press release

The Royal Art Lodge was created in 1996 by six students from the University of Manitoba’s art department who began meeting regularly to make drawings together. The large body of work that was produced--date-stamped rather than signed by the members--constitutes a veritable catalogue of the Art Lodge’s dry wit, quirky sense of humor, and regional obsessions of its Winnipeg-based members. The group began with Marcel Dzama, Neil Farber, Michael Dumontier, Drue Langlois, Adrian Williams, and Jonathan Pylypchuk and later included Hollie Dzama and Myles Langlois. This exhibition presents a selection of the Royal Art Lodge’s collective and solo works in various mediums from the past seven years. Jointly organized by The Drawing Center, New York; The Power Plant, Toronto; De Vleeshal, Middelburg, the Netherlands; and Plug In ICA, Winnipeg, the exhibition is coordinated by MOCA Assistant Curator Michael Darling.
