Marcel Dzama's delicate and fantastical drawings made with watercolour paint and root beer catapulted the Winnipeg-born artist to international fame in the late 1990s. Since then, Dzama has relocated to Brooklyn, New York, expanding his practice to include performance, sculpture, and video. Ghost of Canoe Lake: Recent Work by Marcel Dzama celebrates a new body of work inspired by the artist's interest in Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, recalling as well his childhood spent in the landscape of Manitoba and Saskatchewan .

Featuring paintings, installation, and video Ghost of Canoe Lake: Recent Work by Marcel Dzama is the first major exhibition of Dzama's work in Canada in more than a decade. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Contemporary Calgary.
