RAGA Members’ Only Curator Tour: 6:00 pm
Opening Remarks & Live Performance by Lucien Durey: 7:00 pm
Opening Reception: 8:00 -10:00 pm

In partnership with the Richmond Museum, the Richmond Art Gallery presents Eternal Return, an ambitious exhibition guest curated by Sunshine Frère presenting new works by five Vancouver-based artists: Barb Choit, Kevin Day, Lucien Durey, Alanna Ho and Anchi Lin. Each artist has selected artifacts from the Museum’s Migration Collection and developed works in direct dialogue with this eclectic array of historical objects. The products of this dialogue span a diverse range of media including performance, video, photography, sound, and sculpture. Artworks and the artifacts that inspired them will be on display in the gallery, allowing visitors to uncover their polymorphous histories.

Join RAGA Board Members and Gallery staff to enjoy wine, appetizers, and a chance to meet the artists and guest curator. These free events happen once per exhibition for RAGA Members and their guests. RSVP required to Kathy at or 604-247-8313.
