Mind the Gap! was a fascinating installation of unusual scope, celebrating the enormous diversity of talent among emerging and mid-career artists in Saskatchewan. Featuring the work of 27 artists from every nook and cranny cross the province: North Battleford, Canora, La Ronge, Lloydminster, Moose Jaw, North Portal, Pense, Prince Albert, Regina, Rockglen, Saskatoon, Shellbrook and Swift Current, this exhibition provided not only a fresh perspective, but a visual, cerebral and geographic map of the emerging arts landscape in Saskatchewan. The title Mind the Gap! makes reference to a misguided description of Saskatchewan as the “gap” province in Canada’s consciousness and geo–cultural landscape. The exhibition’s title also invokes the famous automated safety warning on the London tube, “Mind the Gap!” The artists of Saskatchewan do mind, and this exhibit was a call out to the world – you better mind us too! Work in the exhibition ranged from photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, video, installation, performance, cartoons, and web-based projects, and provided a rare insight into the trends, innovations, energy, and interests informing a young generation of Prairie artists.
