Crate, Chuck (1996)
The collages of Saskatchewan artist Chuck Crate (1915-1992) originate in his politicized imagination. By recombining images from popular media, Crate's explores his position within local (southwestern Saskatchewan) and global communities. His wide personal interests - spiritualism, indigenous cultures, labour politics and a special obsession with the youth culture of the 1960s and 1970s - informed his work as much as twentieth century art. Using images from magazines, reproductions from art postcards and many other sources, Chuck Crate pieced together artwork which articulates a particular social and personal identity. Essays by guest curator Grant McConnell, and family members Joan, Stephanie and Lilian Crate are included in a brochure published in conjunction with a touring exhibition of Chuck Crate's work.
