Vancouver Art Gallery Events
UBC Robson Square, Theatre C300
1 – 5pm
Vancouver Special: Ambivalent Pleasures includes work by forty visual artists, as an assessment of the contemporary art activity in the city over the last five years. The featured works of art do not adhere to a singular subject or style but instead point to overlapping and ongoing conversations about abstraction, Surrealism and conceptual practice. In this afternoon of talks, artists and writers offer perspectives on these qualities of the exhibition and highlight the nuanced and stimulating spaces in-between definitions.
