In 1918 a mysterious illness swept the globe. The “Spanish Flu,” as the pandemic came to be known, was indiscriminate and ruthless. Estimates place the world-wide mortality rate between 20 million and 100 million people, including 50,000 in Canada.
The exhibition In Flew Enza: The Spanish Flu Comes to Alberta focuses on the societal impacts of the “Spanish Flu.” The exhibition combines contemporary artworks with historical documents and images to locate events, contextualize the pandemic, identify lasting legacies and link present-day Albertans with this long-distant event.
