About the Museum:
The Buhler Gallery is a place of hope, healing and contemplation for patients, their families, staff and visitors. Curated exhibitions, engaging and thought provoking, change throughout the year and feature the work of contemporary Canadian artists.
St. Boniface Hospital recognizes the benefits of the arts in health and healing; and its impact on the fabric of daily life. By establishing this dedicated gallery, the hospital is enhancing the role of the arts in health, and well-being within our larger community.
The Buhler Gallery holds 400 pieces of art work, donated by artists and art collectors, in its permanent collection. Many of those pieces are on display in locations throughout the hospital.
There is no fee to visit and the Gallery is wheelchair accessible.
Dura Mater: Objective/Subjective
May 13th to September 12th, 2021
Dura Mater: Objective/Subjective looks at the work of a group of neuroscientists through the eyes of five artists and gives us a glimpse of the arcane made knowable. Objective scientific truths are made visible through the subjective lenses of the artists.
Julie Gendron, Erika Lincoln, Bonnie Marin, Janet Shaw-Russell and Tricia Wasney were paired with researchers from the Manitoba Neuroscience Network who graciously shared their work, knowledge, and ideas. This show facilitates new conversations between science and the arts, with diverse and thought provoking works.
The project has been over a year in the making. MAWA launched the project in partnership with the Manitoba Neuroscience Network in 2019. Director/Curator of the Buhler Gallery, Leona Herzog, joined as coordinator and then as curator, culminating in an exhibition at the Buhler Gallery.
