Vancouver Art Gallery definitely moving
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.
