    CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

    Dana Claxton: Fringing the Cube | October 27, 2018 – February 3, 2019

    The first exhibition to survey the formidable career of Vancouver-based Hunkpapa Lakota (Sioux) artist Dana Claxton. Known for her expansive multidisciplinary approach to art making, Claxton investigates notions of Indigenous identity, beauty, gender and the body. Comprising photography, video, text-based work and documentation of her performances, Dana Claxton: Fringing the Cubepresents a body of work that is both visually compelling and thought provoking.

    Guo Pei: Couture Beyond | October 13, 2018 – January 20, 2019

    Guo Pei: Couture Beyond is the first Canadian exhibition devoted to the work of Guo Pei, China’s preeminent couturière. This mid-career survey features more than forty complete looks from Guo Pei’s most iconic runways from 2006 to 2017. In her theatrical, extravagant creations, Guo Pei combines contemporary aesthetics, production methods and materials with ancient tradition, evoking Chinese history and mythology in her craft techniques, fabric selection and imagery. The exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of her evolution as a designer as well as her contribution to global fashion culture.

    The Metamorphosis | November 24, 2018 – March 17, 2019 

    The Metamorphosis brings together contemporary art from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s permanent collection that addresses the notion of transformation—whether it be physical, spiritual or cultural. Some artists featured physically alter the appearance of their materials, while others repurpose everyday objects in evocative ways. Some create works that suggest a movement between different realms or states, seeking altered consciousness or spiritual transcendence. Others still engage the issue of cultural hybridity as a result of shifts between one milieu and another, often pointing to the difficulties of translation that result. Many of the works in The Metamorphosis have been acquired within the past five years, and several of them will be on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery for the first time.
