Scope and content

The records in this sub-series relate to the development and implementation of the Robert Davidson exhibition The Abstract Edge at MOA. The Abstract Edge opened at the Museum of Anthropology on June 22nd, 2004 through January 30th 2005. The Abstract Edge then went on a cross-Canadian tour from 2005-2007, which was sponsored by the National Gallery of Canada.

Files consist of exhibition planning notes, research, reporting, grant applications, contracts, correspondences, event planning, articles and publications, and transcripts. Additionally, some files in the series also relate to the publication for the exhibition which Duffek wrote in conjunction with Robert Houle. Most of the photographic transparencies were taken for publication images. Other files relate to Robert Davidson in general, such as transcripts of interviews, public lectures, and past exhibitions.
