ONCE UPON A TIME . . . THE WESTERN A New Frontier in Art and Film

From October 14 2017 to February 4 2018

Once Upon a Time… the Western is the first major multidisciplinary exhibition to offer a new interpretation of the Western film genre by examining its links to the visual arts from the middle of the 19th century to today. This exhibition studies the creation and transformation of the Western myth through over 400 paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, artefacts, film stills and excerpts. It celebrates the beauty of the Western while revealing certain prejudices against the peoples of the First Nations that it helped to perpetuate.
