Event Details

Contemporary Calgary will be showcasing the important, timely, and relevant exhibition Omar Ba: Same Dream from September 10, 2020 to March 14, 2021. Senegalese / Swiss artist Omar Ba's work engages with some of the most urgent issues of our time: the growing inequality of wealth and power globally, questions around immigration, and our changing relationship with the natural world. Same Dream brings together several of Ba's paintings depicting dictators and authority figures, who lead corrupt and violent regimes across the African continent and in other parts of the world, particularly where the legacies of colonialism persist.

This exhibition will consist of 18 large scale works which will showcase Omar Ba's vision and allow the viewer to form a deep connection with them. The location of the exhibition - in Contemporary Calgary's new 5,000 square foot Flanagan Family Gallery - will also allow our visitors to fully immerse themselves in all of Ba's works in one dedicated space. In addition to the exhibition, Contemporary Calgary will be presenting a range of public programming which will complement the exhibition. These will include programs for children, families, and adults, and consist of workshops, tours, lectures and more.
