Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque showcases a selection of works by contemporary artists that draw upon aspects of the historical Baroque: material excess, accumulation, bravado, theatricality and the construction of immersive, emotive environments. This presence of what could be called the ‘neo-baroque’ has, in recent time, been a recurring facet of contemporary art in Canada and around the world.
