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