Acadie Time: The Works of Pete Goguen (1950-1998)

The exhibition and accompanying catalogue are meant to promote the life and work of Pierre (Pete) Goguen. A print series titled Acadie Time gives the impression that Pete Goguen was amongst the more engaged artists of his period. His silkscreen prints, created in 1975 under the guise of the Time magazine cover layout, seem to demonstrate a commitment to a cause, that of Acadian nationalism. Author and curator Mario Doucette questions whether the works from the Acadie Time series truly reflect the artist’s nationalistic aspirations. And if not, what did he intend?
