Gord Smith

Study “Canada Screen” Expo 67, 1965 Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont

Painted steel, 311 × 428 × 125 cm

Gord Smith’s Study "Canada Screen" Expo 67 was created as part of the Quebec Symposium of 1965, organized by the Ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec to enhance the new Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal’s art collection. The sculpture features elements that symbolically burst forth, conveying Smith’s obsession with capturing the movement, fleetingness and intensity of life. It also introduces sculptural elements, such as radiating forms and vertical slabs, that would be included in the artist’s mural Canada Screen, 1967, commissioned by the Canadian government for its pavilion at Expo 67.

Born in Montreal (Québec), Canada, in 1937
