s fieldstone and stucco bungalows that proliferate in Edmonton. These highly coloured and richly detailed images reveal the incredible creativity and variety of this unique element of Edmonton vernacular design. A year later, in 1975, Hubert Hohn focused his lens on the modern residential areas in Edmonton’s growing suburbs. The Suburban Landscapes, shot in black and white, reveal new design aesthetics common to homes built in the 1970s (AGA website).

The exhibition runs from April 13 to August 5, 2018.

PCL and the AGA

PCL’s ongoing support of the AGA includes being the presenting sponsor of The Bequest: Ernest E. Poole and the AGA Collection (2013), The Poole Centre of Design (2015), and Fischli and Weiss/Ibghy and Lemmens (2017).

The Poole Centre of Design is made possible by a generous donation from the John and Barbara Poole Family Fund, through the Edmonton Community Foundation. John and Barbara Poole were great patrons of the arts who believed in engaging people of all walks of life in art and design. The AGA is honored to continue their legacy through the Poole Centre of Design.
