The National Gallery of Canada is offering this celebratory limited edition print by BGL, the Quebec City art collective chosen to represent Canada at the Venice Biennale, May 9 to Nov. 22, 2015. (Canvas is a CMYK print, 61 x 92 cm, numbered edition of 200.)Unfamiliar with BGL? Artists Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière, whose last names form the collective’s initials, have been collaborating for 20 years to create ambitious sculptures, performance works and installations, including most recently Water Velocity, a huge sculpture outside the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre’s Olympic-sized pools.
