Vancouver Art Gallery definitely moving

Posted by on January 30 at 10:19 AM

They’ve talked about expanding for a while, but over the weekend made the announcement that they won’t be staying in their august 1911 building, a former provincial courthouse on Georgia and Hornby streets. Where will the gallery go? Not sure, but directors seem to have ambitious plans and want to stay downtown. The full story is here, from the Globe and Mail.

Also this weekend, the gallery opened the first comprehensive survey by Vancouver artist Brian Jungen, known for sculptures and installations that turn common materials into totems, like this mask fashioned from Nike Air Jordans.


The Jungen show is up through April 30.

I guess this is good news.

I just hope that, when it comes to moves and expansions, SAM and Vancouver can keep up with the Tacoma Art Museum. And no, I'm not being facetious. I love the new Tacoma Art Museum: the building, the permanent collection, the choices they've made with their exhibitions.

Hope you come back soon!!

Hi there! Your site is cool!

Your site is amaizing. Can I share some resources with you?
