Abstract (English)

"Instead of lamenting Edmonton’s ignored bid to house Gatineau’s treasure, Edmonton artists build a grassroots collection in the West, calling on artists across the country to join in. The NPG hopes to revitalize, decentralize and liberate the idea of a national portrait gallery, starting at Latitude 53. Traditional portraiture will compliment film, music and other experimental forms, with a focus on Canadian subjects familiar, iconic, personal and sometimes abstract." -- Publisher's website.
