Director Programs/Chief Curator-Remai Modern Art Gallery of Saskatchewan
Opening to the public in 2016, Remai Modern Art Gallery of Saskatchewan (Remai Modern) is a direction-setting modern art museum taking shape at River Landing in downtown Saskatoon, Canada. Inspired by the local landscape and the rich history of architectural modernism, the renowned Canadian architectural firm KPMB has designed a 130,000 square foot museum that will be an architectural centerpiece for the city.
Wrapping around the Persephone Theatre, the museum will be the largest in the province and five times the size of Saskatoon’s current Mendel Art Gallery, which will close in 2015. Remai Modern will take over the collection of 7,700 works of art in the Mendel Collection, which has been supplemented by a $20 million collection of Picasso linocut prints donated by the Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation to Remai Modern. The Foundation also donated a further $30 million to the gallery, $15 million toward the construction cost and $15 million for future international programming. The combined donation is amongst the largest to an art gallery in Canadian history.
The new building is supported by all levels of government and, most importantly, by generous donors, including families and corporations. To date over $100 million has been pledged toward the cost of construction of the gallery, including an underground parking garage. Construction began in April 2013. The gallery’s first Executive Director and CEO commenced duties the following month. The museum will be a vibrant, imaginative and prescient institution committed to affirming the powerful role that art and artists play in questioning, interpreting and defining the modern era.
