The Southern Alberta Art Gallery is hosting three thematically linked exhibitions on architecture, titled Lethbridge Modern. Curated by Calgary architect and architectural historian Gerald L. Forseth, MAAA, FRAIC, and University of Lethbridge Faculty of Fine Arts instructor and independent curator Victoria Baster, the show aims to promote an appreciation of the quickly disappearing face of mid-century modern architecture. Residences, public buildings and suburban development and planning will be highlighted as elements of the city’s adaptive modernism–an application of modern design principles to vernacular architecture in a rapidly developing post-war city.
